Monsanto supports marriage equality for all
Monday 4th September 2017
The leadership of Monsanto Australia wishes to express support for marriage equality in Australia.
In our business, we are proud to cultivate an inclusive work environment where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. We work in capital cities and in rural towns and we know this is an issue that touches all communities.
It’s important for us to show leadership in the agricultural industry on this issue and speak out on marriage equality. We want to see this matter dealt with in a respectful manner that recognises the opportunity Australia has to extend marriage equality to our LGBTI friends and family.
Australia has a long history of proudly building a society that believes in equality. Legalising same-sex marriage will ensure that our country joins the likes of Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, Mexico, New Zealand, South Africa and the United States of America in recognising the human rights of LGBTI people.
We want a society that formally respects the rights of our colleagues, friends and families to be able to live, work and marry - free from discrimination and with all the essential freedoms enjoyed by the wider Australian community.
