When we say “love is love”, we mean it 🏳️‍🌈

If you haven’t heard, Pride is a pretty big deal here at Revolut. From our signature Pride cards to advocacy for allyship among our teams, we really go above and beyond to show our LGBTQIA+ community that we love them for who they are.

Research conducted by the Diversity Council of Australia and RMIT University shows that just 32% of LGBTQIA+ employees in Australia are open about their identity in the workplace. We want to bring that number up — all the way up — for our amazing Revoluters so they can be as open as they choose. So we work hard to create an inclusive work environment where our colleagues feel confident bringing their whole selves to work.

Here, we give you an inside look at how we celebrate Pride at Revolut:

We give LGBTQIA+ Revoluters and their allies a seat at the table

Diversity is the heart we wear on our sleeves, so we’ve created a loving community — affectionately called our Pride Guild — that champions Revoluters’ right to an inclusive workplace. It’s a safe place for LGBTQIA+ Revoluters to share what’s on their minds, and a great place for allies to let them know they’re not alone in their fight to be themselves.

We raise awareness amongst Revoluters — regardless of gender and orientation

Pride, at its core, is about education. It’s incredibly important for us that everyone can come to work as they are. That’s why our brilliant Workplace Experience and Culture team put together resources that help all Revoluters learn about the challenges that the LGBTQIA+ community faces, as well as how they’d like to be supported or related to, and how teams can create stronger psychological safety overall.

We share our love of Pride with our customers

Nothing shows support more than commitment does, and that’s exactly what we did. We dedicated business hours, teams and resources towards projects that show our support for LGBTQIA+ communities globally. In Australia, we're working with Minus18 to give you an avenue to show your support:

With a $20 donation, you'll be helping Minus18 provide a young person with essential resources to better understand sexuality and gender identity. A $50 donation sends an LGBTQIA+ teen to the life-affirming Queer Formal for free, and $188 provides LGBTQIA+ education resources to an Aussie classroom. However large or small your donation though, it’ll be used to champion inclusivity, educate the community and support young people.

Love is love, and you can’t convince us otherwise. If you’re looking for a workplace that fully supports who you are, come and explore our open positions. We’d love to meet you. 🌈
