Workplace Pride is very pleased to welcome it’s new Global Benchmark partner, Parks – Liberi e Uguali (Free and Equal) of Italy. Parks’ unique name gets its inspiration from the American civil rights activists Rosa Parks, who fought courageously for the African American community’s legal rights in the 1960’s.
Parks, based in Milan, Italy, has many of the same objectives as Workplace Pride, but focuses primarily on the Italian Market. The organization has also developed a measurement tool call the GLBT Diversity Index which is designed for employers in Italy and can be seen as complementary to the Workplace Pride Global Benchmark.
“Parks and Workplace Pride work with many of the same international employers” said David Pollard, Executive Director of Workplace Pride, “this is a strong sign that the momentum of LGBT workplace inclusion is strong and moving in the right direction.”
