Today, diversity is highly valued because it strengthens social groups. The Investment Association (IA) is committed to making workplaces more inclusive to ensure that LGBTQ+ employees feel welcome, valued and supported. The association also plays a key role in helping companies reach LGBTQ+ talent and build their reputations as LGBTQ+ inclusive employers.
The Client – The Investment Association
The IA is the trade body that represents UK investment managers. Its 250 members collectively manage £10 trillion of assets on behalf of clients in the UK and around the world. Importantly, the IA has demonstrated long-standing support, and encouraged member support, for the LGBTQ+ community, especially LGBTQ+ professionals in the investment industry.
Promoting Pride on Company Email Signatures
One simple way in which the IA has highlighted its support for the LGBTQ+ community has been to convert its logo in its company email signatures into the Pride colours for the duration of Pride month as shown below.
With the Pride coloured logo easily updated on all company email signatures simultaneously using Rocketseed, the new-look email signatures were applied to all the IA’s internal and external emails.
When you consider the huge number of emails the IA sends in a month, adding Pride colours to email signatures delivers real reach and exposure, making a clear statement of LGBTQ+ support, creating a sense of inclusion, and encouraging all email recipients to do the same.
The Investment Association says…
“Showing our support for the LGBTQ+ community during Pride month is a small way in which the IA can show that everyone matters, and that inclusion is key. Updating our logo to Pride colours on our email signatures company-wide was incredibly easy with Rocketseed.”

From Pride colours to gender pronouns and name pronunciation, company email signatures are an ideal way to promote diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in the workplace and beyond.
