We have adapted our recruitment procedures, educated our staff through training, and recently attended the New York and Newry Pride Parades. These are just some of the ways in which we demonstrate our commitment to supporting our LGBTQ+ community on a global scale.
In 2019 we launched our Pride Network. The network is a forum for communication and support which is committed to advancing diversity and inclusion. The network organizes LGBTQ+ events and activities throughout the year, including participation in annual Pride parades, educational blogs, videos, and quiz nights, with more creative ideas being generated each month.
The network also serves as a forum for communication, providing opportunities for LGBTQ+ employees to connect and share their experiences. The goal of this initiative is twofold: first, to ensure that First Derivative is an inclusive workplace where everyone can feel comfortable being themselves at all times; second, to create a more inclusive financial services industry.
