June 7, 2021Pride is a time to celebrate who you are and who you love -- yet around the world, many lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people do not have equal rights and are not free to express themselves.
As LGBTQ rights are challenged around the world, it’s more important than ever to send a strong message of support and to stand up for equality and free expression for everyone.
Linked in the image below, we've rounded up a few of our favorite educational resources and virtual/local events to share ways to celebrate all month long.
For nearly 100 years, Goodwill of Orange County has been an advocate for people facing barriers to employment. Helping our community and our Goodwill team find and access opportunity is a part of the fabric of our organization. As we look to the future and gaze inward at our own organizational culture, our commitment to advocacy continues with a sharp focus on inclusivity, diversity, equity and access. We will provide trainings, resources and opportunities to all team members to further our understanding and collective learnings in these areas. Our goal is to create a workplace culture where all team members, regardless of gender, race, age, disability, religion, sexual orientation or background, feel valued, respected and able to succeed.
