CarmichaelUK is supporting LGBT+ with Rainbow Laces

CarmichaelUK has been working closely with Stonewall over the past 3 years. From sponsoring events to training our staff to understand the challenges faced by the LGBTQ+ community. This is very important to us at CarmichaelUK as we want the construction industry to be a wholly inclusive place to work in.

We are proud supporters of Stonewall’s  Rainbow Laces campaign, which aims to bring people together through the power of sport. The teams across our office have been sporting their Rainbow Laces all week, take a look below:

DID YOU KNOW: 66 per cent of lesbian, gay, bi and trans people felt that there were problems with homophobia and transphobia in sport. This has acted as a barrier to LGBT people taking part.

If you want to take part in in the Rainbow Laces campaign, tweet photos of your Rainbow Laces on the 27th of November. Follow updates via the hashtag #RainbowLaces or on Stonewall’s social media accounts.
