Sterling Celebrates Pride Month
Every June, cities across the United States – and around the world, adorn their streets with rainbow flags in support of Pride Month for the LGBTQIA+ community. Pride is a time where people of all walks of life come together to reflect, celebrate and honor the LGBTQIA+ community through parades, festivals and advocacy.
During the month of June, Sterling’s own social media profiles showcase a rainbow logo and PRIDE messaging in support of our LGBTQIA+ employees and the community at large. This may seem like a small gesture to some, but the impact of acceptance is limitless.
However, we acknowledge that embracing equality shouldn’t be limited to one month a year. According to the 2018 Corporate Equality Index by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, “…clearly enumerated non-discrimination protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity are essential to LGBTQ workforce equity and inclusion. These policies help to ensure: equal opportunity for all employees, diverse talent acquisition and retention for broader economic growth, and keeping the employer apace with changing legal and public opinion landscapes.”
Simply put, representation matters, and Sterling couldn’t agree more. Instead of flying the rainbow flag once a year, we choose to “fly our flag” year-round – from rainbow logos in June to corporate policies that contain inclusive language for Parental Leave, Bereavement, Anti-Harassment, and Anti-Sexual Harassment.
One of our core values at Sterling is It’s All About People. We care deeply for our clients and colleagues alike and we work together toward a common goal as a diverse workforce. Placing people first is at the core of our culture and we thank you for taking the time to celebrate the uniqueness and diversity of the LGBTQIA+ community; not only in the month of June but every day.
