“Google aspires to be an organization that reflects the globally diverse audience that our search engine and tools serve. And we believe that in addition to hiring the best talent, the diversity of perspectives, ideas, and cultures leads to the creation of better products and services,” said Keerthana Mohan, APAC Diversity and Inclusion Manager. “Google supports its LGBT employees in many ways which include fostering a strong internal employee network, growing relationships with external organisations, and going the extra mile with workplace policies and benefits to ensure that our employees are treated fairly. We were delighted to see the success of Pink Dot in 2011 and want to contribute to its success this year again”.

“At Barclays, we recognise the value of diversity and inclusion to our business and our employees. Diverse teams make better decisions and they better reflect our clients and the communities we are part of,” said Richard Seeley, Regional Head of Spectrum in Asia, Barclays global LGBT employee network. “We pride ourselves on facilitating a workplace where staff are respected for their talents and contributions, in an environment that offers everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity, the same opportunities to be successful.

“That is why, we are proud to be a corporate contributor of this year’s Pink Dot Singapore. Pink Dot’s message of diversity, inclusiveness and acceptance is a mission that resonates with the values and culture within our organisation.”
