People we like to support
Global Butterflies often collaborates with other organisations and individuals to bring trans & non-binary issues to the surface. From charities to registered mental health practitioners, we like to join up with others when we can. Some of the organisations that we’ve collaborated with and admire include:
GiveOut is an award-winning UK-based charity raising funds for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex (LGBTQI) human rights activism worldwide.
They ensure that activists and their organisations have more of the resources they need to defend their communities and campaign for change by growing philanthropy in the UK. They provide activists with resources, not strategies, to support them in using their own expertise to effect change.

The Third Culture
The Third Culture is a management consultancy that helps organisations become more effective through a ‘culture-first’ approach. They create solutions in the areas of Culture, Diversity & Inclusion and Leadership that deliver meaningful change.
There is some recognition in many organisations that a change in approach to culture is needed, to keep up with changes in societal attitudes. There is also extensive evidence that a diverse and more representative workforce improves innovation, creativity and drives growth.
But the questions we often ask ourselves are: what really is our organisational culture? How do we define the change that might be needed? And once we know what that change is, how would we implement it and measure our success?
The Third Culture can help answer these questions. You can find out more here
