Pride Knows No Boundaries: Globant’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion across the Globe

June 28, 2023

June marks the pinnacle of Globant’s year-long dedication to the LGBTQIA+ community, aiming to create an inclusive environment where every individual feels valued and recognized. Our objective extends beyond awareness-raising; we strive to actively listen to LGBTQIA+ narratives and needs, empowering them through increased visibility and providing them with a supportive and safe space. At Globant, we consistently reaffirm our role as allies, standing in solidarity within and beyond the workplace.


The Evolving Landscape of LGBTQ Rights: A Mixture of Triumphs and Setbacks

A complex mix of progress and challenges marks the journey of LGBTQIA+ rights. According to Forbes and ILGA, significant strides have been made in the past three decades, with 49 states decriminalizing consensual same-sex sexual acts. However, it is disheartening to acknowledge that laws criminalizing homosexuality persist in approximately one-third of countries worldwide. Furthermore, at least nine countries have national laws that criminalize various forms of gender expression, specifically targeting transgender and gender-nonconforming individuals (Human Rights Watch).

Significant progress has been made in advancing LGBTQIA+ rights in various regions worldwide, and Globant is working towards this collective effort. In this compelling context, we want to celebrate Pride at Globant, raise awareness of its relevance, and show our support this month and always.


Embracing Change: Globant’s Initiatives to promote inclusivity and Acceptance

Throughout LGBTQIA+ Pride Month, Globant has orchestrated many events and initiatives to champion diversity and inclusion, facilitate meaningful conversations, and foster a learning culture. While many of these activities are primarily tailored for Globers, select opportunities are available to the broader public, ensuring everyone can actively contribute to driving change. Among the vibrant experiences offered, a few examples include:


Sexual and gender diversity as a driver for reinvention. 

We invite Globers and the Spanish community to participate in this talk, where we will discuss the opportunities for improvement that diversity and inclusion bring to innovation in our workplaces.
