Our Spectrum network is an inclusive employee diversity network open to all colleagues regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, who are interested in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. The Spectrum vision is to drive LGBT inclusion at Barclays and make us the bank of choice for colleagues, customers and clients. Our focus is on supporting LGBT people within Barclays, so that they can make a valuable contribution to the overall success of our organisation. We strive to leave, as a lasting legacy, a bank that is more inclusive and better equipped to support colleagues, customers and clients in an increasingly diverse global marketplace.
Spectrum Allies are colleagues who are committed to ensuring that Barclays offers LGBT employees a respectful environment. Our allies support the LGBT community in challenging homophobia, biphobia and transphobia, and by educating others on the importance of equality. By staying informed and vocally supporting equality, allies help to make their LGBT colleagues, friends and family feel safer and more comfortable in leading their lives.
