MX Player wins bronze for LGBT+ inclusion at IWEI 2022

MX Player launched #PressPlayForAll in June 2022 for its 100K+ LinkedIn family.


Mumbai: MX Player has been recognised as a top employer at the India Workplace Equality Index (IWEI) 2022.

MX Player has been honoured with the bronze badge, which recognises the development of inclusive policies and the initiation of activities that promote LGBT+ inclusion at work.

MX Player has worked consciously to create a work environment in which all people are truly welcomed, valued, and respected—for all of who they are.

Considering diversity and inclusion to be critical pillars for an organisation's success, MX Player launched #PressPlayForAll in June 2022 for its 100K+ LinkedIn family.

With gender-neutral medical and leave policies, attracting LGBTQ+ candidates through its LinkedIn page, and using social media platforms to lead conversations on LGBTQ+ equality, the brand has also actively engaged with the LGBTQ+ community at the grassroots level.

Speaking on being awarded the bronze badge at IWEI 2022, MX Player CEO Karan Bedi said, "We are humbled to receive this recognition and acknowledge the contribution of every stakeholder in this journey. At MX Player, we have always invested in pioneering initiatives and introduced policies that accept and cherish all employees, thus helping to build a progressive work environment. The IWEI 2022 recognition is a testament to the people-first culture that MX Player has built over the years."

Commenting on making the workplace diverse and inclusive, MX Player Global HR Head Anjani B. Kuumar said, "As an organisation that is deeply invested in the well-being of its employees, our leadership team is committed to building a healthy and safe workplace culture, and inclusion is one of our top priorities. For a young organisation like ours, this recognition by IWEI will further propel us to strengthen our inclusion policies and initiatives."

IWEI is India's first comprehensive benchmarking tool for employers to track their progress toward lesbian, gay, bi, and trans (LGBT+) workplace inclusion. The index assesses nine areas: policies and benefits, employee lifecycle, employee network group, allies and role models, senior leadership, monitoring, procurement, community engagement, and other work.

MX Player also participated in Pride Circle's Ally Challenge 2022, pledging to be active allies and inviting all employees to participate by sharing their pledges, in order to encourage and lead the workforce toward being allies.
