LGBT+ at Heidelberg Materials UK

LGBT+ at Heidelberg Materials

Our vision is for every employee to feel valued, empowered and accepted for who they are. Inclusion is not about viewing everyone as the same but respecting everyone is different.

We believe in the effectiveness of engaged and empowered employees, where everyone, whatever their background, gender, ethnicity or sexuality, has the opportunity to reach their full potential and contribute to the success of our business.

To help us achieve this we have launched our LGBT+ Network, which like NOW UK, is open to all employees; not just those from the LGBT+ community.

Led by a steering committee, the Network’s aims are to:

  • Provide a community space for LGBT+ people and their supporters to communicate, network and share their experiences.
  • Offer peer-to-peer support across the business through a network of LGBT+ champions.
  • Create training material to educate the broader business on LGBT+ issues.
  • Help steer the business strategy around LGBT+ inclusion and representation.
  • Foster relationships with supporting organisations.
  • Assist the Fairness, Inclusion and Respect (FIR) committee in positively changing business culture.

Members of our team also took part in the walking parade, wearing custom branded Pride clothing and hard hats.
