11th Jun 2024


As we make our way through Pride Month, a time dedicated to honouring the LGBTQ+ community and advocating for equal rights, it’s vital we reflect on the importance of diversity, equality, and inclusion within the workplace. At PE Global, we recognise that fostering an inclusive environment is not just a moral imperative but a strategic advantage in business. We understand and truly believe that diverse teams drive innovation, creativity, and success, hence we’re committed to ensuring our recruitment practices align with these values.


The Importance of Pride Month


Pride Month is more than just a celebration; it’s a reminder of the ongoing fight for LGBTQ+ rights and the progressive steps that have been made. It also presents the opportunity for companies to demonstrate their commitment to diversity, equality, and inclusion by supporting LGBTQ+ employees and creating a welcoming and inclusive workplace for everyone. At PE Global, we believe that every individual deserves to be valued and respected, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
