Showing our colours - Objective celebrates diversity

Embracing and celebrating the LGBTI community at Objective

20.02.2018

At Objective, our values underpin who we are and everything we do. We believe that “great people make great teams”. Our people have never been more diverse; and this makes us stronger. As an organisation, we have a responsibility to do everything in our power to enable our people to be the best versions of themselves.

This is why we have decided to publicly embrace and celebrate the LGBTI community at Objective and beyond.

Globally, we are seeing a shift in the way that companies express their views on the social issues that impact the lives of the people in our communities.

To coincide with the 40th anniversary of the Mardi Gras festival here in Sydney (and other pride celebrations taking place around the world), we are launching a campaign that celebrates this diversity.

For the next two weeks, we are proud to display a rainbow version of the Objective logo on our website. The many colours of our world-class product suite will come together to show that we have joined alongside the thousands of organisations in Australia who have publicly pledged their support for those who identify as LGBTI.

At Objective, we believe no one should feel uncomfortable about bringing a same-sex partner to a work function or hesitant to openly disclose their sexual orientation to colleagues or customers in the same way that another person may talk about their husband, wife, children, boyfriend or girlfriend. A person considering a career at Objective should not feel afraid that they may not fit in, or may be judged, because of their ethnicity, religious beliefs or sexual orientation.

Our products and customers are the most diverse they’ve ever been. And we firmly believe that promoting diversity and inclusion at Objective is the right thing to do. It’s aligned to our value of integrity - but it also makes good business sense. People from different backgrounds challenge each other beyond traditional frames of reference, foster creativity, offer unique perspectives and ultimately uncover better ways of doing business.

Follow our celebrations over the next 2 weeks on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.
