Our pillars are the teams working behind the scenes to turn our vision into a reality. These pillars align with our mission-vision to build industry-leading standards for the LGBT+ community while providing learning and development opportunities for queer professionals and driving cause-oriented initiatives relevant to our community. In the spirit of collaboration and volunteerism, they are led by a lead and co-lead from our member companies.
The Standards Pillar is a key component of the D&I strategy, which focuses on creating a diverse and inclusive workforce representative of the community we advocate for. They focus on best practices in policies and benefits in support of LGBT+ individuals, community consultative work on D&I practices, and the creation of guides and guidelines to support member companies on their journey to LGBT+ inclusion in the workplace.
The Leadership Pillar is in charge of building programs focused on developing LGBT+ talents to build competencies based on the PFIP Leadership Development Framework. They manage and deliver the SOGIE & Business of Inclusion Module of PFIP and continuously build & certify SOGIE trainers to support our member companies.
The Advocacy Pillar focuses on building a sustainable corporate social responsibility program for PFIP, aligned with the PFIP H.E.L.P.S. framework. They discover, connect, and maintain a list of vetted LGBT+ organizations that can be tapped and supported by PFIP member firms.
The Engagement Pillar primarily develops programs to continuously engage member companies through different socio-civic activities and events that are relevant and impactful. They also develop strategies to attract new member companies—both local and multinational.
The Communications Enablement Function Pillar guides the communication strategy and content and supports the creation of position papers or public statements if the need arises.
The Special Projects Pillar is in charge of planning for the annual Pride Summit and the PFIP Anniversary Gala as well as the Philippine BAHAGHARI Awards, from their theme and concept to logistics and other preparations.
