Transdev CEO Brian Brennan said he was proud Transdev was recognised as welcoming of all sexualities, gender identities or intersex status.
“Inclusivity is one of Transdev’s key sustainability pillars. We are a workplace that is fair, safe and inclusive of all people regardless how they identify,” Mr Brennan said.
“We embrace and celebrate difference as we seek greater advancement of the inclusion of LGBTQIA+ staff.”
Transdev Head of Diversity Equity & Inclusion Sam Collins said Transdev would continue to improve its inclusivity targeting AWEI Silver accreditation by mid 2024.
“We continue to make our workplaces more inclusive and welcoming for everyone,” Ms Collins said.
“It’s important we encourage all our people to feel culturally safe to bring their whole selves to work and we’ll have more exciting news.
“This year we’ll be expanding our Ally network, training opportunities and looking to do more with our partners.
“We’ll have more news on that front as part of Wear It Purple Day on the 25th August.”
