Proud professional parents


Alice Mu is a proud, professional parent who works for one of the Big Four accounting firms. She also sits on the board of P3, a parenting support network for LGBT professionals. Alice and her wife, Christine, have a little girl, Charlotte, conceived through donor insemination in 2010. She talked to DIVA about the challenges for samesex parents in the workplace, and what P3 can do to help.

DIVA: What is P3?

ALICE MU: P3 was established in 2014 to better support LGBT professionals who are looking to become parents, or who already have children. Previously, support wasn’t easy to access, and what was required was either too niche for existing LGBT employee networks, or too nuanced for traditional family networks – leaving the needs of professional parents and the organisations that supported them unmet. P3 actively supports professionals in over 60 UK multinational companies, government and regulatory agencies, providing access to an authentic, bespoke and diverse network of experts, parents and prospective parents. We help organisations and schools to create inclusive environments, and run several community events supporting LGBT families more broadly. We promote an agenda of diversity, acceptance and love – from the family home through to the school yard, the boardroom and beyond. P3 believes that family is family – irrespective of sexual orientation or family make-up – and that at the heart of every family is love. And love doesn’t discriminate.
