Parks-Free and Equal

A partnership for the development of strategies and good practices on the respect for sexual orientation and gender identity in the workplace

In 2017, Gucci became the first luxury fashion brand to join Parks – Liberi e Uguali. This underscores our passionate commitment to inclusion and respect not only in our industry but to our global community. Parks, non-profit-making organisation is named for Rosa Parks, the great American civil rights activist.

All Gucci employees serve as Members of Parks, which brings us training, events and internal surveys to make sure that we have the right framework and strategies to carry through our values and to respect diversity throughout our company.

In September 2017, we hosted Parks’ sixth annual LGBT People at Work Conference. In 2018, we held internal training sessions at our offices in Italy entitled: “Words That Exclude: Beyond the mirror, what is there?”. The President of Parks – Liberi e Uguali, spoke to employees about the role and importance that language has in creating an inclusive culture.

Parks remain a strategic thought partner in all our diversity, equity and inclusion efforts in Italy.
