Bayer is a Friend of Pride, supporting inclusion and diversity

At Pride festivals in Cambrige, Dublin and Reading, Bayer will be celebrating Inclusion and diversity is crucial for the future of Bayer.

It influences the extent to which people bring their own unique views, backgrounds and experience into our organisation, helping to shaping our culture and build a better future for our company and our customers.


Ultimately an inclusive environment fast tracks our business: it helps build trust, drive effectiveness and productivity, increase engagement and launch innovation.


A key focus of Bayer’s inclusion and diversity strategy is to support external initiatives that align with our own approach and positively promote our brand values.


To this end we are proud to be “Friends of Pride”. We will supporting Pride festivals in Reading and Dublin over the summer months – the Cambridge festival took place on 8 June and we were there too!


The smaller Pride festivals rely solely on volunteers and support from local businesses and people, so we encourage you to support the festivals if you are in Dublin on 29 June and Reading on 31 August.
