LGBTQ+ History Month: Learning from Personal Stories

P&G LGBTQ Lead with Love logo

P&G is a company that values diversity and strives to create a world free from bias – both inside our organisation and in wider society. As part of our celebrations for LGBTQ+ History Month, we are proud to share the personal histories of our colleagues through their experiences.

At P&G, we are so fortunate to have people within our organisation from different backgrounds, different parts of the world and with such different life experiences. It is our individual life stories that makes each of us unique, but it’s forming a deep understanding and respect for our uniqueness that unites us.

We are so grateful to members of our GABLE team who have offered to share their stories, to help us all on our journey to strive for an even more inclusive workplace where everyone can bring their true authentic selves to work each day.
