"I was afraid to come out at work because I feared I would not be accepted. I thought coming out might affect my career prospects and would change the way my managers and colleagues thought of me.
Since coming out to my colleagues I have been amazed at how supportive and encouraging they have been. Now I feel free and proud of who I am, my confidence has increased and I have become a happy person at work again!
I am really proud that Arcadis promotes an inclusive workplace and for me it was particularly important to see their support for Pride. It gave me the courage to shed my camouflage (which I later knew was not much of a disguise anyway!) and felt the confidence to say: Yes, I am a member of the LGBT+ without any fear."
