Pride networking

Join us for our first Pride Networking event, bringing together the LGBTQIA+ community working at Milton Park. This is an opportunity to connect, share experiences and celebrate diversity in our professional environment.

The event will begin with two inspiring talks by LGBTQIA+ community members from Milton Park, sharing their stories and insights. These short talks aim to foster a sense of belonging and provide a platform for voices within our community.

After the talks, you will have the opportunity to network; meet like-minded individuals, build relationships and expand your professional network within the LGBTQIA+ community at Milton Park.

Whether you’re an employee, entrepreneur or simply part of the Milton Park ecosystem, this event is open to all who identify as LGBTQIA+ or allies. Come and be a part of this inclusive gathering, celebrating our diverse identities and fostering a supportive community.

This event is organised by a new committee made up of individuals from various companies on the Park, dedicated to fostering greater interactions and supporting LGBTQIA+ people working here and sponsored by MEPC Milton Park.
