Hear from one of our talent experts, Abian, on what Pride month means to him, his past experiences and what he's up to at Canda

It’s PRIDE month and what an amazing time to be part of the Canda squad!!!


As a queer person I have struggled with my identity for quite a long time… from interactions with family, friends and also interactions at work. I even remember lying to my employers about my identity because I was too afraid to be bullied, laugh at or even fired. Those fears have clearly shaped the way I look at jobs and employers. I felt like an outsider. To me it’s fundamental to be my true self when I’m at work.


I am super proud to be part of Canda for many reasons but to me feeling comfortable at the workplace is crucial.


When I researched about Canda and saw their mission and what they stand for I instantly fell in love with it all. While interviewing I got the chance to meet Kyle, Sheryl, Jack and Louis and the whole experience was great and I really felt that regardless of my identity, Canda would embrace me.


I have been working for Canda since March this year – I’m still a newbie but I have been able to work on different LGBTQ+ projects which has allowed me to work on something that I am very passionate about and make Canda a more inclusive and diverse work place for others too.


I feel super comfortable talking about my sexuality and relationships with anyone that works at Canda! At Canda, Pride month doesn’t finish, queer people like me are always seen, understood and given the same chances as others!


We are always working to make our company as diverse as possible :rainbow:
