Founder & CEO of INvolve, Suki Sandhu OBE, says: 

"LGBT+ discrimination is still prevalent in a lot of the world’s biggest economies, but highlighting the work of successful role models changes people’s perceptions. They demonstrate that you can be successful and out at work, but most importantly inspire the next generation of LGBT+ leaders."

The BNP Paribas Pride employee network – a global community created by employees to support and celebrate the LGBT+ community – celebrates a decade of fostering diversity and inclusion next month in the UK, and in October the BNP Paribas Pride France network also marked its fourth anniversary.
