Republic Services is proud to be a workplace where employees of all backgrounds, including race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, and faith feel safe, respected, and valued. As part of our celebration of Pride Month, we’ve shared a series of employee spotlights throughout June. Today’s spotlight features JD K., Vice President, Marketing, and Lis T., Safety Representative.
“When asked what I like most about working at Republic Services my answer is always the same, the people. We foster an environment where LGBTQIA+ team members feel welcomed, included, and can contribute to solving tough environmental challenges every day. I believe that diversity drives creativity, innovation, and results, and I’m proud to work for a company that celebrates diversity in its many forms. Happy Pride!” – JD K., Vice President, Marketing
“The progress I have seen in the last few years has been astonishing, but we need to continue to work together to build a bright future for the LGBTQ+ community. Acceptance must be a priority, especially within diverse and inclusive teams. I’ve worked places where I’ve had to hide my life and who I am, but not at Republic Services. I can be myself at home and at work, and I feel proud to be part of an organization committed to honoring the diversity of all its team members.” – Lis T., Safety Representative
