Teleperformance Philippines capped its month-long celebration of PRIDE month last June with an online fund-raising event to help LGBTQ+ communities in distress.
Dubbed as TP Pride 4 Pride Challenge, the online fund-raising event aims to provide 100 care packages composed of sanitary kits, masks, and food to support the LGBTQ+ in need.
“Here at Teleperformance, we strive to create a diverse and inclusive environment for our employees,” according Jeffrey Johnson, Senior Vice President for Human Capital Resource Management. “This year’s Pride Month celebration is just the beginning of a stronger, deeper year-long commitment to promote this advocacy in various branches of the company,” he added.
Taking their advocacy to the workplace, Teleperformance produced a forum called ‘Queeries: Leaders’ Discussion on LGBT Mental Health and Inclusion,’ guest-starring organizations such as Your Millennial Psychologist, Psychological Association of the Philippines Special Interest Group, Philippine Financial & Inter-Industry Pride, and Philippine LGBT COC, where they aim to educate leaders, decision makers, and LGBTQ+ colleagues on the value in creating and maintaining LGBTQ+ inclusive practices in the company.
Also part of their efforts in pushing gender diversity in the workplace is the TP Traiblazer Podcast where special episodes feature TP Pride leaders and guests to share their views on LGBTQ+ relationships and Transgender inclusion. Along with this is the TPTV Pride Special Series inviting Teleperformance’s LGBTQ+ employees to provide resourceful insights on LGBTQ+ Pop Culture.
Teleperformance leaders also committed to uphold monthly participation in TP Pride activities like SOGIE sensitivity sessions, SOGIE 101 e-learning courses, and TP Tribe mentorship program, among others.
Teleperformance stands firm with the LGBTQ+ community through the Humanizing SOGIE and Faces of TP Pride digital flipbook displayed on various sites, exhibiting the profiles of SOGIE and TP Pride advocates.
TP Pride is an initiative that kickstarted in 2018 that sought to raise awareness and educate Teleperformance employees about the experiences of LGBTQ+ individuals.
