The Growth Company supports Manchester’s LGBTQ+ community at Manchester Pride

To celebrate and support Manchester’s LGBTQ+ community, the Growth Company will be taking part in this year’s Pride Parade on Saturday 24 August.

The Growth Company’s goal is to become a choice employer and a committed champion of equality across Greater Manchester. Much is already being done to achieve this aim, including:

  • recruitment based on skills, relevant qualifications and experience, regardless of gender, disability, ethnic origin, religion or belief, sexual orientation, marital status, age or nationality;
  • the appointment of an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion team to ensure employers, partners and customers are aware of the organisations values; and
  • support for different lifestyles, cultures and work preferences through agile working giving employees more flexibility around where, when and how they work.

To celebrate Manchester Pride, the Growth Company will be changing its social media logos to the LGBTQ+ community flag throughout August.

Happy Pride, Manchester!
