Alphabet people give alphabet fuel company an alphabet award

Alex Arshansky

Local [alphabet] fuel company Z has been awarded the Rainbow Tick, an [alphabet] accreditation designed to help an organisation ensure it is a safe and welcoming workplace for all [alphabet] employees, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Z chief executive Mike Bennetts says it is important to Z to stand for what’s important and to continually look for ways to improve.

“While the areas of gender balance, ethnicity and ability have been the focus of most diversity and inclusion programmes at Z, the Rainbow Tick addresses sexual orientation and gender diversity.

“In achieving the Rainbow Tick, Z will be publicly recognised as a place where a person’s sexual orientation is embraced by the business as a part of who someone is.

“Creating a workplace where people are free to be their authentic selves is not just the right thing to do, but it is also acknowledged to be a central factor in attracting and retaining the best talent,” says Mike.[…]

I guess that depends on one’s definition of “authentic”.

Internal communications manager Jeremy Clarke spearheaded Z’s journey to accreditation.

Jeremy, who self-identifies as LGBTI+, says coming out in a work environment can be a daunting prospect with the uncertainty of what reaction might be received.

“The Rainbow Tick is a visible demonstration that for accredited organisations like Z, being open as LGBTI+ is welcomed.

So will Z now be known as LGBTIZ?

“It is about being able to be your true self at work. We know that we can be who we really are, we can be more settled, be more comfortable in our surroundings and attain greater satisfaction in our work.

Again, it depends on one’s definition of “true”.

“Ultimately it helps us become more successful in what we set out to achieve,” says Jeremy.

How, exactly?  The same way as dumping all old white males from directorships?

Rainbow Tick accreditation is merely the beginning, it is a continuous improvement process that we will be undertaking to seize identified opportunities for improvement while being able to reflect on what we already do well, says Jeremy.

Rainbow Tick programme director Michael Stevens is pleased to add Z to a growing list of 34 New Zealand companies with Rainbow Tick accreditation.[…]

So we have 34 companies bowing the knee to this virtue-signalling PC nonsense.  Time for some boycotts?

 

Screen grab Whaleoil

There are a number of logos there that match the logos of organisations promoting Fisting and other activities during “Pride” Week.

I wonder how NZ Rugby supports all their transvestite players?

In solidarity with the those in the world’s most despised demographic, WH has decided to ‘come out’ as an old, white, male. WH enjoys exercising the white male privilege, that Whaleoil provides for him, to write the occasional post challenging climate change consensus; looking at random tech issues that tweak his interest, as a bit of a tech nerd; or generally poking the borax at anyone in public life who goes on record revealing their stupidity. WH never excelled on the sports field because his coaches never allowed him to play in his preferred position on the right-wing.  WH also enjoys his MG.
