Why Pride Day is important to us
For the past 12 months, we have increased our efforts in prioritising diversity and inclusion across everything we do as an organisation.

Having kicked off last year with our hugely popular ‘Women on the Rise’ initiative, Pride London felt like a natural fit and a clear demonstration of our ongoing commitment to LGBT inclusion and diversity within Kin + Carta Create.
Throwback to 2018, on the Friday before Pride, we bought two of the biggest rainbow cakes from Hummingbird bakery and got everyone together to take a moment out of their day to enjoy some delicious cake and celebrate Pride Day. It was then that one of our developers, Kane Cheshire said to me, “Could we take part in the Pride in London Parade next year” and very soon after we decided to apply for Pride 2019.
