On Saturday 25th August we came together with our partners from across the construction industry, as part of the Building Equality float at this years Manchester Pride Parade.
In only the second year the construction industry has been represented in the parade, Building Equality rallied well over 100 representatives including architects, consultants, construction companies and developers to form the biggest show of equality, diversity and inclusion that the North West construction industry has ever seen.
It was a hugely positive day, with an amazing reception from the crowds along the route and sunny skies throughout. The importance of such occasions cannot be underestimated, and as well as helping to change perceptions of the construction industry, the event provided valuable opportunities to discuss LGBT+ issues facing our sector.
Keep a look out for future opportunities to get involved in next years float.
