Portico Launches New Diversity and Inclusion Education Sessions

Our People
17 May 2023

This week, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our new D&I education sessions at Portico! As part of this initiative, we invite all employees to join us for a special webinar titled ‘Awareness, Allyship, and Authenticity’ today on May 17th, the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT). This day was specifically chosen to commemorate the momentous occasion when the World Health Organization declassified homosexuality as a mental illness in 1990.

At Portico, we firmly believe in building a culture of equality, diversity, and inclusion. We strive to create an environment where everyone feels safe, respected, and empowered to bring their authentic selves to work. Our goal is to maintain a workplace that values individuality and embraces the richness of diverse perspectives, experiences, and identities.

Through our D&I education sessions, we will deepen our understanding of allyship, appreciating its role in creating an inclusive environment. Allyship goes beyond support; it is an active commitment to standing alongside our LGBTQ+ communities and amplifying their voices.

We firmly believe that knowledge and awareness are the catalysts for personal and organisational growth. By engaging in these education sessions, we can broaden our perspectives, challenge biases, and develop a greater understanding of the experiences and challenges faced by our friends and colleagues.

We encourage all members of the Portico family to join us in participating in these sessions and be part of the positive change we are collectively striving for.
