PRIDE AT WORK
Every day at Fido is Pride. We want our employees to be their best selves, and that starts with just being themselves. It means being allowed and empowered to speak up, to be included and to feel accepted.
“I’m fortunate enough to work for a company for now 18 years that accepts me for who I am! I did my coming out [at Fido] and it was such an easy step to take when you already feel accepted hence why I love to celebrate Pride at work because I want other members in the LGBTQ2S+ to feel comfortable and that they are in a safe place!” - Jessica B., Social Media & E-Sol, at Fido

STORIES FROM ACROSS CANADA
“At the very beginning of the COVID crisis, Fido stepped up and offered 10 cell phones to our staff. This connected our community members who would not have been able to access LGBTQ specific services and support. ” - Lisa Duplessis, Director, Operations at The 519
“We are grateful for the generosity and show of support by Fido enabling health and wellness to our LGBTQ2S+ community members. We have scheduled [meetings] and are so looking forward to reconnecting. Thank you, Fido, for having pride and respect in our quest for equality, free of discrimination.” - Carolyn Hill
“[This donation] will allow virtual peer-support sessions to this vulnerable community who needs it now more than ever due to an increase in isolation. Thank you for recognizing the needs of our LGBTQ2S community and for providing practical ways for us to bridge the digital divide.” - Cyndi Sweeney, Chapter Leader
