Embracing diversity is the essence of PRIDE Month

28 June 2024

June is PRIDE month and is the perfect time to talk about self-expression and the importance of inclusivity. Vanessa Sampson, Director of People & Culture at Locale, shares how Locale embraces diversity, now and in the future.

Every June, the world bursts into a vibrant celebration of love, acceptance, and the unapologetic expression of identity. PRIDE Month is not just a time for parades and rainbow flags; it’s a powerful reminder of the journey toward equality, the fight for rights, and the ongoing struggle against discrimination. At Locale, this celebration resonates deeply with our values and mission, reflecting our commitment to diversity, inclusivity, and community support.


The Heart of PRIDE: A Historical Reflection

PRIDE Month commemorates the Stonewall Riots of 1969, a pivotal moment in LGBTQ+ history that ignited the modern gay rights movement. This month is a tribute to those who fought bravely for recognition and equality, often in the face of immense adversity. It’s a time to honour their legacy by continuing to push for a world where everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity, is free to be themselves.


Locale’s Commitment to Inclusivity

At Locale, we recognise that a truly inclusive workplace is not just beneficial for those who identify as LGBTQ+, but for everyone. Our ethos revolves around creating a space where diversity is not just accepted but celebrated. This belief is rooted in our core values:

  1. Community building: Locale is dedicated to fostering communities that are supportive and inclusive. We understand that our work goes beyond providing digital solutions; it’s about enhancing the lives of those within our communities. By promoting inclusivity, we ensure that everyone feels valued and respected.
  2. Innovation through diversity: Diverse teams drive innovation. Different perspectives and experiences lead to creative solutions and new ideas. Locale thrives on this diversity, continually pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the realm of digital real estate management.
  3. Empathy and support: Understanding and empathy are at the core of Locale’s operations. We are committed to supporting our employees, clients, and partners in their unique journeys. This is reflected in our policies and practices that aim to create a safe and supportive environment for all.


Looking Forward: A vision for the future

PRIDE Month is a time for reflection, celebration, and recommitment to the cause of equality. At Locale, we envision a future where diversity is the norm, and inclusivity is ingrained in every aspect of society. We are dedicated to playing our part in making this vision a reality.

As we move forward, we pledge to continue advocating for LGBTQ+ rights, supporting our employees in their authentic expressions of identity, and using our platform to promote positive change. By aligning our actions with our values, we strive to create a world where everyone can live with pride, every single day.


PRIDE Month at Locale is a powerful testament to our unwavering commitment to diversity and inclusion. It’s a celebration of the progress made and a reminder of the work still to be done. Together, we stand with the LGBTQ+ community, not just in June, but throughout the year, championing the right to love, live, and thrive without fear or prejudice.
