YouthSight's Managing Director of Insight, Josephine Hansom, has become a steering committee member for the Market Research Society's MRSpride 🌈
MRSpride is an initiative established to connect LGBTQ+ professionals and allies across the research sector. It's free to join for any MRS members, staff of Company Partners and anyone working within the research, insight and analytics sector. It aims to unite us as an industry and drive greater visibility of the LGBTQ+ community.
And who better to talk about the work of MRSpride than Josephine herself. We caught up with Josephine, who told us: "We didn't get to march, parade or dance this year, but 2020 will be remembered by many as the year of the ally - such an amazing thing to happen during an extremely difficult year.
"Coming out isn't easy. As a MRSpride steering committee member I'm committed to being visible and to helping young researchers have the courage to have 'that' conversation with the new people they meet - to not fear the reaction of new colleagues, new employers, or new clients.
"Who you love shouldn't matter at work. Be kind and let others open-up."
