The month of June was chosen for LGBT Pride Month to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which occurred at the end of June 1969.
As a result, many pride events are held during this month to recognize the impact LGBT people have had in the world.
LGBT speakers are invaluable to a fully integrated and happy workforce. Thankfully many businesses understand the power of a workplace that is truly inclusive. A workplace where all LGBT employees are accepted.
Companies recognize an inclusive workplace provides a healthy environment for employees resulting in improved individual, business, and organisational outcomes.
