This June, Ross & Baruzzini honored Pride Month! This important milestone recognizes the lasting impact of LGBTQIA+ individuals and allies in U.S history and across the world.
To show support and raise awareness for the LGBTQIA+ community, our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) committee invited our employees to take part in the R&B Rainbow Run | Walk | Bike for Pride event last month.
Employees were encouraged to wear colors from the Pride flag and share their workout photos:
Participants also earned points for our company health and wellness program, Vitality.
“Over twenty employees joined the 2021 R&B Rainbow Run | Walk | Bike for Pride Month in June showing off their athletic achievements, earning Vitality points, and supporting the LGBTQIA+ community,” said Mike Maselli, DE&I Committee Co-Chair and Technology Principal. “No world records were broken this year but with a little training, anything is possible. Thanks to all who participated and took one small step, or several thousand, to improve our company culture and inclusion.”
Although Pride month is over, we’re excited to continue our support for LGBTQIA+ and other global communities. Follow Ross & Baruzzini on LinkedIn to join the ongoing dialogue.
