Our journey so far
Inclusive family leave
Since launch, the network has helped with policy changes across the business, including the Global Parental Leave policy. By replacing previous traditional maternity and paternity leave with primary and secondary caregiver leave, it recognises same sex parents and families. Find out more here...
Transition at work
Colt has also launched a transition at work policy to support employees who identify as trans to take the time out of work they need, and to support them on their journey as an employee of Colt.
In 2020, the Pride Matters network launched LGBT+ ally training and have trained over 200 employees globally so far. The sessions help raise awareness of the LGBT+ community and the issues they face and demonstrate how to be an ally in and out of the workplace.
