Coffee and Conversation: Equity in the Workplace/Pride Month

Each year, LGBTQIA+ Pride Month is recognized in June. It’s an important month of recognition for the promotion of self-affirmation, dignity, equality, acceptance and increased visibility for members of the LGBTQIA+ community. It’s a time to celebrate and recognize the accomplishments of the LGBTQIA+ community, as well as a time to commemorate years of struggle for civil rights and the ongoing pursuit of equity.

During Pride Month, we see many companies making public gestures of support. Hundreds of major brands have become regular sponsors and supporters of annual Pride events, lending their platforms to support progress for the LGBTQIA+ community.

While there are visible signs of progress, and landmark advances have been made in marriage equality and workplace protections, many challenges continue to persist in the workplace for members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

Join us June 9 for Coffee and Conversation as we honor Pride Month and discuss the intentional and concerted efforts it takes to build an equitable and inclusive workplace that endures for all.

This event is free but registration is required.

With a capacity of 25 guests per session, attendees are grounded in community issues that create space for lively, highly engaged group discussion co-created and facilitated by community change catalysts, Kellen Nixon and Annetta Foard. Coffee & Conversation is a safe and trusting space for all to lean confidently into their lived experiences and cultural identities.
