Pride Network

Why networks matter?

Staff networks promote diversity and build a sense of community. They create a safe space for colleagues to support each other.

As an organisation our networks also provide us with an opportunity to gain insight from key groups of staff who may otherwise not have a strong voice in our leadership team. By celebrating our diversity and acknowledging the benefits of different perspectives provide strength to the organisation.


Our Pride Network

Our Pride network will provide peer-to-peer support, raise awareness on LGBTQ+ inclusion, advise on processes and policies to create a more inclusive environment at Iris Care Group.

The Pride Network will be key in fostering an environment where every individual, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or expression, feels empowered to bring their authentic selves to work. The Pride Network also encourages and recognises the importance of allies. Allyship involves being an advocate for the network groups even though they themselves may not necessarily directly identify with it.

The network will be employee led with two Co-Chairs and then general members. Each network will have an executive sponsor who will advocate for the network at a board and management level. The executive sponsor for the Pride Network is Michelle Cox-Coley.

You can download the structure and guide for the network here for more information.

If you’re passionate about our Pride Network, you can sign up by sending an email to our Wellbeing Officer at Rachel.macmillan@iriscaregroup.co.uk.
