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.

The PIOW team has had a busy first quarter. Learn more about what we’ve been up to and what our organization has planned for the future in our April newsletter.
How can individuals begin to address racial inequities at work? What steps can we take to ensure the creation of more equitable spaces for all employees in our organizations? In June and October of 2020, Pride in Our Workplace posed these questions to community leaders in the two-part virtual panel series titled, The Intersection of LGBTQ+ Equality and Racial Justice.
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.

“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.”
