Gap Inc. is a place where people can be who they are and do what they love. It’s a place where pride meets passion. This year, to celebrate Pride and the LGBTQ community, we asked our employees what drives them, what inspires them, what makes them proud to be who they are – not just inside of our office doors. Because we know that pride comes in all shapes, sizes, and personalities, and goes beyond what we do here at Gap Inc. We wear our pride by being uniquely us, and by celebrating our passions and the things that makes us who we are, in everything we do. #WearYourPride
For Simon O’Mahony, Senior Manager of Talent Acquisition at Banana Republic, being behind the camera lens is being at home. It’s where he can soak up the world around him, and find reminders of the inspiration life brings, in even the most hidden of places. With his camera, he decides what’s beautiful and what moves him, and how to express who he truly is. Meet Simon, and see where his pride meets passion. #WearYourPride
For Kimiko, Senior Manager of Strategic Projects in Old Navy Store Operations, cooking is about curiosity. It’s where she can be her most creative, most experimental – it’s where failure isn’t just ok, it’s usually a necessary (and delicious) part of the process. When she’s cooking, she’s not only feeding her soul, she’s feeding her confidence to be who she is. Meet Kimiko, and see where her pride meets passion. #WearYourPride
Makenzie, Systems Analyst for Gap Inc., is no stranger to making an entrance. His love of dance drives him, brings him energy, gives him confidence. Most importantly, it’s one of the things that makes him proud to be who he is, not just here at Gap Inc., but every day. Meet Makenzie, and see where his pride meets passion.
