Belonging is being accepted without fear or judgment.
Why is it important for companies to commit to Pride initiatives?
“It’s important for companies to commit to Pride initiatives because it shows the genuine care and focus on the well-being, identity, and diversity of your employees. Upon joining WSP as part of the LGBTQIA+ community, it’s difficult to openly share your true, authentic self due to fears of judgement, rejection, and false assumptions. Celebrating Pride shows commitment to providing the inclusive and welcoming environment for LGBTQIA+ colleagues to thrive and feel at ease, but also provide the opportunity to educate all employees on its history and understanding its diverse communities today.”
