Customer Resolution Analyst Jordan explains how we celebrate diversity
"I’m so proud to work for a company willing to give its people the freedom and flexibility to set up something that they have a passion for."
Name: Jordan McGhee,
Job Title: Customer Resolution Analyst
The sun was high in the, ahem, sky, as thousands of people from all ages, races, faiths and sexual orientations assembled in bright colours outside our Scottish Parliament, for the annual Edinburgh Pride parade.
I’m in the Customer Resolution team and having worked here for just over nine years I’m lucky enough to have been a member of the LGBT network since it started in 2012 with just a small Chatter group. It’s been amazing to watch it grow and now I’m a network lead, meaning I organise different events across a lot of our sites to help promote the network.
I’m so proud to work for a company willing to give its people the freedom and flexibility to set up something that they have a passion for. Taking part in Pride events is such a huge moment and being able to join over 30 Sky staff and friends as part of a range of organisations, walking together with flags, banners, beach balls, whistles, face paints, unicorns, and everything else in-between, to celebrate diversity in our fabulous city is such an amazing feeling! We get such a phenomenal response as we’re such a huge, well-known brand and we love to show how inclusive and diverse it is.
For those of you who know Edinburgh, we walked from Parliament, along past the Cowgate, by our pal Greyfriars Bobby, then onto Teviot Row House. Here, we ran a stall, handing out rainbow face paints and whistles, all while speaking to over 650 people, promoting #LifeatSky. Loads of visitors told us they loved that a big company like us would get involved with this Pride event and they couldn’t get enough of our fabulous “Just Be” branded goodies.
