Hayley Tatum, Senior Vice President of People, on why Pride is important:
‘At Asda we are really passionate about creating an inclusive culture that enables not only our colleagues to feel supported to be who they are every day, but also our customers and communities too. The summer of Pride is a key part of this as it provides an opportunity for everyone to celebrate how far we have come on LGBT+ rights but also to reflect and think about how far we still have to go as a society. Pride offers a fantastic opportunity for the LGBT+ community to come together, with their allies, to march in support of a world that allows people to love and express themselves without fear’
