Our Pride employee network group (ENG) promotes an LGBTQ+ inclusive culture and empowers its members to be their authentic selves through leadership education, business development training, networking opportunities and LBGTQ+ community activities. Pride works to enhance understanding of issues faced in the workplace by LGBTQ+ individuals, and finds avenues to model “bringing your whole self to work.” The network sponsors activities throughout the year that are open to all, and its Pride Month event provides opportunities for employees and RSM leaders to share their coming-out stories. Pride also supports recruiting and hiring efforts by working with LGBTQ+ groups on college and university campuses.
Every year, we participate in the Out & Equal Workplace Summit, which features workshops, expert panels, networking mixers and plenaries with keynotes from prominent LGBTQ+ and ally leaders. Through Out & Equal, Pride members have access to executive leadership development, training and consultation, and professional networking opportunities that build inclusive and welcoming work environments.
