Pride in Energy
Energy UK’s Pride in Energy network is a diversity forum and network for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT+) members of the energy industry and their allies. The Pride in Energy network was created in response to a need for an organisation to address LGBT+ issues in the energy industry. Despite representing 619,000 jobs, five percent of GDP and over two percent of all jobs in the UK the energy industry had fallen behind other equivalent industries in key indices such as the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index.
Energy UK and Pride in Energy will be hosting a series of meetings and events to further advance LGBT+ equality and diversity across the industry. Pride in Energy’s networking events will run in parallel with workshops whereby Energy UK’s members will have the opportunity to learn best practice and build it into their operations.
