In 2018, we made a public commitment by signing up to the UN Standards of Conduct for Business, Tackling Discrimination against Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans, & Intersex People.

UN LGBTI Standards of Conduct

Our aspiration is to honor our commitment to uphold LGBTI human rights and ensure we have a more inclusive workplace.  This year we are focusing on understanding inclusion barriers and taking action to address them by:

  • Participating in the Stonewall Global Workplace Equality Index to identify actions to address any potential barriers;
  • Raising awareness and understanding about LGBTI equity within the company;
  • Demonstrating active support to the LGBTI community through policy changes, inclusion learning offerings, listening dialogues, and establishing a larger community of active allies;
  • Raising awareness and celebrating LGBTI inclusion through global events and communications
