Looking back on an incredible summer for B United

Looking back on an incredible summer for B United

09 October 2019

As the headline says, summer 2019 was a hugely successful one for our lesbian, gay, bi, and trans (LGBT+) employee network, B United.

We told you in June how B United was going from strength to strength as it celebrated its first anniversary since being rebranded from its predecessor, Lucky Tribe. Since then, the network’s members and allies have been busy spreading the word about diversity and inclusion at BAT.

In July we lit up our London headquarters in rainbow colours and flew a rainbow flag to celebrate Pride month. This was followed by B United members attending Pride parades in London and Mexico – for the first time ever under the B United banner. Our short video above recaps on these events and more, as well as giving a general overview of the great work that B United does all year round.

As B United President, Damian De Conno, says in the video: “At B United we want to make sure that everyone who works for BAT is able to openly and honestly be themselves. When you walk into a BAT office, you should feel as proud about yourself as you do about working for BAT. It’s about making BAT the best place to work.”
