Siam Piwat reinforces its policy on diversity and equality, fully supporting Pride Month activities.


Siam Piwat Group, a leading real estate and retail developer, the owner and operator of Siam Paragon, Siam Center, and Siam Discovery, and a joint venture partner of ICONSIAM, ICS and Siam Premium Outlets Bangkok announces its support for the policy of Diversity, Equality & Inclusion in Pride Month of LGBT people or LGBTQIAN + with the development of an "All are welcome" management system for everyone to show their full potential despite the difference in gender and concretely reflect the goals of equality and diversity.

Mrs. Chadatip Chutrakul, Chief Executive Officer Siam Piwat Group, stated that "We have been advocating for gender equality for a very long time. Siam Piwat creates possibilities because we grow by providing opportunities to others. We have done business with the intention of creating shared value that is not confined to conducting business, but Siam Piwat is a place where everyone can share their experiences. To serve our clients, society, and communities with equality, it is critical to promote equitable opportunities for all groups of people, on which we have collaborated for many years with UNDP.

Furthermore, Siam Piwat is committed to transforming all group settings into community centers and to honoring people of various backgrounds, including gender, ethnicity, and health. We support and generate value for all differences, diversity, equality, and inclusion, which is a principle to which we have consistently adhered. It can be seen in the design of Siam Piwat Group’s shopping centers under the Universal Design concept, which is the design and development of infrastructure and diverse services for all people."

The group’s shopping centers have recently stated their stance on diversity and equality. The Siam Center DiversCity Building, which places importance on diversity , is Thailand's first shopping center that collaborates with the United Nations Development Programme Thailand (UNDP Thailand), a global organization dedicated to improving people's lives through good governance in all aspects.

Siam Piwat Group takes part in the "Bangkok Pride 2023" activities on the occasion of Pride Month in June 2023, as follows:
