Why signing up to Pride 365 is important to us?
At boohoo our mission is to create a culture and environment where every one of our colleagues can be their authentic self at work without exception. Partnering with experts like pride 365, enables us to learn and embed programmes that are authentic, meaningful to our LGBTQ+ community and, that will ultimately help us to achieve our mission.
How does the Pride 365 pledge fit in with your values?
At boohoo we hire the best talent and we give our people the room to grow and flourish. To do this we have built a culture of respect and fairness where our teams have the authority and autonomy to make decisions. These values are aligned to Pride 365 which is why they are a natural partner for us.
