The Bank of Bermuda Foundation said it “fully supports the upcoming Bermuda Pride 2019 parade as it raises awareness of the human rights issues affecting the LGBTQI+ community in Bermuda.”

A spokesperson said, “The Foundation’s long-term vision for Bermuda is that ‘All people in Bermuda are healthy, independent, financially secure and connected to community with equitable opportunities.’

“Bank of Bermuda Foundation believes in the basic human rights of every individual: the shared values of dignity, fairness, equality, and respect.

“In keeping with our vision, the Foundation openly and fully supports the upcoming Bermuda Pride 2019 parade as it raises awareness of the human rights issues affecting the LGBTQI+ community in Bermuda. The Foundation recognizes it has an important role to play by embracing advocacy work and utilizing our platform to bridge the many divides within our community.

“By advocating for those affected by injustice and inequality, the Foundation’s goal is to help heal, improve and uplift the Bermuda community to be a dynamic and fair-minded place to live and grow.

“To achieve this, the Foundation developed a Theory of Change [ToC]. The ToC provides the definition of the steps required to take the organization from vision to action.”

Allison Towlson, Managing Director of the Foundation added, ‘Our Theory of Change is clear in that we support ‘all’ individuals in the community. The Foundation recognizes the enormous social and economic responsibility it has, as an endowment fund, to contribute to the fabric of Bermuda’s society in a holistic way.

“For the Foundation, it’s about advocating for the rights of others, including the LGBTQI+ community, and wherever we see a segment of the population marginalized; whether economically, educationally or through access to quality healthcare. We have a responsibility to raise awareness and work to bring the community together from all walks of life.’

“The Foundation’s Theory of Change is available online for the community to explore, in depth, the processes and procedures that are essential to accomplishing the Foundation’s intended outcomes for the community. Visit here.”
