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.

Increase LGBTQ+ awareness and share best practices: 

  • Encourage member firms to join InterInvest and engage with it to benefit from and share learnings and best practices 
  • Partner with InterInvest and LGBT Great to leverage external resources to promote and amplify visibility and learning content 
  • Raise awareness of LGBTQ+ talent attraction and retention 
  • Events and webinars 


Encourage all members to complete an LGBTQ+ benchmark: 

  • Approx. 60% of members who reported on the tool in 2022 have completed an  LGBTQ+ benchmark 
  • Host an explainer webinar with members  about the different benchmarks available including the LGBT Great iiBT 
  • Share case studies 

– Encourage members to share experiences of completing a benchmark and the impact and value it brings
– Share best practices 

Continue to increase visibility: 

  • Encourage all members to have visible role models and allies through Project 1000 
  • Establish a baseline for firm/member engagement across DP members 
  • Host a role modelling dialog and leverage LGBT Great’s blueprint 
  • Increase social media activity to highlight LGBTQ+ events and activities, especially  those of InterInvest and LGBT Great

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."
