Introduction

Vision Ireland is delighted to support and celebrate with our LGBTQIA+ colleagues and friends around Ireland this Pride month. Supporting this brilliant cause is incredibly important to Vision Ireland as we understand and champion the importance of individuality among our service users, staff and the wider communities that they are involved in.

Vision Ireland’s support of Pride and inclusivity

Vision Ireland recognises that our service users and staff come from diverse backgrounds, with varying experiences and needs. We are committed to ensuring that gender equality, diversity and inclusion are embedded into our day-to-day working practices. We actively promote fairness, respect, gender equality, diversity, inclusion, and engagement but recognise it is a journey and we are committed to continuous improvement.

Vision Ireland Retail

Vision Ireland Retail’s 130+ stores around Ireland will be heavily involved in Pride visibility over the course of the month of June. Many of our stores will display Pride window displays in a show of solidarity with the LGBTQIA+ members of the local communities in which our stores are based. The message behind our window displays are simple: everyone is welcome, everyone is equal, and everyone is entitled to express themselves and live their lives in whichever way they see fit.
