LOUD & PROUD

For years, KPN has been committed to an inclusive society and to being an inclusive employer. Specifically for the LGBTQIA+ community, KPN has achieved a number of important things. We sponsored the chair of Professor Jojanneke van der Toorn to contribute to science on LGTBQIA+ inclusion in the workplace. We have had a KPN Pride network for over 11 years, we have anchored in our collective labour agreement that rainbow and multi-parent families have equal rights regarding family expansion and we offer every opportunity to safely go through gender transition.

In addition, we have been working actively with Amsterdam Pride for years to create an event for the entire community worldwide through our technological solutions. In 2015 we did this with Pridestream, in 2022 we do this by giving a stage to DJs from countries where being LGTBQIA+ is still prohibited. With a livestream, the best internet connection and an important message: Loud & Proud: Pride is banned there, but its music will be heard here.

On the boat, we have a diverse composition, especially of staff who identify with the LGBTQIA+ target group. But also a good representation of straight allies, because we know how important allyship is to promote real inclusion. To top it off, we ask our employees to bring a family member or friend who identifies as trans or non-binary. Precisely because every voice states, you should be proud of who you are. KPN will gladly provide a podium to be Loud&Proud.
