Celebrating Pride Month
Goodwill-Easter Seals Minnesota (GESMN) is proud to celebrate our LGBTQIA+ employees and launch a new employee resource group for connection. We strive to reflect the communities we serve by actively listening and growing to ensure everyone feels welcome, to be their true authentic self.
In June, we collaborated with local influencer Ty Dowda for Pride Month. Check out his unique finds on our social media and get inspired for the Twin Cities Pride Festival coming up!
Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) are central to our mission. Every month, our employee-led DEI council shares educational opportunities, conducts listening sessions and provides resource guides to encourage teams across the organization to engage in thought-provoking discussions with openness and respect.
Check out these LGBTQIA+ Pride Month resources from our DEI council and join in on the conversation:
