What does Pride mean to you?

Equality, Representation, and Inclusion is at the heart of the Limitless business. In fact, it’s a major part of our GoodGig® Principles. We believe that everyone, regardless of age, faith, ability, race, gender or sexuality is free to be themselves all the time and have equal opportunity when joining Limitless to become an Expert.

Pride Month is so important to us because we are passionate about appreciating the LGBTQ+ community and diversity, remembering the progress that has been made on LGBTQ+ rights, and celebrating love in all its forms.

But what does Pride mean to you? This is the question we asked all the Limitless team and here’s some of the amazing answers we got!

Pride to me means equal opportunity for everyone. The opportunity for everyone to love who they want to without having to worry about any further repercussions. It also means being able to be who you are, and live in a world which is accepting of everyone 🙂

Pride to me is all about being joyful and celebrating everyone’s differences. It means encouraging everyone to be the same person on the outside as they are on the inside and in doing so amplify the positive and stamp out the negative behaviours we see in society.

The ability to be who and love who you want.

To be yourself without feeling ashamed or discriminated against.

Pride for me means the recognition of who we are, it’s the strength that makes us fight for respect and justice to acknowledge our differences for the most wonderful life, purpose, and love.

Pride for me is a celebration of inclusivity and freedom of expression. It’s about seeing everyone equally and letting others know it’s ok to be yourself. Be proud of who you are, celebrate it.

Pride is not being shamed, equality, respect and dignity for all.

To have respect for those that fought so hard for so long just to be themselves.

Pride to me means acknowledging, supporting, celebrating, and honouring all of my wonderful LQBTQ+ friends and family and appreciate them for enriching my life, our society and culture in immeasurably positive ways. It also means raising awareness of the LGBTQ+ community and how it’s evolving and navigating issues and injustices globally as well as educating others about the community, signing petitions and donating to important causes that support the community year-round.

Pride is the feeling you have when you are acknowledged or recognized by the community you are in. Whether it be work, church, family, friends. To be accepted, given a chance, embraced and just all out encouraged to be you. Pride Is Love. Pride Is Hope. Pride Is Limitless.

To be accepted for who you are and not be ashamed of it. Free to be open about what you think, stand for and want to be.

The main themes we identified from the responses are respect, freedom, and a celebration of our differences rather than a desire for us all to be the same. This is a great reminder of guiding principles for working with our clients, Experts, and our own team members.

Equality, Representation, and Inclusion is a journey and something that is continually progressed, as opposed to a superficial box to tick. At Limitless, we’re working on a clear Culture Framework that allows us to engage our teams regularly about Equality, Representation and Inclusion and empower them to be their best selves in and out of work.

We asked our team what Pride means to them in one word – here’s a selection of some of our favourite answers (feat. Robyn the Dog) celebrating what they believe Pride to be. Enjoy!
