Chloe, a current HR IP talks about all things Pride..
“With over 100 employees taking part, it was our biggest Pride celebration to date!”
Just 3 weeks into my industrial placement with Unilever I was lucky enough to join a team of around 100 employees, along with their friends and family to take part in the biggest Pride celebration to date.
Unilever have always celebrated diversity both inside the work place and out, however this year was the biggest year in Pride’s 45 year history and Unilever definitely pulled out all the stops! Magnum, Cornetto, Lynx and Bed Head by TIGI took part in the march, promoting diversity and celebrating individuality within our business. Featuring taglines from the brands’ campaigns, including Lynx’s ‘Find your magic’ and Cornetto’s ‘Share the love’, the float linked nicely with Pride’s overarching ‘Love happens here’ theme for 2017. The float was impressive with Unilever’s own employees performing and working the crowds. Especially Mr. Magnum!
As one of the world’s most culturally diverse companies, Unilever are committed to developing an inclusive culture and recognising the contribution of all their employees regardless of gender, age, race, disability, sexual orientation or any other background. Even though I’m still new to the business, this diverse community is something I’m proud to be a part of.
