This June, Agoro Carbon Alliance is proud to celebrate Pride Month. Agoro Carbon is a workplace where we respect the diversity and authenticity of our employees. At Agoro Carbon we will host Pride month events and take action to continue to foster an inclusive, educated and welcoming work space.
Pride Month is a dedicated time for the LGBTQ+ community and allies to come together in celebration, solidarity, activism, reflection, and support of all LGBTQ+ people (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer). Why June? The month of June was originally selected to celebrate Pride to pay homage to the Stonewall Inn uprising in June 1969 in New York City, which helped ignite the gay rights movement. During Pride Month, we recognize the resilience and determination of the many individuals who are fighting to live freely and authentically.
While a parade or march are often part of Pride celebrations, there’s more to this month than parades! At Agoro Carbon, employees are encouraged to take part and action to celebrate Pride by:
- Sharing their pronouns
- Participating in our Pride music playlist to celebrate LGBTQ+ artists and music that embodies the idea of Pride
- Examining our internal processes to ensure gender-inclusive forms of address
Pride Month is a meaningful time to celebrate but also learn about the historic and current challenges of the LGBTQ+ community.
Happy Pride from Agoro Carbon Alliance!
