Barclays returns for headline sponsorship of Pride in London

This year's Pride in London theme is '#nofilter'

Barclays has revealed it will again be the headline sponsor of this year’s Pride in London festival.

The popular LGBTI event returns 10-26 June, with this year’s theme being ‘#nofilter’.

Following the announcement, Mike Roemer, Barclays’ Global LGBT+ lead and Head of Compliance, said: ‘Pride in London is a highlight of the LGBT+ calendar in the UK and a key element in our own programme of activities in support of diversity and inclusion in the workplace, and we are delighted to be continuing our support as headline sponsor.’

He added: ‘Our on-going relationship with Pride, both in London and across the UK, is just one of the ways in which we show our commitment to the LGBT+ community.  At Barclays we want our colleagues, customers and clients to feel free to express who they are at all times.

‘We’ve made great strides internally in creating an inclusive global workplace, but we want to go further. By supporting Pride in London, we’re saying “this is who we are” and we want to encourage everyone else to be able to say who they are, without fear.’

Chair of Pride in London, Michael Salter-Church MBE commented: ‘The support of Barclays as our headline sponsor alongside the Mayor of London quite simply makes Pride in London possible. The financial, practical and moral support the team at Barclays provides Team Pride has been crucial to our development as we have worked to put London’s Pride celebrations onto a sustainable footing for the long term.

‘The wholehearted engagement of everyone at Barclays from the Chief Executive to branch staff has been very powerful and shows what an incredible impact employers can have through supporting their LGBT+ staff in this highly visible way.’
