At BP, we promote an environment where employees can bring their whole selves to work. This makes sure that all our people can deliver at their best and progress based on their full potential. BP Pride, our employee led LGBT+ network, has developed two core programmes to help drive an inclusive work environment for all:
BP is known for its progressive action in facilitating inter-energy awareness and cross-industry networks on LGBT+ issues. As such, we are now the highest-ranking energy company in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index.
BP Pride also has an established network of external LGBT partnerships, which support our commitment to LGBT+ employees, including:
"Our values and behaviours are the foundation of our Code – Respect is a hugely important value. We want people to feel able and willing to give their best for BP every day, and that means making sure people feel valued and completely welcome and accepted when they come to work.
"To succeed in an increasingly competitive world we need to be a business where everybody feels included, treated with respect and dignity and knows they can freely contribute their ideas and speak up without fear of retaliation when something doesn’t seem right. BP has built a reputation as a great place to work, whatever your background, whatever your sexual orientation or gender, and regardless of any needs you may have relating to a particular disability. I’m really proud of our record, but we still have much more to do to fully reflect the world and the communities that we work in."
