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.
News and Events
We spotlight important, often unheard points of view on today’s issues and provide businesses with the tools they need to grow and thrive. We will be posting details about our next event soon. Until then, check out our existing resources below.
Recent Event: Cope & Hope Virtual Networking
During our recent event, attendees shared their strategies for coping, staying hopeful, and centering racial equity.
From the Blog
During February’s Cope & Hope virtual event, PIOW President John Basile had the opportunity to interview Cogo Labs’ Braden Marstaller. Although Braden is still early in his career, he is already leading his ERG, pushing innovative DEI solutions, and championing LGBTQ+ inclusion at work.
Pride in Our Workplace invited LGBTQ+ and allied professionals to share their strategies for coping, staying hopeful, and continuing to advocate for more equitable spaces.
The PIOW team is excited to share our first official newsletter. Last year, we gathered DEI executives, HR professionals, and ERG representatives to share best practices in leadership, center LGBTQ+ perspectives on timely issues, and build a capacity for growth and understanding within the organizations we serve.
Want to keep the LGBTQ+ perspective centered in your inbox?
“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.”
