Women at Work and D&I Present Learn and Lunch Pride Celebration
Women at Work and the D&I Committee joined forces this year and co-presented a Learn and Lunch to celebrate Pride on June 23rd. Aiming for a casual, relaxed event, we encouraged Net at Work employees to order lunch from a local LGBTQA+ restaurant, and then gather on Teams to learn about important dates, events, and cultural happenings within the community.
Thank you to all our presenters for your contributions and insight. We appreciated the attendees’ comments and interactions as we celebrated 150 years of LGBTQA+ history paying tribute to the past, present, and future. From historical timelines, important leaders, and the arts/literature, it was a fun lunch with so much to learn. We even had a surprise video introduction supporting a local drag queen performer adding fun and flair to the lunch.
We hope if you’re in New York you get a chance to visit the Stonewall Inn Monument dedicated to the those that paved the way and continue to make a difference. Another important fact we all reviewed is that there is still work to do—supporting organizations that have a positive representation in the community and spreading the message of love and acceptance.
A recording of our Learn & Lunch has been made available for Net at Work employees in the Resources tile of the Women at Work SharePoint portal.
