Our commitment to Pride and the LGBTQ+ community
For more than 250 years, the RA has been founded on the principles of freedom of expression, independent thinking and mutual respect. Pride represents and champions those same values, celebrating diversity and progress, and continuing the journey towards a more equal and inclusive society.
We are committed to providing an inclusive, welcoming environment for everyone at the RA.
We will be better allies by understanding and challenging our own biases, making a commitment to continuous learning, and actively celebrating diversity.
- The LGBTQ+ Affinity Group was formed by RA staff in June 2022.
- We have offered unconscious bias, bystander, and LGBTQ+ awareness training to all RA staff.
- In June 2023, RA staff celebrated Pride with an internal programme of events and a display of artwork by staff celebrating Pride and our LGBTQ+ community.
