Possibly the most diverse team in the LEGO Group
Michal is a shift leader at our factory in the Czech Republic. He has been at the LEGO Group for over eight years and proudly states that he has the most diverse team in production. “I have colleagues with different nationalities – Czechs, Serbs, Azerbaijanis, Ukrainians, Croats and Slovaks – with different backgrounds, identities and ages, and they’re all truly role modeling inclusivity.”
From a young age, Michal never hid that he was gay, but he chose not to make it part of this introduction when meeting new people. “Because I don’t think it’s important and it unnecessarily contributes to biases. The fact that I am gay doesn’t really tell you anything about me, just like being blonde doesn’t make you an airhead, as some jokes claim,” he says with a twinkle in his eye.
