Company takes part in Bristol Pride festival to show its support for inclusion and diversity
HANSON have given a ready-mixed concrete mixer and an aggregates tipper truck a colourful makeover to mark the 50th anniversary of Pride marches in the UK and show their support for the LGBT+ community.
The vehicles can be spotted making deliveries across the Bristol area and were also part of the company’s presence at the Bristol Pride festival held on The Downs in the city on 9 July.
Members of the Hanson team also took part in the walking parade, wearing customized Hanson-branded Pride clothing and hard hats.
‘Last year we established our LGBT+ Network, the latest initiative aimed at making everyone in our business feel valued, empowered, and accepted,’ said international master data manager Amy Hillier, who chairs the LGBT+ Network.
‘The network is open to all employees, not just those from the LGBT+ community, and it was great to see so many people involved in the Bristol Pride event and show their support for inclusion and diversity.’
Hanson are also the first building materials supplier to become a member of Building Equality, which aims to build a more inclusive construction industry through collaboration, support, and promotion.
