Office Depot is proud to celebrate Pride Month and show our allyship to the LGBTQ+ community. This annual celebration, which takes place throughout the month of June, is a time to promote equality and raise awareness for social issues impacting the LGBTQ+ community.
At Office Depot OfficeMax, we embrace the diversity of our associates, and our commitment to fostering an inclusive and supportive workplace is embedded in our 5C Culture (Customer, Commitment, Change, Caring, and Creativity). We believe that an equitable and inclusive company culture is essential for the success of our business and our people.
As part of this commitment, we offer one of the most comprehensive Supplier Diversity programs in the industry, providing LGBTQ+ owned small businesses and other diverse suppliers with more opportunities to grow and prosper.
In addition to promoting and partnering with LGBTQ+ owned small businesses, Office Depot OfficeMax also celebrates the LGBTQ+ community through internal events led by our LGBTQ+ Associate Resource Group (ARG). The ARG partners with our Community Investment program to foster an inclusive workplace through empowerment, empathy, and community service.
Our associates from the ARG also attend pride events in several regions. We believe that allyship is a key part of creating progress for workplace equity, and we provide training and support to help our associates learn and grow.
