IL MANCHESTER UNITED E STONEWALL COLLABORANO PER L’INCLUSIONE LGBT +

Il Manchester United e l’ente benefico per la parità LGBT + Stonewall hanno stretto una nuova partnership per promuovere la diversità e l’inclusione.

La collaborazione si basa sulla campagna “All Red All Equal” della squadra della Premier League e la vedrà iscriversi al programma Diversity Champions di Stonewall, che aiuta i datori di lavoro a integrare l’inclusione LGBT + sul posto di lavoro. L’iniziativa consente inoltre alle organizzazioni di accedere a consulenze di esperti, formazione e risorse dedicate dell’ente di beneficenza a sostegno dell’inclusione.

Lo United ha affermato che la partnership includerà anche la partecipazione al programma Workplace Allies di Stonewall per aiutare i dipendenti non LGBT a trovare modi per sostenere e promuovere una cultura inclusiva.

We’re immensely proud of our relationship with Stonewall and delighted to be taking it to the next level with this strategic partnership. Diversity is a source of strength for Manchester United and ensuring a welcoming environment for LGBT+ employees and fans is a crucial part of that. We’re committed to making equality, diversity and inclusion integral to the way we work and this partnership with Stonewall will help us achieve that important goal, building on the range of other initiatives we have under way as part of our All Red All Equal campaign

Richard Arnold – Managing Director Manchester United

It’s so important for organisations to actively work towards making sport everyone’s game. Many LGBT+ people want to take part in sport, either as players or fans, but at the moment not everyone feels welcome. We also know that most sports fans want to see sports be better and more inclusive. To make this happen, we need individuals and organisations to step up to show their support for LGBT+ people and that’s what Manchester United has done today. We’re excited to continue our journey with them from being a founding member of TeamPride, to now joining us as a Diversity Champion. We look forward to working with them to help further LGBT+ equality in football

Nancy Kelley – CEO Stonewall

La partnership promuove il rapporto di United con Stonewall. I Red Devils sono diventati la prima squadra di calcio ad entrare a far parte della coalizione TeamPride di Stonewall nel 2017 e hanno anche sostenuto la campagna di beneficenza Rainbow Laces, creato un Pride Network interno per i dipendenti LGBT + e l’anno scorso ha lanciato il suo primo gruppo di sostenitori LGBT +, Rainbow Devils.
