Beyond The Rainbow

A look back on our REVOLT PRESENTS webinar, where we discussed taking 360 action with Pride

With so much focus on business and brand’s response to the most recent BLM protests it could be easy for another important fight for diversity and inclusion to get less air time.

But whilst Pride Month has had to be re-imagined in the light of this and COVID-19, it has certainly not been forgotten.

For those who attended our webinar last week: “Moving from awareness to action with Pride” we want to thank you for spending your evening with us.

It was great to see so many people tune in to hear our fantastic panel of business leaders and activists discuss what action looks like for the LGBTQ+ community, 365 days a year.

As Charlie Craggs said, ‘you can’t enjoy the rainbow without going through the rain with us’.

Our panelists included:

  • Michele Oliver, Trustee of Stonewall and Global VP of Corporate Brand & Purpose, Mars Incorporated
  • Yasmin Benoit, asexual activist and Founder of #thisiswhatasexuallookslike
  • Ben Wilson, Sexual Wellbeing Director, Reckitt Benckiser
  • Rob Berkeley MBE, Founder and Managing Editor at BlkOutUK.com
  • Charlie Craggs, trans activist, Founder of Nail Transphobia and author of To My Trans Sisters

If you missed it, you can watch a recording of the webinar on our Tools page, or directly here.

And if you’d like to understand more about how the movement has grown and what might lie ahead for brand’s role in Pride, our Field Report can be downloaded here.

Look out for future webinars in the Revolt Presents series. And in the meantime, take care.
