Thanks to the generous support of Allianz Germany in Munich and Allianz agencies in and around the Gaertnerplatz, an area dear to the city’s LGBT community, this year Allianz will sport its own float at Munich’s Christopher Street Day parade.
“This year, we are going to be many more participants, and the Allianz parade float will give us great visibility,” says Franz Vojik, one of the speakers of Allianz Pride. “I am proud to work for a company that makes a public statement for LGBT inclusion.”
Like for Munich’s Christopher Street Day in 2016 and 2017, this July 14 the Allianz Arena will shine in the colors of the rainbow, the symbol of LGBT Pride, between 9:00 and 11:00 PM. The lighting is co-initiated by Allianz Pride, the company’s network of employees with different sexual orientation.
“As the Chair of the Allianz Global Inclusion Council and strongly committed to creating a work environment where people feel they belong, I welcome our visible display of inclusion towards the LGBT community,” says Allianz SE Board Member Niran Peiris. “Diversity is key to Allianz’s business, and I support our clear stand against discrimination of any kind.”
Allianz is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion. It is estimated that circa 10 percent of the world’s population belong to the LGBT community, and LGBT inclusion plays an important role in ensuring the company embraces all of society, for the good of employees, customers and all other stakeholders.
