52 years ago this month, members of the LGBTQ+ community rose together in response to a police raid of the Stonewall Inn. The Stonewall Riots, as these demonstrations are known, represented a coming-together of community and a catalytic event in the ongoing struggle for LGBTQ+ rights. And now, each June the community comes together in celebration of LGBTQ+ Pride.
In the spirit of inclusion and belonging along our DE&I journey, we are excited to highlight Pride Month in support of our LGBTQ+ members. We are also happy to announce the creation of a safe space for our LGBTQ+ members and allies to come together through our Community. We look forward to expanding our understanding of our LGBTQ+ member journeys and fostering a safe environment for connection, support and sharing.
