TORONTO, ON – Human Resources Director Canada reports that Molson Coors Beverage Company has given its Canadian employees access to a Gender Affirmation Benefits program that will cover the costs of “masculinisation or feminisation treatments and procedures for their gender transition surgery.”
According to Michael Nordman, senior community affairs manager of Molson Coors, any Canadian employee or dependent who has been approved for gender affirmation surgery will be eligible for these benefits.
“Molson Coors is committed to building a fully inclusive culture that allows people to bring their authentic self to work,” said Nordman. “These are not just words to us – we back up our commitment with actions and offering gender affirmation benefits to employees is one way we’re proud to do so. Our first value as a company is to put people first, so offering gender affirming benefits is a natural step in honouring this to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace.”
“We want our team to be as diverse as those who enjoy our products all over the country,” he continued. “This represents one more step in part of a longer DEI journey and we want our employees and our consumers to see our company and industry in a different way where everyone has a sense of belonging and are welcomed.”
This announcement comes soon after Molson Coors was given a score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index in recognition of its corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality.
