LGBTQ+ Employees Make their Voices Heard
It’s easy for members of the LGBTQ+ community to feel isolated in Latin America’s culturally conservative social climate. But many of our perceived differences melt away when we simply listen.
During Pride month in June, we hosted a global webinar featuring a panel of five LGBTQ+ employees sharing their experiences and personal stories. Close to 2,000 people participated in the webinar, with the overarching message that you can be your authentic self at Tigo.
Our webinar coincided with an internal and external LGBTQ+ awareness campaign, which highlighted several employees sharing what inclusion and acceptance mean to them as Tigo employees:
