This event always gives the company a perfect opportunity to celebrate the uniqueness of its Copart Family (and local communities) and demonstrate its zero-tolerance stance on discrimination and intolerance.

But of course, Copart remains mindful of diversity and inclusion all year round. It’s very important to the company that every teammate always demonstrates, and receives, tolerance and respect.

With that in mind, to mark Pride Month 2023 this June, Copart is rolling out ‘Diversity Basics’ training to over 1,300 teammates across the UK.

This training will help its teammates to be better equipped to understand the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion and appreciate how essential it is in maintaining both a healthy workplace and personal well-being.
