In conjunction with the Luxembourg Philharmonie Vodafone illuminated the building in rainbow colours on 17 July.
For the third year running, Stonewall recognised Vodafone as a top LGBT+ employer. Following the close of Luxembourg Pride Week the Philharmonie lit up in rainbow colours to show Vodafone’s continued support and commitment to its LGBT+ employees across the globe and their support for the local Luxembourg community.
Vodafone has launched Global Partners with Pride, an initiative designed to promote an LGBT+ agenda through active collaboration with their extensive international network of partners and suppliers. In addition, they have launched a global ’buddying’ programme for LGBT+ graduates, and targeted induction and leadership training programmes to support, retain and help attract LGBT+ employees.
Ninian Wilson, the Global Executive Sponsor for LGBT+ said: “As a global technology company,Vodafone believes it is important that we take a positive stance against discrimination and violence towards the LGBT+ community and show our support to our LGBT+ employees around the world.''
Stephan Gehmacher, Director General Philharmonie Luxembourg adds: “The management team of Philharmonie Luxembourg is committed to guarantee the respect and promotion of diversity in our institution and we welcome Vodafone’s initiative to illuminate the building in order to promote diversity in Luxembourg and in the rest of the world!”
