#PrideMonth: Shoutout to South Africa’s to top LGBT employer

As we celebrate Gay #PrideMonth, our top 'LGBT employer' shoutout goes to renowned oil and gas giant, Shell South Africa, the first company in the country to setup an LGBT Network.


First set up in the US in 1996 as a supportive space for LGBT colleagues to find confidence in being themselves at work, the network’s code of conduct is centred around providing equal opportunity for all staff wherever they work regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

As a company, Shell SA cares about the diversity of its people because it believe that a fully inclusive workplace allows its  employees to flourish. “And when our employees excel, we excel.”

Mark Emdin, Organisation Effectiveness Manager, Global Functions said the network, as quoted on Shell.co.za, should serve as a beacon for staff in countries where it’s not easy to be LGBTIQ+, and that they can be their true selves at Shell.”
