The luxury goods company takes another step towards inclusivity

Just in time for Pride Month, LVMH Group is showing its continued commitment to the LGBTQ community.

On Tuesday, the luxury group’s U.S. maisons followed their European partners’ lead by signing the UN Standards of Conduct for Business, which fights against discrimination toward LGBTQ people in their workforce.

“All of our employees should be able to be themselves and be considered for their contribution, irrespective of other considerations such as their race, gender or sexual orientation,” Chantal Gaemperle, group executive vice president human resources and synergies for the group, told WWD.

In the past five years, LVMH has placed anti-discriminatory measurements in their companies including Sephora, Marc Jacobs, Kendo, Belvedere and Starboard. Meanwhile, Louis Vuitton has featured LGBT models, including trans actor Indya Moore.

The conglomerate's European members signed the UN Standards of Conduct in March, and the document's tenants include "Respect Human Rights of LGBTI workers, customers and community members" and "Eliminate Discrimination against LGBTI employees in the workspace."

By the end of 2019, LVMH will unveil a series of internal initiatives to create an inclusive work environment for LGBT employees.
