We are partnering with LGBTQ ERGs all across the country to host in-person events to celebrate Pride and more importantly support your Queer teammates this Pride Season.

These events are for LGBTQ leaders and allies, however, when you partner with us, we help you center LGBTQ women and non-binary leaders so these events inevitably are more representative across the entire LGBTQ spectrum.

Please note it can be an external venue too. It does not have to be at your office.

We also have other partnership opportunities available. Let’s chat. Click below to learn more.
