Pride Employee Network Group
Making RSM the employer of choice for LGBT+ professionals and allies
DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
Pride works to enhance understanding of issues faced in the workplace by LGBT+ employees, 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 LGBT+ groups on university campuses.
RSM is a premier sponsor of Out & Equal, an organization dedicated to achieving lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender workplace equality. 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. RSM ambassadors attend Out & Equal’s annual Workplace Summit which features workshops, expert panels, networking mixers and plenaries with keynotes from prominent LGBT+ and ally leaders. RSM is also a proud team sponsor at the Gay Polo League tournament.
RSM and the Title VII Ruling
RSM promotes the equality of all people in our communities and those who work for and with our firm. We are pleased with the Supreme Court’s decision that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 extends to LGBT+ individuals. We support our Pride employee network group, the LGBT+ community and all of our people in bringing their whole authentic selves to work.
Join us as we celebrate being our authentic selves through advocacy, ally-ship and lots of caring and courage during National Pride Month.
On behalf of RSM and the Pride ENG, Kerensa Butler would like to invite you to join her in celebrating Transgender Day of Visibility.
On this Valentine’s day, celebrate your identity! Be your authentic self.
October is National Pride Month, and October 11 marks National Coming Out Day (NCOD) – an annual LGBT+ awareness day.
