This video was produced by IBM UK’s EAGLE community (Employee Alliance for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Empowerment) in connection with the Holding Hands 4 Equality campaign. Featuring images from nearly 30 countries around the world, this video expresses our extended IBM LGBT and straight ally communities’ global commitment to equality – through the simple act of holding hands with their loved ones.

Special thanks to Jess Glynne, her manager, Sam Eldridge, her music label (Warner Music) and her writers (Universal Music Publishing, Sony ATV, BMG and Reverb Music) for their assistance in the use of Jess’ amazingly inspirational song, “Hold My Hand” for our video; as well as, to Sarah Warsaw and our IBM UK Marketing and Communications team, without whose genius, we would not have been able to pull this together in time.
