Diversity and Inclusion

As it does in the Armed Forces, working for the Legion relies on respect for others and behaving in ways that make individuals feel like a valued part of the team.

Here are some of the ways we do just that.

LGBTQ+ & Allies Branch

In 2019, we launched our first ever LGBTQ+ branch. Hear more from founding member Ann Miller-McCaffrey about why LGBTQ community groups are so important.

Diversity Champions

We are a member of the Stonewall Diversity Champions and believe in a workplace that's truly inclusive. We are a workplace where all LGBT employees are accepted without exception.
