QBE European Operations marks Bi Visibility Day with funding

 September 23, 2021

QBE European Operations supported the City of London Lord Mayor's Appeal City Giving Day - raising awareness for Bi Visibility Day that annually celebrates bi people, the bi community, and the history of bisexuality - through providing funding for LBGT+ outreach programmes in London and Manchester via LGBT+ mental health charity, Rainbow Mind.

The Lord Mayor's Appeal works with charities and businesses to create a better city for all, one that is inclusive, healthy, skilled and fair. City Giving Day is an impactful initiative that enables City of London companies and employees to celebrate and showcase their philanthropic and volunteering achievements and encourage others to get involved. 

Every year City Giving Day celebrates the value of the City to society and shows how businesses can make a difference, as part of a bid to create a fair society. It champions activities - whether corporate social responsibility, philanthropy, or volunteering initiatives - that companies undertake to support charity, society, the community and the environment in which they work.
