At Republic, we strive to create a workplace where employees of all backgrounds, including race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, and faith feel safe, respected and valued. It is a commitment that embodies our values and one we take very seriously.
An LGBTQ+ ally is someone who supports equality and fairness for LGBTQ+ individuals and their families. Whether they have a close friend or family member who identifies as LGBTQ+ or don’t know anyone personally, allies are some of the most effective and powerful voices of the movement.
As we continue our Pride Month celebration, we’re sharing the perspective of Jake A. on being an LGBTQ+ ally.
“Inclusive environments permeate where people feel comfortable and confident being themselves in front of their peers, leaders and direct reports. Divisions where employees know that their leaders care about them, not just as a driver, a dispatcher or a technician but as a mom, a brother or a fan of Lamar Jackson are workplaces of allyship and compassion.” – Jake A., General Manager, Virginia
