Vodafone NZ Proud To Be Recertified With Rainbow Tick

Published: Wed 8 Jul 2020 11:11 AM
Vodafone New Zealand is proud to have been recertified with the Rainbow Tick for another year. This is the organisation’s third year with the certification.
The Rainbow Tick is awarded to organisations that successfully demonstrate it is supportive, inclusive and encouraging of the rainbow community.
Chris Kolston, Vodafone’s Rainbow Whānau Lead, says, “This year was all about continuous support. For our recertification, we completed an internal audit on our policies and processes which included engaging self-identifying focus groups for the Rainbow Tick to gauge our support of our LGBTQI+ employees – a test which we’re pleased to have passed.
“We had honest, safe and enlightening discussions about how we see the professional and interpersonal environment within Vodafone, specifically on matters of inclusion and acceptance for our LGBTQI+ members.”
Throughout the year, Vodafone’s Rainbow Whānau took an innovative approach using the Agile methodology, a popular project management process in tech companies, to deliver numerous internal and external initiatives, including Winter Pride, the Global Pride Webinar, Pronoun Awareness lunch & learn sessions, Wellington Pride Youth Ball, and many more.
“The Rainbow Tick is more than just ticking the boxes, it’s in place to ensure we’re continuously providing a supportive environment for our LGBTQI+ colleagues, and taking meaningful action to do so.” Kolston adds.
Vodafone’s Rainbow Whānau started in 2015 and runs Vodafone’s LGBTQI+ activities with support from the executive team and other stakeholders across the business.
