Podcast: In Focus - Celebrating Pride Month

In this special episode, we celebrate Pride Month by discussing the importance of LGBTQ+ acceptance in the workplace.

Organisers of the UK’s first Pride protest in 1972 hoped that it would serve as an antidote to widespread shame prevalent throughout the LGBTQ+ community at the time. Now, fifty years on, there has been significant process in acceptance for LGBTQ+ people, but there are still many barriers to people showing their authentic selves in all aspects of their lives.

Bonnie Cliff, Digital Content Producer, sits down with Karlis Kirsis, Chief Legal Officer at GXO Logistics, to discuss how the business has shown a continued commitment to the LGBTQ+ community and how logistics businesses can create a welcoming atmosphere for all their employees regardless of sexuality or gender identity.

“We have a large body of team members from across the world, and it's important that they can all come to work, contribute their unique perspectives and be themselves; for better business results, but also to create a welcoming work environment,” said Karlis.
