QBE Pride hosts Key Note Event

On the 25th July, our Pride committee celebrated Pride with a key note event ‘Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way’ in London, with a live stream across our Europe offices.

QBE were thrilled to have two guest speakers join them for the event. Theresa Farrenson, Customer Experience & Integration Lead at Aon and Secretary for their LGBT Insurance Network, who explained and broke down the Genderbread Person; helping the audience to understand gender and why it isn’t straight forward for all. This was followed by our main speaker, transgender racing car driver, Charlie Martin, who is on her way to becoming the first transgender driver to compete in the Le Mans 24 Hours. Having known she identified as female from as young as seven years-old, Charlie’s personal story of triumph over adversity shows just how hard she has fought for her beliefs.

The committee also announced that new ‘Gender Affirmation and Transition Guidelines’ have been published to support line managers who may have team members that are going through or considering going through the process of gender affirmation (transitioning).

Take a look at some of the event highlights below.
