Pride Month takes place in June to celebrate the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and related (LGBTQ) communities, the diversity of identities and their fight toward equal rights around the world. During this time, we spotlight and pay homage to the successes of LGBTQ people, the injustices they’ve overcome and their continued efforts to make the world a safe and welcoming place for every person to be themselves.
In this Meeting in a Box, we provide a timeline of LGBTQ history in the U.S. plus facts and figures outlining demographic, workplace and other information concerning LGBTQ Americans. We also include a primer on LGBTQ terminology, pronoun usage and other essential concepts everyone working in corporate America should know. Share this document with your colleagues to further your team’s cultural competence education on the LGBTQ+ community.
