Pride-Out-Of-The-Box: An ERG Guide to Celebrating Pride Virtually in 2021

Pride Month itself was born out of struggle. From the countless, fearless LGBTQ advocates who across decades refused to live inauthentically in the face of discrimination, stigma, and violence, to the uprisings at Stonewall and Compton’s Cafeteria, to celebrations of life and hope amidst the AIDS crisis, each one building a foundation for a powerful, long-lasting global movement of authenticity and connection for the LGBTQ community. Pride was born out of resilience and courage in the face of adversity. 

The following Out & Equal guide provides a set of ideas, tools and engagement points for Employee Resource Groups everywhere to utilize in building and supporting virtual Pride engagements this year.
