THE BNP PARIBAS PRIDE NETWORK CELEBRATES WINTER PRIDE IN SUPPORT OF DIVERSITY ROLE MODELS AND GENDERED INTELLIGENCE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 


The BNP Paribas Pride Network hosted a fundraising Winter Party on 14 December for the newly-launched Diversity Role Models – a campaigning organisation that aims to tackle homophobia through education. The event took place at 5 Aldermanbury Square Offices on the 17th Floor. 

 

The event was attended by a large number of members of the group’s LGBT network and supporters of equality. BNP Paribas were delighted to be able to give support to Diversity Role Models as well as raise awareness for Gendered Intelligence – an arts-based programme to foster understanding of gender identity. 

Guests were charmed by the captivating Drew, one of the stars from the recent series on Channel Four 'My Transsexual Summer'.  Pippa Dale and Vinay Kapoor, the Network's co-chairs, both agreed 'hosting this event demonstrated BNP Paribas's commitment to diversity and continued support in helping worthwhile charities'."

 

The event itself was attended by well over 150 people and we had representatives from CIB, BP2S, Real Estate, a number of the other banks, law firms as well as our sponsored charities.  We were delighted to raise over £1,500 for Diversity Role Models, as well as a smaller figure for Gendered Intelligence.
