Today marks the first day of LGBTQIA+ Pride Month! We're looking forward to this opportunity to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community, as well as focus on making our workplace a safe and inclusive environment for everyone.
LGBTQIA+ refers to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, and Asexual people collectively. The purpose of this commemorative month is to recognize the impact that LGBTQIA+ individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.
Here's what we have planned for Pride Month:
While LGBTIA+ Pride Month takes place through the end of the month, our efforts to advocate and support all employees are ongoing. No one should have to change who they are when they come to work – we want all employees to feel free to be their authentic selves. Our goal is to foster a culture where it is safe to be yourself and talk about the challenges you might be facing.
As always, we encourage an open dialogue on our team, so we are prepared to observe, listen, and learn how we can better support you! Let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
We've put together a special Pride Zoom background to celebrate together and show our support and allyship!

June is LGBTQIA+ Pride Month, honoring the diverse sexual and gender identities within the community. It's a time to celebrate the strides made in LGBTQ rights and the contributions of LGBTQ individuals to society. Pride Month's origins trace back to the Stonewall riots of 1969, which were a turning point in the movement for LGBTQ rights, marked by the first Gay Pride march the following year.
Pride Month is crucial in the workplace for promoting diversity and inclusion, showing support for LGBTQ employees, and acknowledging the ongoing struggle for equality. Celebrating at work can help foster a more open and accepting company culture, encouraging employees to be their authentic selves and raise awareness of LGBTQ issues.
