In honor of Pride Month, which is the month of June, Protiviti offices will host events to show our support for the LGBTQ community. Kicking us off, is our Salt Lake City office!
This past Friday, our Salt Lake City office kicked off Pride Month by hosting a Pride Party! The party was very timely as May 31st to June 4th is Utah Pride weekend, which includes a festival and parade in the streets of downtown Salt Lake. The local Protiviti Diversity and Inclusion committee planned this event to recognize the exciting statewide occasion and bring LGBTQ awareness to our office community.
At the Pride Party, a history board was created and displayed to show the office how far the LGBTQ civil rights fight has come and what work is still left to accomplish.
The Salt Lake Pride Party is the first of many events planned at Protiviti this month and throughout the rest of 2017. Over the course of the next few months, we will be highlighting some of these different events and introducing you to some of our #PROpride teammates. These spotlights align with our strategic cornerstone of having a diverse and inclusive workforce.
Last month, Dallas Senior Consultant Jonathan Tellez had the opportunity to represent Protiviti at the inaugural Corporate Equality Index Awards. This awards ceremony was meant to honor the firms that received a perfect score of 100% on the 2017 Corporate Equality Index (CEI). Efforts put forth by Protiviti in 2016 contributed to our parent company, Robert Half International, receiving a perfect score.
Jonathan has this to say about the event, “I am honored and humbled to be part of a company that not only strives for equality, but represents part of the companies leading the nationwide movement for LGBTQ equality.” He continued, “Receiving a 100% on the Corporate Equality Index from the Human Rights Campaign is evidence of Protiviti and Robert Half leadership’s hard work and dedication to LGBTQ equality”.
The various events planned this year continuously supports our goal of getting another perfect CEI score. We hope you enjoy the updates to follow and learn from our future Pride blogs to come and remember, love has no labels!
