marriage equality

 

One of the core values of Solar Analytics is that we put people first. We celebrate diversity in our staff, customers and partners and recognise that our individual differences create a richer whole. Our workplace will always be a place where people are treated equally, regardless of sexuality, gender, race or religion. Discrimination will never be tolerated.

 

As a certified B Corp, Solar Analytics believes that corporations are an integral part of our society, and have a responsibility to speak out on important social issues. We as a business stand for more than just maximising profit. We believe that adding our calm and reasoned voices to the public debate contributes to establishing and maintaining the society we wish to live in.

 

Marriage equality will not change anything for the vast majority of Australians, but will make a profound difference to the status and dignity of many.

We believe our laws should reflect these values of which we are most proud. We also believe that all Australians should have the same opportunities for love, commitment and happiness. It’s time for all Australians to be treated equally under the law.

We support the right of same-sex couples to marry and we support the right of children with same-sex parents to feel that the love in their family is as real and legitimate as in any other.  

 

We support the right of all of our staff, customers and partners to be valued as equally in our nation as they are in our company.

 

Not everyone will see this in the same way we do. That is part of the diversity we celebrate. But we hope that our support for marriage equality will encourage others to do the same, and we are confident that the values we stand for will ensure that everyone is treated with respect and dignity.
