Sexual orientation

Ericsson is committed to providing an inclusive work environment where everyone is valued and welcome. All individuals are respected for the skills they bring and the contributions and impact they make. We strive to ensure equal treatment of all our employees regardless of sexual orientation.

Ericsson encourage employees to bring their whole selves to work. Ensuring an inclusive environment for LGBTQ employees across the globe is a key and integral part of Ericsson's Global Diversity & Inclusion strategy as our LGBTQ employees are a vital in delivering high performing results.

Policy and practice

We support our LGBTQ employees through both policy and practice.

Our LGBTQ networks promote an inclusive culture in the workplace in which lesbians, gays, bisexual, transgender and queer people (LGBTQ) have equal development and career opportunities. They represent the interest of LGBTQ employees and help create awareness around LGBTQ diversity across the organization.

"Little did I know that I would really love both this company and the ICT sector we are in. And that I would make friends, create connections, be inspired by the people I work with and be open about my personal life.". - Rodrigo Varanda is based in São Paulo, Brazil, and is a member of the External Communications Team for Region Latin America and Caribbean
