Global financial services provider, Aegon has collaborated with Pride Photo to launch a month-long virtual photo exhibition for Aegon employees.

The Aegon exhibition features 80 winning pictures from the Pride Photo Award competition selected by employees from Aegon NV, Aegon UK and Transamerica. It launches on 11 October to mark National Coming Out Day around the world.

Pride Photo Award is an annual international photo contest for photos about sexual and gender diversity across the world.

Aegon employees will be able to visit the virtual gallery throughout October viewing the pictures and commenting on those they are most interested in. They can find out more about each photo by clicking on them.

Mike Holliday-Williams, CEO, Aegon UK comments:

“Aegon celebrates National Coming Out Day and supports Pride events every year so when the events were cancelled, the employee inclusion and diversity teams across the group came up with this virtual treat for Aegon employees worldwide.

“Art is a powerful tool and this collection gives powerful insight to the global differences and similarities when it comes to who you are and who you love. We hope this sparks conversation among our employees and continues to deliver the message to everyone at Aegon, that it’s okay to be your true self at work every day.”
