Demonstrating Amazon India commitment towards a gender neutral culture, has designed a special tape to seal its brown boxes used for delivery of packages at customers doorstep.

The e-commerce company said it has dedicated the entire month of June to LGBTQIA+, a term used to refer people of gender neutral community.

Amazon boxes will carry special tape with the pride flag

Swati Rustagi, Director, DE&I, International Markets, WW Consumer, Amazon, said, in June, Amazon boxes being dispatched from fulfillment centres in Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru will carry the special tape with the pride flag of 11 colours, reflecting the diversity of the LGBTQIA+ community and the spectrum of human sexuality and gender.

Offers a same gender partner coverage programme
To support the needs of this community, the company offers a same gender partner coverage programme, which helps employees enrol their same gender partner in their health insurance programme, she said.

Options to choose a gender reassignment surgery

Employees also have options to choose a gender reassignment surgery or sign up for infertility treatment, both of which are provided as part of the health insurance benefit.

The company also supports LGBTQIA+ employees with resources and access to counsellors through its employee assistance programme.

The programme provides them with resources, counselling, support and guidance in their journey they want to open up about their sexuality with their family, friends, or colleagues, she said.

To create an inclusive workplace, all managers are trained in inclusive leadership, a programme designed to enable managers to thoughtfully lead teams with diverse employees, she said.

"We stand together with the LGBTQIA+ community both within and outside of Amazon, and we continue to look for ways to scale our impact as we grow by providing opportunities to diverse cohorts," Rustagi said.

Among many affinity groups within Amazon, Glamazon is focused on the LGBTQIA+ community, and it helps bring LGBTQIA+ employees, associates and allies together to discuss and share experiences from across the globe.
