#InclusionInProgress

Let's keep the wheel of progress turning

There have been decades of progress in equality and recognition for the LGBTQIA+ community. Pride 2024 is another celebration of LGBTQIA+ awareness and integration.

And yet, the community still faces discrimination every day. 100% acceptance is still work in progress. We help draw attention to this fact with the spinning rainbow wheel.

The ‘inclusion in progress’ wheel is the metaphor we chose for our Pride Month campaign, as a symbol of progress we are all making in truly including the LGBTQIA+ community, and the need to accelerate this progress as well.

The wheel will keep spinning as long as there is work to be done to build a truly inclusive world.

“I celebrate Pride ’24 as an ally. I call out microaggressions and discriminatory behavior. And we all need to do more - we must step forward, be active in our support of our LGBTQIA+ colleagues, and make sure our workplaces are safe spaces for everyone.”

“I celebrate Pride ’24 because living openly and authentically drives better relationships and higher levels of success. Unfortunately, not all LGBTQIA+ people feel safe enough to come out, even in organizations with clear DE&I policies and frequent diversity celebrations.”

“I celebrate Pride ’24 with the memory of the understanding and acceptance I received from my colleagues when I first wore a sari to work. I wish the attire policy, across organizations, was more inclusive in tune with the greater awareness that has come to us all with time.”

“As I celebrate Pride ’24, it warms my heart to see younger generations embrace LGBTQIA+ identities so openly. The journey isn’t over – there is lack of acceptance in rural communities and it’s frustrating to see the law lag societal progress.”

“I celebrate Pride ’24 and I’m happy that I’m not judged for my appearance. But I wish there was more awareness - about the correct usage of people’s pronouns, for starters.”

“I see Pride ’24 as a celebration of my strength and who I am as a person. It gives me courage. The first step for further progress, I think, is to go beyond stereotypes and educate all of us about the LGBTQIA+ community.”

“Like everything that fosters inclusion and affirmation, Pride is a huge contributor to collaboration and creativity. We should rejoice in differences and celebrate them. Managers have the responsibility of being self-aware of their biases and encouraging meaningful conversations around them.”
