Amazon team celebrates Pride

The team at the Amazon fulfilment centre in Kegworth marked Pride Month with a host of socially distanced, celebratory activities.

 

The activities, which included fulfilment centre decorations, a coloured walkway, an ice-lolly giveaway and a quiz took place at the site in Kegworth as part of Amazon’s commitment to celebrating the stories and achievements of LGBTQ+ colleagues, customers and communities.

Speaking on the Pride Month events, Amazon Kegworth General Manager, Celia Syme, said:

“Pride Month is a special opportunity to celebrate diversity, equality and inclusion for our LGBTQ+ employees and the many others who are proud to count themselves as allies. I’d like to say a big thank you to the Amazon Kegworth team for adding to the fantastic atmosphere of each of our events.”

Martin Hayburn, who works at Amazon in Kegworth, added:

“It’s important to stand united against all forms of prejudice and I’m proud to work for an employer that acknowledges that. It has been great to celebrate Pride Month as a team and all the fun events have brought lots of smiles to lots of faces.”
