Pride Month takes place in June to celebrate the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and related 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 place for every person to be their authentic selves.
In this Meeting in a Box, we provide a timeline of LGBTQ+ history in the U.S. and facts and figures concerning LGBTQ+ Americans. We also examine steps companies can take to promote LGBTQ+ inclusivity and belonging at work and acknowledge LGBTQ+ people in the political sphere.
Share this document with your colleagues to further your team’s cultural competence education on the LGBTQ+ community.
