Diversity and Inclusion Manager (Volunteer role)

About Pride in London

Pride in London is wholly run by a group of volunteers who are passionate about equality and diversity. We are a not-for-profit organisation, and any surplus funds we raise are used to support the LGBT+ community and improve the event.

Together, we run the UK’s biggest, most diverse pride, and our job is to make sure we provide a platform for every part of London’s LGBT+ community to raise awareness of LGBT+ issues and campaign for the freedoms that will allow them to live their lives on a genuinely equal footing. 

Pride in London includes people of every race and faith, whether disabled or able-bodied, and all sexualities and genders including lesbian, gay, bisexual, asexual, queer, questioning, intersex, trans*, genderqueer, gender variant or non-binary as well as straight and cis allies. 

Around 250 people volunteer year-round to help us deliver what has become a world-class Pride.  It is our intention for Pride in London to best represent all parts of our community and we’ll do this by welcoming more women and those from the BAME, trans and non-binary communities into the organisation. All applications are important to us so if you’d like to be part of the future of Pride in London please register your interest or share this opportunity with your network. 

Your new volunteer role

Your day to day responsibilities will include:

  • Track and analyse diversity monitoring data 
  • Advise and support other teams on external/internal D&I actions

  • Create internal resources library and work with volunteer engagement team members to promote our D&I work

Our Culture

Our volunteers are driven and passionate about what they do. Putting on one of London's largest one-day events requires dedication and perseverance. 

Although a lot of our work is completed remotely, there will be plenty of opportunities to meet with your team and others throughout the year to not only plan what's ahead but to socialise too. 

We're looking for enthusiastic people to join the organisation so we can provide a platform for every part of London’s LGBT+ community.
