At Manchester Pride, we believe everyone deserves to be their true self, all day every day. That's why we're encouraging workplaces to join the modern Pride movement, advocate for LGBTQ+ people and work towards an equal world for all.
Investing in equality, diversity and inclusion is not only good for people, it's good for business. Vibrant workplaces help businesses to attract the very best talent and retain them. Diverse and inclusive workforces are the key to driving innovation and creativity; multiple voices lead to brilliant, new ideas which could be vital in navigating unsettled economic times.

The All Equals Charter is a positive space for businesses and organisations to grow and learn. Supported by Manchester Pride’s expert team, Charter members have access to specialist knowledge to develop and adapt everything from policies and procedures, to training and education offered to their workforce.
