Hitachi Data Systems Supports Marriage Equality in Australia
Sydney — March 3, 2017 — Hitachi Data Systems Australia Pty Ltd has pledged its support for marriage equality in Australia, joining the growing ranks of enterprises and corporations rallying behind the Australian Marriage Equality campaign.
Giving everyone a fair go regardless of their background, age, gender, religion and sexual orientation is an essential Australian value. Diversity also makes sound business sense, as policies of inclusiveness foster employee support and enablement during times of transformation and business growth.
Nathan McGregor, vice president and general manager, Hitachi Data Systems Australia and New Zealand said: “We believe that every company has a duty to contribute to the greater good. As a part of our corporate strategy, we promote diversity and inclusion in our workforce, viewing differences in sexual orientation as a reflection of our individuality. Support for marriage equality is therefore not only a worthy cause for Australian society but also directly benefits businesses and their employees.”
