Google launches campaign to prevent discrimination against homosexuals

Google launches campaign to prevent discrimination against homosexuals

announced a campaign to promote the rights of homosexuals, called “Legalize Love” to be deployed in countries that criminalize relationships of same-sex couples.

The head of European diversity and inclusion of Google, Mark Palmer-Edgecumbe, exemplified by countries like Singapore and Poland, although it is expected that the effort be extended to all countries where the company has offices.

Palmer-Edgecumbe said that while Google has facilities in dozens of countries, in some places has been unable or send certain employees because of restrictions in these countries regarding homosexuality.

“At Google, we encourage people to take your whole self to work. In all our 60 offices worldwide, we are committed to cultivating a work environment where Googlers can be themselves and move forward. We also want our employees have the same experience inclusion away from the office, and at work, and that LGBT communities are safe and are accepted wherever they are, “the company said the Washington Post.
