Together, we can achieve Equality for All.

Equality is a core value at Salesforce. We believe that businesses can be powerful platforms for social change and that it is our responsibility to further Equality for all. Creating a culture of Equality isn’t just the right thing to do; it’s also the smart thing — empowering us to innovate, build deeper connections with our customers, and ultimately become a better company.

We strive to create a workplace that reflects the diverse communities we serve and where everyone feels empowered to bring their full, authentic selves to work.

Baker McKenzie believes in creating a firm with individuals from a variety of countries and cultures.
This is the only way for Baker McKenzie to remain a strong and truly global law firm.

We are proud to have created a global inclusive culture whereby all individuals, regardless of background, sexual orientation or gender identity and expression, are safe to be themselves at work. This inclusive culture is strongly supported by programs, training, networks, transparent policies and processes, and development opportunities implemented by the firm.

Regardless of what jurisdiction an LGBTQ employee of the firm is located in, Baker McKenzie will always strive to create a safe and inclusive working environment.

BRONZE SPONSOR
Deutsche Bank

Every year the Australian LGBTQ Inclusion Awards increase in participation as more and more organisations like ours recognise the importance of LGBTQ inclusion in the workplace. And every year the bar continues to be raised as organisations and their networks seek to do more. That’s why we are proud to participate in the Australian Workplace Equality Index to better understand where we can improve. We recognise that we can only create value through building talented and diverse teams and we want to ensure that Deutsche Bank represents a safe and inclusive environment for our employees and our clients.

BRONZE SPONSOR
IBM

For more than 109 years, IBM has helped change the way the world works – from clocks, calculators and typewriters through to today’s cloud, artificial intelligence and quantum computing platforms.

While the products we sell may change, our values have remained consistent. We take positions – and act – on issues that matter. Today, that begins with data, AI and security and extends to trust and inclusion.

We believe innovation comes from seeking out and inspiring collaboration in all dimensions. Consciously building inclusive teams and encouraging diversity of ideas helps us make the greatest impact for our clients, our colleagues, and the world.

IBM is proud to be a Foundation Member and Principal Partner of Pride in Diversity and sponsor of the 2020 LGBTQ Inclusion Awards.
