Emerald Connect

INTRODUCTION

As a community, it is important to keep abreast of what is happening in the LGBT world, both good and bad. As a company that places the LGBT community at the heart of everything we do, we wanted to create a place within our website where LGBT-relevant issues and Emerald's views could be reflected.

Emerald Connect is a great place to stay informed on topical LGBT-related news stories, current campaigns, matters surrounding insurance, seasonal events, the great work that our charity partners are doing and what is happening here at Emerald. We are passionate about delivering the most current and best-sourced information to our community and if there is anything else that you think we should cover, then simply sign up to receive our Emerald Connect newsletter and give us your feedback.

Emerald Connect shows top LGBT news stories, our global LGBT calendar of events, latest blog, Facebook posts and tweets all in one place.

You can navigate content in Emerald Connect via recent posts, category and sub-category. Read on...

Our Social Media Channels

As a company that encourages advocacy for LGBT equality, Emerald is keen to give its thoughts. While we encourage people to buy our insurance, we want to do that in a framework of generally working for LGBT rights, both here and abroad. Social media is a powerful tool, particularly in communities that are disparate or where it can be difficult to obtain information on LGBT issues through other media. We use social media in order to engage with the LGBT community, both our customers and those in the community at large. These dialogues are important for us and we hope you as well.

Follow us on Twitter and Like us on Facebook.

Blog

In our blog, we offer in-depth thoughts on LGBT-related matters, insurance challenges and, of course, insurance issues! We provide views from subject matter experts, the Emerald team, external advisers and consultants, our charity partners, and others with informed points of view. While the content may be summarised for our social media posts, our blog section is where we give you more in-depth coverage.
