It’s a symbol of inclusion that defines our company as one that invites and celebrates a healthy mix of perspectives, skills and ambitions. We know that leveraging the ideas and talents of a broad group of people is at the heart of our innovation. And the greater our inclusive culture, the greater our potential to make a difference. That’s why we’re committed to supporting initiatives, organizations and projects that strengthen the LGBT community.
