Pride in Our Workplace

Amplifying LGBTQ+ Voices to Drive Positive Change

More than 75% of people believe that diversity and inclusion offers a competitive advantage and plenty of studies back them up. However, LGBTQ+ individuals are still under-represented at every level of management.

Pride in Our Workplace provides all LGBTQ+ professionals with ways to amplify their voices and create thriving workplace cultures. The business case for diversity and inclusion is stronger than ever. By centering the LGBTQ+ perspective within our most important conversations, we help LGBTQ+ professionals and allied businesses to drive positive change in the workplace.

Are you ready to drive positive change in your organization?

The Do’s and Dont’s of Trans Allyship

In May and June, we were joined by two panels of gender-diverse professionals and industry leaders to explore best practices in workplace inclusion. We learned that allyship is an ongoing practice of educating oneself, listening to understand the needs of others, and taking action to advocate for those in the community you’re trying to support. However we identify individually, allyship is something that we all must work towards together.

Balancing the Burden of Education with Trevor Boylston

As a panelist on the Learning from Lived Experience Panel, Trevor spoke to the challenges of existing as an out transgender man in professional spaces, as well as the opportunities for learning and change that can present themselves when you choose to share your identity with those around you.

Trans Workplace Inclusion Series – Recap and Resources

Drawing from the lived experience of trans professionals and industry leaders, PIOW’s Trans Workplace Inclusion Series explored the complexities of coming out and transitioning in professional spaces, strategies for seeking and signaling allyship, and the need to back inclusion policies with consistent trans-affirming practices.

What People Are Saying

“PIOW has set up an environment that truly brings about a level of genuine sharing, collaboration and candor among professionals in the virtual/in-person spaces we share. I benefit greatly from discussing challenges or solutions with colleagues across industry-lines because it offers me new ways of thinking and the ability to consider our work in multiple contexts. The quality of the dialogue in PIOW spaces is always impactful, and I will continue to be an active participant as a result.”
