Embracing inclusion and diversity: 2024 Pride

As June arrives, it's time to celebrate Pride Month, a vibrant and inclusive tribute to the 2SLGBTQI+ community. This month honors their rich history, incredible achievements, and the ongoing fight for equality. It also serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of acceptance, diversity, and love. We are committed to fostering an inclusive and supportive environment where each employee, consultant, and construction partner can feel safe being their authentic self at work.  

The history of Pride 

 Pride began with the Stonewall Uprising of June 1969, when members of the 2SLGBTQI+ community spontaneously protested a police raid at the Stonewall Inn in New York City. This pivotal event marked the start of the modern 2SLGBTQI+ rights movement. 

In Canada, the first large-scale Pride demonstration occurred in 1971 with the "We Demand" rally in Ottawa, advocating for changes to discriminatory laws and policies. Over the decades, Pride celebrations have grown in size and significance, becoming an integral part of Canadian society, promoting visibility, acceptance, and equality for all. 

Creating a welcoming environment 

 Our goal is to create a workplace where all team members know that they belong. Our collective strength comes from the unique perspectives and experiences each of us brings to the table. 

With Pride in mind, we want to build a more inclusive space for our teams and communities through continuous learning. Here are some meaningful ways to celebrate Pride this month” 

  • Educate yourself: Take the time to learn about the history and experiences of the 2SLGBTQI+ community.  

  • Attend Pride Events: Take part in local parades, festivals, and events celebrating the 2SLGBTQI+ community. 

  • Support 2SLGBTQI+ Businesses: Purchase from businesses owned by or supporting the 2SLGBTQI+ community. 

  • Create Safe Spaces: Ensure that your home, workplace, and community are welcoming and inclusive for all. 

As we celebrate Pride, let's take this opportunity to renew our commitment to inclusion and diversity. We know that there is still a lot of work to do, and it’s important to be intentional about having conversations about equity. Together, we can make a positive impact and build a more inclusive future.
