We are proud to be celebrating our LGBTQ+ employees, partners and friends this month. At more2, we are committed to diversity, inclusion and equality and we honour this commitment through our workplace values, our policies and our actions. It is very important to us that our LGBTQ+ employees are not discriminated against and that we foster a supportive and inclusive environment where everyone feels comfortable to be themselves.
As part of marking Pride month, we had a great evening trying our hands at tie-dying t-shirts, bags, and other items in the colours of the Pride rainbow. We will be sporting our finished pieces on a day we’ll dedicate to wearing the Pride colours across the business.
The Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Team
As part of our mission to ensure equality, diversity and inclusion within the workplace, we have formed an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Team.
This team is made up of employees who are passionate about this cause and are dedicated to enacting real and positive change. We recognise that there is more to be done but the team have implemented several initiatives to date:
Taken actions to eliminate bias during the recruitment process
Introduced reporting capability so that we can identify and eradicate bias within the workplace
Expanded our company holiday calendar to increase employees’ sense of belonging
Set up events and initiatives to celebrate inclusion, such as a Pride celebration this month
Created a forum to give opportunity for conversation around important events and initiatives
Introduced a new employee assistance platform focusing on wellbeing and mental health
Although we have made company-wide changes to reflect our stance, our journey is just beginning and we look forward to continuing to pave the way for an equal, inclusive and diverse workforce.
