Sexual Orientation - BeProud@Cpl

In 2017, with the help of The Gay and Lesbian Equality Network, Cpl established the BeProud@Cpl LGBTQ+ Network. We were the first recruitment agency in Ireland to invest in an LGBTQ+ community and we actively promote LGBTQ+ inclusion at work, and outside of work.

The aim of BeProud is to build an inclusive and safe network that empowers self-belief and confidence, where everyone can bring their whole selves to work. We do this through confidential personal and professional support, collaborating and developing strong relationships with other LGBTQ+ networks and actively driving conversations on crucial LGBTQ issues internally and on our digital platforms.


Cpl is one of the founding members of the Open Doors Initiative which aims to provide job opportunities to some of the most marginalised members of our society including people with a disability.

12.02% of our employees have a disability and we’re passionate about promoting abilities, rather than limitations including an annual celebration of International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

Our consultants work with Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities to provide career support and we are happy to have hired two people full time from this program.
