Pride and WWF-UK

You might notice something different about our Panda... It’s Pride Month and we’re celebrating our LGBTQ+ colleagues, supporters and friends.

Why is WWF supporting Pride?  

We believe in a world where nature and people can thrive together.  

That’s why we’re using our platform to support the LGBTQ+ community for Pride Month. For our LGBTQ+ colleagues, supporters and friends fighting for our world.  

To tackle the biggest challenges our planet faces, we need to include everyone. 

Everyone should be included in the fight for our world, our one shared home

"With Pride Month beginning today, I wanted to reflect briefly on what is such an important time of year for WWF’s LGBTQ+ colleagues, supporters and friends.

"Pride Month is about equality, visibility and community. It reflects on our LGBTQ+ history, but also on the very real issues that still affect the community today.

"WWF works for a future where people and nature can thrive together; supporting the LGBTQ+ community is very much a part of that mission. Everyone should be included in the fight for our world, our one shared home – more than that, we will not win that fight unless everyone is part of it.

"So this is an important month – but of course organisations need to do more to be inclusive every month – every week, every day – of the year. WWF is absolutely committed to doing so.

I wish all of our LGBTQ+ colleagues, supporters and friends a very Happy Pride 2021."

- Tanya Steele, Chief Executive

What is WWF doing to support the LGBTQ+ community? 

We’re committed to creating an inclusive workplace where everyone can feel free to be themselves.  

Pride is such an important month that we will continue to support every year, but we recognise that we need to do more for the LGBTQ+ community. Alongside our Diversity and Inclusion Champions, we’re working with our LGBTQ+ colleagues to set up an LGBTQ+ network and take more steps to be consciously inclusive every day of the year.  

If you’d like to share your experience or feedback with us, we’d love to hear from you. Email us on supportercare@wwf.org.uk
