In celebration of The Dublin Pride Festival this week, which celebrates lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (‘LGBT’) life in Ireland today at Cpl we hosted a Pride breakfast in aid of Outhouse, with the help of the fabulous Davina Devine and our own Rita. The breakfast was also a celebration for our BeProud@Cpl committee – for Aisling Kelly and her commitment to equality over the past 18 months and for our brand new co-chairs: Peter Godwin & Orla Kelly.
The Co-Chairs will be responsible for being the face of the BeProud@Cpl both internally and externally with clients, supporting committee members to fulfil their tasks and champion any BeProud@Cpl initiatives.
CEO Anne Heraty commented… “Pride is a celebration of diversity and inclusion and our modern Ireland, which has overcome inequalities and injustices for many people in society. At Cpl we are committed to creating an environment whereby our people feel they can bring their whole selves to work and are proud to do so. We are delighted as an organisation to support the Pride Festival and to be part of the celebrations.”
In addition to the Pride breakfast, Cpl will be continuing celebrations on Saturday at the Pride Parade for the second year in a row. As this year’s theme for Pride is ‘Family’ Cpl have also invited employees to bring along their Family and Friends along to the parade.
Happy Dublin Pride! If you’d like to join us at the Pride Parade you can find full details here: dublinpride.ie/parade
