Avanade’s Prism (LGBTQ+ Employee Network) and INSPIRE (Black Employee Network) chat about intentional intersectionality, racial diversity across the spectrum, and the true power storytelling unlocks at work and at home.
As we celebrated Pride this past June, we witnessed a lot happening in the world. From a global pandemic to racial inequality coming to hearts and headlines across the globe, we saw this as a time when sharing and having genuine conversations, and listening to those voices, are so important.
During this year’s #ConnectedInPride series, originally aired in June, we featured conversations and connections from across the globe. Discussing all-things LGBT+, inclusion, and intersectionality.
Prism, our LGBTQ+ Employee Resource Group chatted with INSPIRE, our Black Employee Network. The two groups got together to discuss intentional intersectionality, racial diversity across the spectrum, and the true power storytelling unlocks at work and at home.
