This year, New York City Pride announced that the theme of Pride Month was “Strength in Solidarity.” In a time when there is an increase of dangers faced by the LGBTQIA+ community, this theme highlights how important it is to remain resilient, highlight the cultural significance of the LGBTQIA+ community, and acknowledge “every individual’s uniqueness and ability to wield tremendous power when united with others.” 

Uplifting and supporting one another is imperative. And, this month, we’ve featured different stories on the Fairygbodboss blog about how individuals are doing just that. Companies, too, can play an important role in showing solidarity with and supporting the LGBTQIA+ community. Today, we’re highlighting eight companies that are doing just that!

Alight Solutions

This Pride Month, Alight stands together as a united force, celebrating diversity, equality, and inclusion. They know that this month holds immense significance, not only as a colorful festivity of the LGBTQIA+ community, but also as a powerful reminder of the ongoing fight for equality and inclusion. At Alight, they believe in creating an environment where everyone feels safe, valued, and respected for who they are.

As part of this, their amazing LGBTQIA+ Employee Resource Group, Alight’s Pride Professional Network (PPN), together with Alight’s Inclusion and Diversity team, prepared a global program to ensure that Alight as a whole gets a chance to celebrate, get involved, show support, and seize this opportunity to learn, grow, and honor the rich tapestry of their diverse workforce through a variety of events and activities, as well as through providing meaningful resources. Alight is committed to creating a culture of safe spaces for all colleagues, celebrating diversity, and celebrating you. Happy Pride!
