Dear friends and partners,
Next week marks the end of Pride Month, where we celebrate the colorful and diverse LGBTQ+ community and remember the work that is still to be done in addressing the inequality that faces the community. We remember that many LGBTQ+ folks continue to face discrimination, hate, and issues in the workplace, even after the progress that has been made over the past few decades.
The fight for LGBTQ+ rights is not a month-long event but a long-term commitment, and as a staffing agency, we have a special role to play in the struggle for equality. Diversity in staffing strengthens us all – as individuals seeking equitable and inclusive employment, as corporations committed to upholding the values they assert, and as a community where we seek to heal and do better, together.
This month, we celebrated by joining the 3 million members and supporters of the Human Rights Campaign and donating to the organization in support of their mission to “create a world where lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people are ensured equality and embraced as full members of society at home, at work, and in every community.”
Beyond June, we renew our commitment to the LGBTQ+ community to share our resources and, as is reflected in our equity statement, to promote policies, practices, and a workplace culture that honor the inherent worth of all people.
We at Advent Talent Group wish those in the LGBTQ+ community success in all their endeavors and a Happy Pride!
Mary Younggren, Owner & President, and the Advent Team
