June 3, 2020 - At TPI we value diversity and inclusion and are deeply saddened by the recent events in Minneapolis and across the US. We remain committed to diversity and fighting racism and discrimination of any kind wherever and however it exists. #mytpi
June 1, 2020 - At TPI, we have an incredible opportunity to benefit from the diversity we have in our company, and to do more that maximizes the positive impact that diversity and inclusion can bring. TPI associates come from many different countries and cultures. We aspire to create an environment and culture at TPI that recognizes, celebrates and benefits from these differences. For the month of June, we will be celebrating the LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, or Questioning, Intersex, and Ally) community. Due to the COVID-19 situation the LGBTQIA community unfortunately will not be able to host as many celebrations as they would have in years past which means less funds raised. Please join us in this celebration and look for ways to support your local LGBTQIA community. #diversityandinclusion #mytpi #tpitomorrow
