"When I joined QBE, I did not accept my sexual identity. This changed shortly when I realised how much emphasis QBE places on LGBTIQ+ inclusion, particularly driven by the amazing QBE Pride Committee. I have been on the Committee since 2019 and am now the co-chair for 2021, and have been able to work on some awesome initiatives, assist with events/communications and contribute to a diverse and inclusive culture at QBE. Being part of the Committee has also helped me to accept and own my own identity and really thrive in the workplace."
Jacqui Damrow (current co-chair of QBE Pride)
