Seasalt announces partnership with Cornwall Pride

Seasalt Cornwall is pleased to announce a partnership with Cornwall Pride for 2024.

The charity is the biggest LGBTQ charity in Cornwall and holds its Falmouth Pride event in Seasalt’s hometown on April 27th.

The collaboration represents a union of shared objectives and aspirations for a more inclusive and sustainable Cornwall.

Seasalt Cornwall's dedication to ethical practices and community involvement mirrors what Cornwall Pride strives to achieve – creating a welcoming environment where every individual, irrespective of their background, feels valued, heard, and celebrated.

Amy Thom, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Sponsor for Inclusion at Seasalt says, “Cornwall Pride is a vibrant event that supports marginalised and underrepresented communities in Cornwall, and we’re delighted to be an official sponsor this year. We’re proud to be pushing for greater inclusion and equality in the workplace and want our employees and customers to feel comfortable expressing who they are at all times.

These are values that we commit to as an organisation all year round but hope this partnership shows true allyship for the great work Cornwall Pride does, and a clear message that we welcome and treat everyone all equally at Seasalt.”

Seasalt promotes an inclusive culture company-wide and is proud to have a strong LGBTQ employee community.

As an organisation, it looks to create impactful initiatives that support LGBTQ employees and a welcoming environment where every employee feels supported and valued.

This has included an inclusive uniform policy, pronouns on email signatures and a thriving network of Inclusion Reps and Outreach Ambassadors that create immersive experiences to drive positive change throughout the business and communities.

It will also be rolling out pronoun badges across its retail stores nationwide later this month.

Matthew Kenworthy Gomes, Chief Executive Officer, Pride Cornwall says, “I am truly thrilled to announce our partnership with Seasalt Cornwall for the upcoming Falmouth Pride event and for Cornwall Pride. Seasalt Cornwall, with its strong Cornish heritage and commitment to sustainable and community-focused values, is the perfect match for the ethos of Cornwall Pride.

This partnership represents a shared vision of inclusivity, diversity, and environmental responsibility, reflecting the spirit of Cornwall's vibrant communities. I’m deeply grateful to Seasalt for their commitment to making Cornwall a place where diversity is not just accepted, but celebrated, and inclusivity is the standard.”
