In 2017, 100+ business leaders lead by example and marched with WeAreOpen at Budapest Pride together with over 1,000 of their colleagues.
The statement of the business leaders that they joined with their photos below:
“As a business leader I’ll participate at Budapest Pride. People would like to work for companies where they can be sure, the only thing that matters is their performance, regardless of their gender identity, of their ethnicity or of who they love. As a leader I consider it as an important and responsible act to stand for this value and for our current and future employees.
Thus I join WeAreOpen’s initiative and try to inspire other leaders to do the same. An open workplace is good for the employees, means competitive advantage for the business actors, is the key for better performance and for hiring and retaining colleagues.
Let’s meet at WeAreOpen’s float when Pride march starts on 8 July.”
