adidas Group at the Portland Pride Festival

adidas Group at the Portland Pride Festival

Having lived in Portland for 10 years now, I have participated in the Portland Pride every year.  This year it was something truly special to represent the adidas family with its newly formed LGBTQ group participating in its first community event at the Portland Pride Festival on Saturday and Sunday, June 14th and June 15th. We formed the US adidas Group team with the desire to represent diversity and inclusion not only at work but also within the Portland community. The support and adulation received from the community during the Pride Festival was overwhelming and truly encouraging for us.

Tattoos at the adidas Group; inked up and proud! (Part 2)

Tattoos at the adidas Group; inked up and proud! (Part 2)

In part one of our two-part series, we interviewed three of our employees and learned about their views on the acceptance of their tattoos in the adidas Group workplace.

To kick off part two of our series, I wanted to find out from a seasoned adidas Group veteran if there was similar sentiment. This led me to Janette, Global Operations Technical Manager, and over seven years at the adidas Group. I asked Janette if she thought she might not get the job because of her tattoos. Janette: “This definitely crossed my mind, but I decided to get my sleeve after already being with the adidas Group for seven years and didn’t feel my tattoos would be a factor in my future endeavors at the adidas Group.” It was quite the opposite of what I would expect. Janette felt even more comfortable with her visible ink as she continued to grow within our organization.
