Equality, Diversity and Inclusion is really important at United Utilities and we are so proud to have a safe working environment that welcomes and celebrates everybody for who they are. We have recently been ranked 7th in The Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers List 2021/22. As the leading water and wastewater provider for the North West we want our people to reflect the communities we serve. We pride ourselves on attracting diverse employees to come and work for us. We’d love for you to come along to our event to learn all about what we do in your community and what jobs are available to you when the time is right. We want you all to be a part of the big changes we are making to ensure everybody feels included, valued and comfortable to be their whole selves.

What is this event all about?

It’s set to be an awe-inspiring virtual session which will open the eyes of everyone attending! This session is focused around celebrating PRIDE that takes place throughout June and we’d love for you and your classmates to celebrate with us as part of the annual, month-long celebration for and about the LGBTQ+ community.

Hear from UU’s LGBTQ+ Together network

Here at UU we welcome all employees who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans. The LGBTQ+ Together employee network provides both a social and supportive forum, where members discuss issues that might be affecting them. Members from the network will join the virtual session to celebrate PRIDE and to talk about how they’re leading the way to creating an environment at UU where people feel they’re able to bring their whole selves to work, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. 

Inspiring great careers, every day

Join us in this safe and supportive online space for open conversations that will allow you the opportunity to ask questions around what it’s like to be an LGBTQ+ employee at a diverse and inclusive company like United Utilities. 

 

This session is the final in a series of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion sessions being held by UU, others sessions available to celebrate Black History Month on 21st October, National Disabilities Month on 7th December 2022 and International Women’s Day 6th March 2023. Why not sign up to them all now!
