Last week, on Wednesday 23 June our Unity Network we were delighted to host a virtual event for Close Brothers staff with Dame Inga Beale, a British businesswoman and the former CEO of Lloyd's of London.
Inga spoke about her career breaking glass ceilings and building inclusive environments within the workplace as a member of the LGBTQ+ community. She also answered questions from staff and discussed the importance of allyship and how we all have a role to play in creating an inclusive and diverse workplace.
Event feedback included:
"An outstanding session led by the Unity network. Dame Inga’s talk should be listened to by everyone, especially leaders and used as a blueprint for inclusion. Great to have Martyn Atkinson sponsor this great cause." Louise Hill, Close Brothers Group plc
"Such an inspirational talk about the realities of the journey. Thank you Dame Inga Beale and Close Brothers for elevating #pridemonth202." Elizabeth Martine, Close Brothers Asset Management
