The Company Pride Platform is now called Workplace Pride!
Over the years, Company Pride Platform has grown from an organization whose Members were mainly the LGBT employee networks of companies active in the Netherlands, to one which now includes both local and national government bodies. The organization also has established many contacts and stakeholders in other areas, such as the academic world and with other LGBT non-governmental organizations. Finally, from the very beginning we have had international breadth through the focus of our Members, and this has continued to become more important over the years.
In order to better reflect these developments, the increased scope of the organziation and to better serve the needs of our Members, the Company Pride Platform was rebranded into Workplace Pride on 1 January 2012. The well-know rainbow globe was retained as still being representative of what we are, and the tagline: ‘International platform for LGBT Inclusion at Work‘ was added to say in just a few words what the Foundation is all about.
