Diversity Project Logo


The LGBTQ+ Workstream is an umbrella group made up of LGBT Great and InterInvest. Each organisation is operated and governed individually and works together in pursuit of three broad goals for the Diversity Project.


• Boost general awareness about the  LGBTQ+ community and its diverse identities 

• Persist in disseminating learnings and best practices to foster an inclusive environment 

• Raise awareness specifically about LGBTQ+ women, spotlighting their unique experiences and challenges 

Allyship and knowledge sharing: 

• Back the DP’s work on intersectional allyship, emphasising the interconnected nature of social categorisations such as race, class, and gender 

• Leverage best practice improvements, promoting the adoption of successful strategies and approaches across the board 

• Contribute towards highlighting the rewards of cognitive diversity 

Diversity data and benchmarking: 

• Encourage all members to complete benchmarking, providing a standard or point of reference against which things may be compared 

• Illuminate LGBTQ+ diversity and inclusion data, underscoring the importance of representation and equality in all sectors 

• Share value-add case studies of benchmarking, demonstrating the tangible benefits and improvements that can be achieved 

• Foster a culture of continuous improvement, where benchmarking is not a one-time task but an ongoing process of learning and development

Member Quotes

"Whilst there has been some progress for LGBT+ inclusion within the investment and savings industry here in the UK, visibility and representation still remain low. By working collaboratively, the Diversity Project’s workstream is providing access to safe spaces, building awareness, boosting visibility and creating and environment which is welcoming to the community. We look forward to continuing the progress now, and into the future."
