TalentWeb is thrilled to announce a partnership with BuildingPride to sponsor a pioneering initiative that will elevate and connect LGBT+ talent in the Australian engineering, property and construction industry.
BuildingPride’s purpose-built mentoring program, Champion, is designed to create a space for LGBT+ people to thrive by facilitating two-way learning between mentor and mentee and promoting engagement between LGBT+ communities and allies.
As a socially progressive and culture-focused recruitment firm, TalentWeb aligns closely with the values that drive the Champion program and is fully committed to supporting BuildingPride’s mission to create real change for LGBT+ people in engineering, property and construction.
“I'm incredibly excited to support the team at BuildingPride and all of the fantastic work they do to strive for equality and develop LGBT+ talent for the future,” says TalentWeb CEO Colin Fannon.
Matt King, Principal Consultant at TalentWeb, reveals that the initiative is close to his heart, and he looks forward to seeing the impact that industry-based mentoring will have on both LGBT+ communities and the inclusiveness of the wider market.
“I have worked in the engineering and built environment sector for years and know what it’s like to be conscious of bringing your entire self to work,” he says.
“The Champion program will be instrumental in creating a greater sense of belonging for LGBT+ people in the property and construction industry and enabling them to be their best. I’m honoured to be a part of it.”
BuildingPride is set to begin matching mentors and mentees for the first Champion mentoring program in July.
