Making Specsavers history during LGBT History Month

February is LGBT History Month in the UK. It’s an annual celebration that provides education and insight into the issues that the LGBTQIA+ community faces and here at Specsavers, we’re making our own history by launching PRISM – our first-ever employee network that is for employees, and led by employees.


The PRISM network is here to empower LGBTQIA+ colleagues in stores and support offices to bring their full self to work through creating a positive and supportive working environment and will ensure the unique voice of LGBTQIA+ colleagues and their allies across the business is heard.

The network will create a space to ensure all colleagues support each other, our policies remain inclusive, all colleagues are aware of and educated on LGBTQIA+ topics and much more.

John Perkins, our CEO and senior sponsor of PRISM, said: “I was delighted to be asked to sponsor PRISM. Everybody is somebody in Specsavers and our LGBTQIA+ colleagues are an important part of our Specsavers family. I am proud to say I support PRISM”
