Pride Month is celebrated in June to honor and promote the visibility, rights, and achievements of the LGBTQ+ community. The month-long observance originated from the historical events known as the Stonewall Riots in 1969. Pride Month serves as a platform for LGBTQ+ individuals and allies to come together, raise awareness, celebrate diversity, and advocate for equal rights - and we do so as well at Bertling Logistics - not only in June, but always.
These initiatives foster unity, encourages acceptance, and challenges stereotypes and prejudice. It is a powerful reminder of the ongoing fight for LGBTQ+ rights and promotes a more inclusive and accepting world.
To show our commitment and support to the LGBTQ+ community we have encouraged all offices to participate in activities related to Pride Month. More information and pictures will be shared soon.
Until then, let's keep promoting and celebrating inclusivity, diversity and equality every day, in everything we do.
