Diageo kicked off its Pride celebrations by hosting one of its largest ever Progress Pride flag-raising events.

Led by The Rainbow Networks, Diageo's incredible Employee Resource Groups that ensure the talents and contributions of all Diageo LGBTQIA+ employees are respected and embraced, the event saw 78 sites take part, from Scotland to South Africa, Australia to Colombia.

Supporting each other in the workplace

Diageo’s Rainbow Network maintains both an internal and external focus, supporting one another in the workplace to foster an environment where all employees can bring their whole self to work, whilst also considering the connection, outreach and social impact that they can have within the broader community in which the company operates.

With 12 Rainbow networks worldwide, these range from groups across North America to the UK, Brazil to Amsterdam and South Africa to India. This is a truly global network that strives to create the most open and inclusive culture both in, and beyond, Diageo.

Championing diversity and inclusion across the business

Diageo colleagues are welcomed and celebrated for who they are just by being them. Diageo employees are part of - and help build - an inclusive culture that celebrates people of different gender, ethnicity, ability, age, sexual orientation, social class, educational backgrounds, experiences, mindsets, and more. They help Diageo champion inclusion and diversity across the entire business: with employees, suppliers, across brands, and within the communities in which the company operates.

Diageo is an inclusive employer 

Diageo's purpose is to celebrate life, every day, everywhere.

Creating an inclusive culture where everyone feels valued and listened to, is a crucial part of this.
