our new werkplacePolicy
With legislative attacks against the LGBTQ+ community sweeping the nation, we’re letting it be known that our workplace will always be a safe haven for self expression.
“Work is a Drag” is an official Cornett policy that welcomes and encourages any employee who wishes to dress in drag at the office.
To commemorate the unprecedented policy addition, we enlisted the help of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 11 & All Stars 6 contestant Scarlet Envy, a Kentucky native who graduated with a degree in Advertising Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology. Renowned local drag queens Jenna Jive, Kali Dupree, and Uma Jewels were also recruited to give two Cornett employees a transformative drag makeover.
“Creative expression is at the heart of what we do,” said Cornett President & Owner Christy Hiler. “Cornett is committed to being a workplace open to every race, gender, sexual preference, age and ability. This policy is really just about respecting our employees’ freedom to be authentically themselves.”
