Why you should be celebrating Pride in the workplace

Increase inclusivity
By celebrating the LGBTQIA+ members of your team, you’ll be inclusive of everyone, regardless of their orientation. 

Consumers hold businesses accountable
And not only will you do and feel good by celebrating Pride this June, but your clients will thank you for it. If you’re genuinely inclusive, 70% of companies have reported better sales and new consumer opportunities thanks to their openness and acceptance.

Connectivity and safety 
More importantly though, if you decide to celebrate Pride in the workplace this June, you’ll be sending the message to everyone (internally and externally) that you are a safe place to work for those in the LGBTQIA+ community.  

Remembering the past 
We have to remember that Pride isn’t just about celebrating the present community but it’s also for remembering past struggles. It’s important not to forget how far we’ve come in our inclusivity journey. By celebrating Pride in the workplace, you’re allowing an open discussion of remembrance.
