A look back at Blackbaud’s celebration of PRIDE month
June marks a time when people across the world celebrate PRIDE month—a time to recognize the change agents who are pushing for equal rights for the LGBTQIA+ community.
This year, we released a beautiful new theme, Human: Our Common Thread, which is Blackbaud's representation of the beauty of how we are all human and connected. For PRIDE, this design reflects how we are connected across sexual orientation and gender identity/expression and is a celebration of the LGBTQIA+ community.
Throughout the month, we also shared new ways to engage and empower our employees by sharing educational and informative resources that were made available to our entire global workforce as well as introducing PRIDE-themed Microsoft Teams backgrounds and t-shirts with our new design.
Our employee-led PRIDE group was actively involved in leading engagement activities throughout the month for their fellow employees, which included hosting a virtual happy hour, coordinating a community service project, creating a PRIDE Spotify playlist, hosting a guest speaker, wearing the colors of the PRIDE flag, and so much more!
We believe it is important to work as one toward equality every day of the year. We have come so far in our journey, and Blackbaud continues to evolve through learning and inclusivity for all.
