2019 marks 50 years since the Stonewall uprising in Manhattan, where persistent and harsh discrimination towards LGBTQ communities triggered riots and calls for acceptance in the US. As Berlin takes to the streets to celebrate Christopher Street Day, the annual LGBTQ celebration and demonstration, the Franksmile team have decided to take the opportunity to celebrate the diversity among our team, customers and friends. Not only are we proud to be based in a city where differences are embraced and where people unite, but we are even prouder to be building a company that supports this same ideal.
Over the last few months we have seen our team triple in size and it is undeniable that our thriving work environment exists largely due to Franksmile’s inclusive culture and the diversity represented within our team. This has not only brought fresh ideas and different perspectives to the table, but it has strengthened our team’s decision-making abilities, boosted morale and enhanced employee engagement in work. These first-hand experiences have illustrated the overwhelming benefits and importance of embracing diversity to everyone here at Franksmile and we are excited to join Berlin in celebrating every love, every person and every smile this Pride Week.
