"Proud to be a part of Pride"

Mourant has partnered with Liberate to bring a splash of colour to the Channel Islands Pride parade this weekend.

The law firm is donating hundreds of handheld rainbow flags for participants to wave at the event.

"We're thrilled to be supporting CI Pride 2020 and to bring some additional colour to the weekend events with our donation of rainbow flags," said Mourant Guernsey Managing Partner, Matthew Guthrie. "Pride aligns itself with many of our own core values and is a fantastic opportunity to bring everyone together to celebrate diversity in our community.

"As a local employer in the Channel Islands, we're committed to nurturing an inclusive environment, where our people are able to bring their whole authentic selves to work every day and to be the best they can be. We're looking forward to joining the parade on Saturday and supporting inclusion across our whole community."

Holly Tardif of the firm's LGBTQ+ and Friends network has attended previous CI Pride events and is looking forward to the weekend's celebrations.

"I'm pleased that CI Pride is taking place this year, particularly in light of the challenging year our whole community has experienced," she said. "I'll be once again joining the parade with friends and Team Mourant colleagues, celebrating the inclusive culture that we are fortunate to live and work in. 

"At Mourant, we're always encouraged to be ourselves and taking part in Pride is a great way of nurturing an even wider culture of inclusivity and mutual respect across the community. If you come along, you can be sure to be welcomed with open arms and to experience something magical!"

All CI Pride events will free and inclusive to all members of the community.

"We're really excited that CI Pride is able to go ahead as planned this year and for the support of our corporate partners," added CEO of Liberate and Pride Director, Ellie Jones. "With this year's theme centralising around visibility, we're grateful to Mourant in enabling us to distribute hundreds of colourful Pride flags to our party participants as we all come together and visibly demonstrate with Team Mourant our solidarity and the beauty of diversity."
