We’re feeling a little extra pep in our step right now because Pride is in full swing! But don’t let that stop you from waving your rainbow flags all year round; at Canary, we’re all about Pride 365 days a year. While we’re always ready to sport some colorful rainbow themed swag, let’s not forget the importance of the Pride movement and proudly showing your true colors.
Every June, the world joins together to recognize the struggles and achievements of the LGBTQ community and celebrate diversity, inclusion and accepting each other as we are. While most Pride parades and celebrations around the world have been canceled or postponed this year, that doesn’t mean the celebrating stops. Let’s use that extra energy we would have spent singing and dancing in the streets and put it towards being champions for the LGBTQ community!
While society as a whole has come a long way since the birth of the gay rights movement, we’ve still got more milestones to hit for LGBTQ rights. And just like it’s important to celebrate diversity and inclusion in our communities, it’s also important to make sure we’re doing our part to ensure a diverse and inclusive workplace.
Now one more time for the people in the back…
We know just how important inclusion in a workplace is and we’ve always believed in celebrating people as they come with a welcoming environment that encourages being bold and being you. We recognize we have a part to play in creating inclusive work environments and we vow to always create that space.
So, even though the parades may have stopped (for now) – let’s continue to do our part and keep the Pride momentum going! Put on those rainbow high socks, turn your speakers up use your voice for social change, and continue to come as you are 365 days a year!
Let your true colors shine.
