XPO Logistics is sponsoring the first ever Tamworth Pride festival in Staffordshire, signalling its support of LGBTQ+ employees.

The company said it was continuing to expand its commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion and its sponsorship of the event on 14-15 August follows its sponsorship of the New York City Pride March, the Mid-South Pride Fest, the Tri-State LGBTQ+ Unity Summit and the Lesbians Who Tech Virtual Summit in the US.

It is also supporting the Birmingham Pride festival in September.

Dan Myers, XPO Logistics MD for UK and Ireland, said: “Diversity makes sense for so many reasons.

“We can attract and retain the very best talent in tough labour markets, it supports better decision-making by drawing on a wider range of views, and it’s just the right thing to do.

“It’s important to everyone at XPO that our colleagues from the LGBTQ+ community feel welcome, valued and included.”
