Pride Network Group

Pride is Leonardo’s LGBTQ+ employee network, run by a group of LGBTQ+ employees (and allies) who have come together to support each other and their fellow employees.

The network holds regular meetings to provide advice and promote education and awareness of LGBTQ+ issues in the workplace, and works on broader inclusion objectives with the other Leonardo employee networks. Pride’s ultimate aim is to ensure that no one in Leonardo feels the need to hide who they are in order to fit in, regardless of their gender or sexual identity.

During 2024, Leonardo’s Pride network group is marking the following events:

  • LGBTQ+ History Month (February)
  • Trans Day of Visibility (31 March)
  • International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (17 May)
  • Pride Month (June)
  • International Non-Binary People’s Day (14 July)
  • National Inclusion Week (23-29 September)
  • International Lesbian Day (8 October)
