Kicking Off LGBT Month with CEB Pride

8 June, 2015

Some of the latest data from the Human Rights Campaign states that 53 percent of the LGBT community hide who they are while at work. While this statistic is troubling, it is also a challenge to each of us to think about what we can do to foster an inclusive work environment. In 2014, we launched a new employee affinity group, CEB Pride. Our goal? To promote an inclusive workplace for our own global employee network—regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

CEB Pride also provides opportunities for education, community outreach, talent recruitment, and networking. From new associates to our corporate leadership team, the support our group receives is overwhelmingly positive. Public support, from our colleagues and straight allies, matters in a deep and profound way to members of the LGBT community. But the support doesn’t stop there.

This June, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) will deliver a decision whether states can prohibit same sex marriage or if it’s protected by the Constitution. We’re proud to say that CEB was one of the 379 organizations that filed an amicus briefing with SCOTUS in support of marriage equality. Our very own HR research was quoted in it.

In the US, June is officially designated as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month, or LGBT Pride Month. Throughout the world, celebrations and festivities are planned to bring recognition and awareness to LGBT issues in our communities. CEB Pride is thrilled to take part in several festivities in Washington, DC, which is home to one of our major office locations.

CEB Pride welcomes ALL and looks forward to making a continued impact not only here at CEB, but within our communities as well. Regardless of your sexual orientation or gender identity, we’d love for your support, if you stand for equality and respect. If you’re a CEBer reading this blog post and want to get involved, attend an event, or receive our newsletter, e-mail us at CEBPride.

Happy LGBT Pride Month Everyone!
