Updated on

Mobile gaming company LeoVegas is supporting the Malta Pride for the third consecutive year in 2019, according to a press statement sent to Business Malta. The Malta Pride 2019 will take place 6-15 September, with the iconic pride parade and street concert scheduled for 14 September in Valletta.

“At LeoVegas we are proud to be supporting the largest event of its kind in Malta. The main goal of this collaboration is to show LeoVegas’ commitment to embracing diversity and equality in our workforce” says the press statement by the company that has offices in Malta, Italy and Sweden.

The press statement adds that today LeoVegas has over 400 employees at the Malta office, sporting a truly diverse workforce — be it race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, ability, or sexual orientation —, which contributes to the overall success of the company.

“We are delighted to have LeoVegas supporting Malta Pride for the third year running,” said Clayton Mercieca, Community Manager of Allied Rainbow Communities

“Their strong commitment towards welcoming diversity in the workplace is a message that needs to be spread far and wide. In our work with the community, we have seen employers who were not as affirming and accepting, which led to employees’ wellbeing suffer and their motivation taking a dip as a result,” Mr Mercieca said. “Being simply tolerant is not enough,” he underscored.

Malta Pride is a week-long celebration with different activities, with the main parade and open-air free concert. This year’s theme will be “From Riots to Rainbows – 50 years since Stonewall”.
