Corporate support has played a crucial role in the progress of LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer) rights over the past two decades. Specifically, more companies celebrate Pride Month as a public gesture of support every June.
With that said, some members of the LGBTQ+ community still struggle with feeling accepted in their place of work. Leaders must address the underlying issues, such as fear and bullying, lack of social acceptance, and a need for visible allyship and DE&I policies.
People spend the majority of their time working. Pride matters not only in our personal lives, but also professional.
