BAG D&I Conversation VLOG: Pride 2022

June is Pride month - a month dedicated to celebrating LGBTQ+ communities all around the world. And this year, Pride is having a special celebration as it is 50 years old!

With this VLOG BAG held a discussion around what is pride, what it means to individuals and what thoughts we want to get across.

The British Aviation Group is committed to being a diverse and inclusive organisation, which reflects the communities and society in which we serve.  As such we have developed an Inclusion Calendar for 2022 where throughout the year, we will highlight selected topics and dates of interest to our members to take them with us on our Inclusion journey, sharing learning and knowledge with our members.

Listen to Tim Walder (BAG Deputy Chair and BAG D&I Advisory Group Member), Antoine Vergoz (BAG D&I Advisory Group Member) and our guest speaker Jason Buckland, Director - Head of Aviation Business Consultancy at Arcadis discuss all things Pride and LGBTQ+ in this insightful conversation!

This document focuses on two key topics:
- What’s happening at UK airports
- What’s happing in the International markets, particularly in the priority markets we set for this year in discussion with DIT. Based on what we learn should we be resetting those priorities or focussing on other opportunities
