We want to first wish everyone a happy Pride month!
June serves as an important moment to honor the contributions and legacy of the LGBTQIA+ community and all its members in the fight for equity, with Pride month’s origins stemming from the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City led by Black and Latinx transgender women who resisted widespread discrimination and police brutality. While honoring LGBTQIA+ trail blazers from the past and present is important this month, we must also remember the importance of consistent allyship and showing up for the LGBTQIA+ community year-round.
Recognizing our responsibility as PR practitioners to engage in the most inclusive practices and ways of thinking, we’re excited to announce our partnership with Reimagine Gender this year, starting in Pride month. Reimagine Gender helps companies, organizations, families and more expand their understanding of gender — so they can help their communities thrive.
We’re working with Reimagine Gender to help our community understand how gender impacts our lives, ways of thinking, and self-expression. We will also provide tangible actions for PR professionals to think and counsel beyond the binary, while creating a more inclusive environment for employees and clients alike. This content is designed for you to share with clients and others in your community throughout Pride month.Stay tuned for more learnings and inspiration to come!
