Celebrating diversity and inclusion

At TELUS, we celebrate a culture of inclusion while recognizing every team member’s unique talents, voice and abilities. Since 2000, TELUS, our team members and retirees have provided over $5.3 million in cash, in-kind contributions, time and programs and volunteered thousands of hours of service to LGBTQ2+ organizations globally.

Driving meaningful change

One of the ways we demonstrate our commitment to fostering a culture of inclusion is through our participation in Pride events across Canada and globally. Since 2007, we have supported Pride events through targeted local sponsorships and invite our team members, friends and family to come together and walk in Pride parades to celebrate diversity and inclusion together.

A history of support

TELUS has been a longtime champion of diversity and inclusion and a supporter of our LGBTQ2+ community.

Team member resource groups

One of the ways we advance inclusion within our organization and our communities is through SPECTRUM, our team member resource group for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, two-spirited and allied (LGBTQ2+) team members.

“Early on, I chose to work at TELUS in part because I knew it is a company that respects and supports the LGBTQ2+ community – from Spectrum, our resource group for LGBTQ2+ team members, and our ongoing support for Pride events across Canada and internationally to raising awareness of important issues and events such as Transgender Day of Visibility.”

Our 2022 charitable partner

All donations raised during the 2022 Pride season will be donated to Rainbow Railroad to support the nonprofit organization’s Crisis Response Fund, which provides refuge to LGBTQ2+ individuals living under the threat of violence.
