Ogier sponsors live streaming of Channel Islands Pride

As part of Ogier's commitment to diversity and inclusion both in the workplace and in the wider community, the firm is proud to sponsor Channel Islands Pride 2021.

Ogier's sponsorship will help enable Pride to be streamed online so that islanders can join in the celebrations in a COVID-safe way.

Since the Islands' first Pride in 2015, the annual event has continued to advocate for equality for the LGBTQ+ community and other marginalised groups, both in the Channel Islands and internationally.

Global managing partner and sponsor of Ogier's diversity and inclusion initiative Edward Mackereth said: "We're proud to stand alongside our LGBTQ+ colleagues and the wider LGBTQ+ community with the sponsorship of Channel Islands Pride in this COVID-safe format, so that islanders can still participate in this important event."

Group diversity and inclusion project manager Sarah Murray said: "We enjoyed a busy Pride month including various awareness initiatives, training and celebrations but our commitment to inclusion of LGBTQ+ people at Ogier is continuous. Sponsorship of Pride is just part of this commitment and demonstrates to the community how we live our values. Pride is an empowering time to celebrate the progress we've made and to raise awareness of how far we still have to go for LGBTQ+ equality. We're proud to support this and look forward to being part of the day."
