In celebration of LGBTQ Pride this month, technology leader CenturyLink is replacing its company flag with the LGBTQ+ Pride flag at various office locations in the U.S. and Europe.
Replacing the company flag with the Pride flag is a first for the company, and it speaks to CenturyLink’s support of its LGBTQ employees, which are among its approximately 41,500 global workforce.
The Pride flag was flown during the first week of June at CenturyLink offices in Broomfield, Colorado, Apopka, Floriday, Columbia, Missouri, Monroe, Louisiana, Tulsa, Oklahoma, Amsterdam, Netherlands, and Basingstoke, U.K.
The company has several Pride Employee Resource Group (ERG) chapters around the world with nearly 700 members.
CenturyLink also recently approved the voluntary use of gender-inclusive pronouns in employee email signatures and is offering gender-affirming health care benefits.
