Monki HQ is now LGBTQ certified

Founded in 1950, the non-profit organisation works on projects to support LGBTQ rights across the world.

For the past three months, employees at Monki’s head office have been participating in educational workshops taught by RFSL to learn more about norms and the impact they have on the working conditions and health of LGBTQ people.

Monki hopes the work at the head office will have a positive impact across its entire brand.

Lea Rytz Goldman, managing director of Monki, said: “At Monki, empowering people to be themselves is one of our core missions. That being said, we know there is always room for improvement. Our LBGTQ certification is just one step towards a kinder future for all.”

Gustaf Hedman, director of education at RFS, added: “Monki is also the first fashion brand to be LGBTQ certified by RFSL, which marks a great change towards a more inclusive industry and we are very proud to be part of Monki’s journey.”
