United Employees Show That "Diversity Flies With Us" At LGBT Pride Month Festivities

Stocks in this article: UAL

CHICAGO, June 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --  United employees marched through the streets of downtown Denver on Sunday as part of the city's annual LGBT Pride Festival – one of several parades the airline is participating in across the country to commemorate LGBT Pride Month. Over the next week, United employees will take part in Pride events in four of the airline's hub markets – Chicago, Houston, New York City and San Francisco.

United employees marched through the streets of downtown Denver on Sunday as part of the city's annual LGBT Pride Festival - one of several parades the airline is participating in across the country to commemorate LGBT Pride Month.

"Pride Month is a special time to recognize the diverse and talented employees who make United a great place to work," said Nene Foxhall, executive vice president of communications and government affairs at United. "We are proud to join our co-workers in celebrating this important month and will continue to build a workplace where all employees feel valued and supported."

Celebrating Diversity and Supporting LGBT Employees

United has long supported programs and activities that promote LGBT awareness, inclusion and equality. In August, the company will serve as the official airline of the 2014 Gay Games in Cleveland – the largest international sports and culture festival in the world open to all adult participants. United also has partnerships with a wide range of LGBT organizations, including the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, Equality Illinois and the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association.

United has earned multiple honors for its efforts to promote diversity and inclusion at the airline and in the community. Earlier this year, United was named a "Best Place to Work" by the Human Rights Campaign and achieved a 100-percent rating in the organization's 2014 Corporate Equality Index – the third consecutive year the airline garnered a perfect score from the prominent civil rights group. United also received the Business Leadership Award from Equality Illinois, the state's oldest and largest LGBT advocacy group, and has been recognized by Work Life Matters magazine as a leader for LGBT equality.

Dedicated to building an inclusive workplace, United recently launched an employee-run LGBT business resource group. The group will help increase awareness and understanding of LGBT issues at United, while fostering opportunities for LGBT employees and recruiting diverse talent to the airline.
