Feeling comfortable and confident
At Nationwide we ensure our people are empowered to be themselves.
Our colleagues are sharing their stories and creating open discussions, enabling everyone to learn more about Pride and LGBTQ+ representation.
We spoke with Audit Director, Sally, who says she’d tell her younger self to ‘be open-minded and embrace the path that life takes you’.
When I ‘came out’ to my parents one of their main concerns was that it would damage my career, this was in 2019! The fact that I have a female partner has never presented any barriers or issues at Nationwide. It doesn’t define who I am, and I don’t think it has either held me back or boosted my career. It is just part of who I am and that is fully accepted”.
Our Proud Network and People & Culture community have worked hard over the last year with inclusion partners, colleagues and leaders across the Society to improve the support we give to LGBTQ+ employees and members. And we're proud to be ranked within the Top 100 Inclusive Employers by Stonewall.
