Honouring Pride Month
In honour of Pride Month, our teams across the globe supported a wide range of initiatives throughout June to celebrate Pride history and our LGBTQIA+ communities, and show their support for a diverse, varied, and open society.
Our shopping centres proudly sport Pride rainbows and solidarity messages, as well as hosted some great events to celebrate Pride Month! Westfield Donau Zentrum, for example, kicked off the month with an entertaining drag show including their ambassador Drag Queen, Tamara Mascara, at the mall. Hundreds of visitors attended the family-friendly performances to show their support. The destination also participated in the Pride parade in Vienna.
Our UK team hosted an event with @Freehold – a networking forum for LGBTQIA+ professionals working in the real estate sector – in partnership with humanitarian aid organization @Choose Love to raise awareness of its ongoing efforts to support LGBTQIA+ refugees.
Our US team hosted an in-Person Pride Socials and a Pride Lunch & Learn, including a fun Drag bingo night, focused on honouring and celebrating equality. A portion of the proceeds from the events were contributed to organisations supporting LGBTQIA+ communities.
The local ambassadors of our D&I programme – Be You at URW – raised awareness about LGBTQIA+ inclusion through Pride-themed activities and social events in the office. Our learning and development team also compiled playlists about fostering a better workplace culture in support of LGBTQIA+ inclusion.
At Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, we openly celebrate – in June and every month - diverse backgrounds and identities. Being proud of who you are so you feel safe to bring your best, most authentic self to work is at the heart of our Be You at URW promise. Be You and be proud!
