When it comes to giving back, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) is one of the few companies that does everything it can – plus so much more. For instance, you can learn more about its latest endeavors by checking out this article. You may be surprised at just how open the company is to doing its part in making the world a better place.
Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) recently posted the following story to its blog: Celebrating Pride 2013
While the name may give you a basic idea of what this story is all about, below is a brief excerpt explain the situation in greater detail:
“Thousands of Googlers, Gayglers (LGBT Googlers), and their families and friends took to the streets last month to participate in Pride parades and celebrations around the globe. Pride had a special buzz this year, as DOMA and Prop 8 were struck down by the Supreme Court three days before the parades, marking an important step toward equal rights for all.”
Once again, this shows that Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) has an open mind and that the search engine giant is more than willing to support a variety of groups. As you know, some companies are against this but Google knows what it means to be a well rounded company.
It doesn’t matter if you agree or disagree with Google’s stance on this. What matter is that the company is willing to back all of their employees, regardless of their beliefs.
And the company did more than back this group. Here is how:
“We supported our fellow Gayglers and others around the world with recording-breaking attendance at parades in San Francisco (well over 1300 Googlers and allies) and New York (500+ participants). In other parts of the world, we marched in celebrations in London, Budapest, Dublin, Tel Aviv, and Tokyo Rainbow Week 2013. We floated along the canals in Amsterdam Pride parade, marched in the Mardi Gras parade in Sydney and will gather in Hong Lim park for Singapore’s 3rd annual Pink Dot celebration.”
This may not be big news for some, but for Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) and those who took place in the events it is a nice step in the right direction.
Giving back and standing side by side with its employees is what Google is all about. The company has built its reputation on this over the years, and will continue to do so in the future.
