During the last week of June, Pride Week celebrates the equality of sexual and gender minorities and the realization of human rights. Like many other Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences, also Laurea flies the flags in honour of Pride.

In Laurea, the aspiration for equality is enshrined in the equality program:

“The starting point for the Laurea students' equality program is equal treatment between people and equality. All Laurea’s students and staff, partners and applicants are equal regardless of their personal qualities or background.”

During the Pride week 24.6.-30.6. a voice is given to those belonging to gender and sexual minorities. During the week equality, equal treatment and human rights are celebrated at numerous events.
