As one of the UK’s most diverse and inclusive LGBT friendly companies, we are extremely proud to be sponsoring the Natwest British LGBT Awards for the second year running.
At Signature Living, we have always been vocal and passionate supporters of the LGBT+ community and I personally cannot wait to be a part of this amazing event again.
From the boardroom down to the shop floor, Signature Living is all about diversity. We embrace everyone and proudly celebrate the vibrant and diverse nature of our employees and hotel guests.
Katie and I are pleased to reaffirm our commitment to the LGBT+ community by backing such an important and exciting event.
The ceremony, held in London on 11th May, will celebrate individuals and organisations who work hard to advance the rights of the LGBT communities, acknowledging milestones in politics, media, grassroots activism and the corporate world.
We have an amazing track record of backing diverse events, Signature Living also sponsored the awards in 2017 and in the same year we supported Liverpool Pride, displaying rainbow flags across all of our sites to demonstrate our strong commitment to LGBT+ rights and equality.
Managing Director of Signature Living, Kris Mochrie has also shared my enthusiasm for the upcoming ceremony: “It is a pleasure to lead an organisation where our people are encouraged and supported to be themselves. Our decision to support initiatives like the British LGBT Awards is a recognition of our LGBT+ employees.”
The LGBT Awards founder, Sarah Garrett MBE supported this view, adding: “Signature Living’s passionate show of support for the LGBT community is commendable.”
This year, the star-studded event will be hosted by former Spice Girl, Mel B and Blue singer Duncan James. The night promises to be one of the highlights of the year, with amazing nominees including supermodel and actress Cara Delevigne, Merseyside’s own Paul O’Grady and actor Colton Haynes topping the celebrities category.
Plus, nominees for the MI5 Outstanding Contributions to LGBT+ Life, include Co-founder and Executive Director of UK Black Pride, Phyll Opoku-Gyimah and Bisexual Campaigner Lewis Oakley.
Marjorie Strachan, head of inclusion at NatWest, said: “The awards aren’t just for celebrities, they also champion those who work regular jobs but put in an extraordinary effort in helping LGBT+ people.”
Katie and I can’t wait to attend this hugely important event and help to fund LGBT charity work, organisations and awareness groups.
A Proudly Diverse Company
Working in partnership with so many UK employees to help diversify the workplace, the British LGBT Awards and Signature Living careers are proud to offer job opportunities that do not discriminate.
We believe in tolerance and acceptance, always endeavouring to understand the importance of equality, inclusion and the impact it has, both within the company and the communities in which we operate.
Last year I was hugely proud to win the European Diversity Award, an outstanding honour that recognises individuals and organisations who have made an outstanding contribution to equality, diversity and inclusion across Europe.
We have supported major diversity events because talent comes in all forms and embracing this fact will only help our company to thrive in the future.
