The team at Bevan Brittan in Bristol are gearing up for their involvement in this year’s Bristol Pride 2022 to show their support and allow this great event to take place between 25 June-11 July.
As part of the firm’s commitment to the LGBT+ community, members of the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (ED&I) committee, along with wider colleagues, family and friends, will take to the streets and proudly join the Bristol Pride Day March on 9 July, along with thousands of others, to support and celebrate LGBT+ lives and rights – marking the 50th anniversary of Pride marches in the UK.
To allow this renowned not-for-profit event to happen, Bevan Brittan is proud to sponsor the Bristol Pride Comedy Night on 5 July, a big highlight in the two-week calendar full of promising acts in the comedy circuit.
The ED&I committee, boasting over 50 ambassadors, forms an important part of Bevan Brittan’s culture by celebrating and reflecting on the diversity of experience within the firm. Together, they are building a culture of inclusion, increasing understanding and breaking down barriers to inequality.
Joanne Easterbrook, Partner, Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Lead at Bevan Brittan, commented: “Bevan Brittan is committed to equality and sees diversity and inclusion as an important part of developing a successful business for our clients, our colleagues and our communities. We are proud of having an environment in which everyone feels comfortable being themselves and our commitment to Bristol Pride 2022 truly reflects and endorses our thinking.”
Nikita Pierpoint, Trainee Solicitor and ED&I committee member at Bevan Brittan, added: “I’m part of the newly formed LGBT+ committee and excited to be part of a group of individuals who have lots of energy and great ideas, but who also consider the serious side of the LGBT+ community which can often be overlooked. Individually many of us have supported Bristol Pride over the years but coming together collectively this year feels like a really powerful commitment towards the LGBT+ community. We are thrilled to be involved and can’t wait to celebrate people from all backgrounds, regardless of background, race, gender, sexuality or disability.”
