LGBTQ+ at Colt

What’s the great thing about people? We’re all different, we're all unique, we all have our own story to tell. Our life experiences are what make us diverse. So, we’re opening up.
Inclusion and diversity is the belief that every single individual matters. And that’s why by opening up and sharing our stories, we can learn celebrate difference and uniqueness that bit more.
