Bias, insensitivity, prejudice, and fear has affected members of the LGBTQIA+ community throughout our history and has kept many from showing their authentic selves in the workplace.

Pride Month and the Victoria Pride Festival create opportunities for visibility, collaboration, ongoing conversation, and celebration as we work towards equity for all people of diverse gender and sexual identities.
