Celebrating Pride Month at Kontoor
This week we begin our celebration of Pride Month. Together we will recognize the importance of LGBTQIA+ rights and recognize the impact LGBTQIA+ people have had on our communities worldwide.
At Kontoor, we are committed to advancing a more inclusive workplace and community and that is why celebrating Pride is important to us. Pride Month provides a moment in time to reaffirm our commitment to our LGBTQIA+ employees, friends, and community with a promise to continue to learn and grow together.
Throughout the month, we will be taking time recognize the importance of LGBTQIA+ rights and recognize the impact LGBTQIA+ people have had on our communities worldwide with a series of activities hosted by our Employee Resource Group, LIFE.
Additionally, our Lee brand will launch its “Lee is Love” campaign to celebrate the contributions the LGBTQIA+ population has made within our culture, complete with a donation to The Trevor Project, a non-profit that provides crisis support services to LGBTQIA+ youth. You can follow the Lee is Love campaign on Instagram and TikTok channels.
Wrangler will continue its support of ILGA World, a non-profit advocacy group focused on LGBTQ+ justice and equity, with a donation in coordination with a limited-release PRIDE apparel collection in EMEA. Later in June, Wrangler will tell the stories of a rancher and a country music artist who are part of the LGBTQIA+ community. You can follow along with their stories on the brand’s Instagram channel.
We invite you to join us in celebrating Pride Month and to show your support for the LGBTQIA+ community throughout June, and beyond.
