AlixPartners celebrates Pride Month 2018
AlixPartners is proud to participate in Pride Month, an annual celebration held worldwide every June to recognize the LGBTQ community and its history. Our PrideMatters ERG planned an exciting series of activities across our global offices to celebrate. Below are a few highlights.
AlixPartners sponsors Pride & Prejudice Summit 2018
We started slightly early, but kicked-off Pride Month with our sponsorship of The Economist's Pride & Prejudice conference, a one-day event in Hong Kong, London, and New York. This year's summit focused on how we can turn the conversation around LGBT diversity and inclusion into meaningful action.
Harvey Milk (and cookies)
Across the globe, staff from AlixPartners celebrated the start of Pride Month with in-office exhibitions highlighting the life and work of LGBT rights activist, Harvey Milk.
Pulse Flag Unveiling
During our visit to the Pulse Nightclub last year, members from AlixPartners signed a rainbow flag, which we framed for our Southfield office, becoming our first LGBTQ specific artwork, prominently displayed in a public area. We also made another donation to the onePULSE Foundation, in furtherance of the permanent museum and memorial.
Americas/Asia Team Meeting
Members from all US chapters of our PrideMatters ERG coordinated several events during our annual Americas firm Team Meeting in Chicago, taking time to pose for a group photo in our new PrideMatters T-shirts.
Members from our Dallas and New York chapters coordinated volunteer activities with Resource Center Dallas and Gay Men’s Health Crisis.
Opening doors through our PrideMatters ERG
To continue to celebrate the firm’s diversity and acceptance of all LGBTQ employees during Pride Month, we conducted a series of interviews with a few of PrideMatters’ members and allies to learn more about their passions, how AlixPartners supports PrideMatters’ mission, and advice for other organizations who are looking to develop their own LGBTQ programs.
