To mark Pride Month 2023, Copart has committed to sponsoring the Milton Keynes Pride festival once again, and the company is rolling out further diversity and inclusion training to over 1,300 Copart teammates.
Copart has a culture that has always welcomed equality, diversity, and inclusion and is proud to say that its Senior Management Team and wider workforce are as diverse as the communities in which the company operate.
Having a positive impact on the local communities where its teammates, customers, and partners live and work, forms an important part of the Copart Cares commitment.
As a supportive ally to the LGBTQ+ community, Copart proudly sponsoring the MK Pride Festival for the third consecutive year, which is held only a short distance from its Wootton HQ and Customer Excellence Centre in Bedford.
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.
Jane Pocock, CEO of Copart UK & Ireland, said:
“We’re delighted to show that Copart Cares about the LGBTQ+ community by sponsoring the fantastic MK Pride event again, alongside other our diversity and inclusion initiatives, including the ‘Diversity Basics’ training.
We’re proud to have such a diverse workforce, and it’s important to us that every single Copart teammate feels supported, safe, and truly comfortable to be themselves at all times.
We provide a range of wellbeing networks and tools on our internal Copart Rewards platform, as well as Mental Health First Aiders, a 24/7 Employee Assistance Programme, and access to the support services of the Ben Automotive Charity.”
