Celebrating Pride Week in 2020

Pride Week is coming up. As a company whose mission is to nurture and create happiness in the workplace, we continue to love, uplift, and support this amazing community. 💪🏳️‍🌈

If you’re a company looking for things to do to empower your LGBT employees, we listed three important things you can start with:

Hold A Sensitivity Training To Build Stronger Allies

This month can be the perfect opportunity to bring in an expert who can train everyone in a code of conduct that better supports the office’s LGBTQ community.

We all have our implicit biases, and we can’t address the barriers LGBTQ individuals face if we don’t acknowledge them. It’s up to us to reach out to these resources and to experts to educate us and to inform us how to be more inclusive and respectful.

Organizations like The Safe Zone Project even offer free online training tools which you can check out here.

You can also check out the Human Rights Campaign's map that highlights the policies and laws in each state, so you can participate in conversations that help to have the ongoing LQBT issues heard.

Knowing these policies and laws will also help you advocate for your LGBTQ+ coworkers. 

Host A Lively Lunch

Involve some delicious food! Here's where you can let your culinary and creativity soar. Gather your team - whether or not they identify as part of the LGBT community - for a lunch that celebrates diversity and honors inclusion.

Bonus points for anyone who’ll wear anything that's red/orange/yellow/green/blue/violet! Our team at Confetti put together bites and cocktails that incorporate the colors into the foods you'll serve, like cute fruit kabobs or a seven-layer cake. You can even serve a non-alcoholic rainbow cocktail that will be sure to please.

Hold this lunch/party with the intention to give a platform to your LGBT employees. Ask how you can be a better coworker and how the office culture can be more inclusive.

Adopt A Cause

It doesn’t stop today or this month. Continue to get involved or donate. Below are some of the resources you can look into as a team and as an organization set on being better allies:

  • PFLAG. National organization for LGBTQ+ people, their parents and families, and allies.

You can email plan@withconfetti.com for more information on interesting ways your team can give to your charity of choice while having fun!

Love Will Always Win 🏳️‍🌈,

The Confetti Team
