Our LGBT+, Youth, Black, Asian and minority ethnic, and womens’ networks

At Co-op, we’re proud. Proud of our diverse colleague community and proud of a workplace culture where people can flourish while always being their true, authentic selves.


Respect is our lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) network. More than 700 colleagues have joined.

Anyone who supports LGBT+ equality is welcome to join.

Aspire is a community of colleagues who believe that all women in Co-op have a right to equality. We support each other with our careers, we challenge others to support women in Co-op and we raise awareness of issues which affect women. All colleagues can be a part of this network.
