Every June, HG honors Pride Month.
We honor the legacy of the Stonewall Uprising, the LGBTQIA+ community’s long-fought struggle for civil rights that many of us take for granted, and the resilience and strength of this community that has experienced discrimination and prejudice.
Pride Month is a celebration of the LGBTQIA+ community, but it is also a struggle, every year, toward, “a future without discrimination where all people have equal rights under the law.” This year’s Pride Month theme is “The Fight Continues,” an homage to the hard-won acceptance that sometimes still wavers as discrimination still endures. Through the LGBTQIA+ community’s struggle, hearts and minds are opened. And every year, foundations are laid for a more just and equitable world for all.
We celebrate the progress the LGBTQIA+ community has brought to our towns, our cities, our countries. This is an acceptance that has made society better for everyone. And HG is proud to honor this legacy.
How HG Honors Pride Month
CEO, Elizabeth Cholawsky, shares, “HG leaders have always built the company to be an inclusive environment. We are particularly proud that our current team has publicly recognized the company for diversity and inclusiveness with awards such as Comparably’s 2020 Best CEO for Women and Diversity Awards and Best CEO for Diversity.”
Bethany Kasmar, HG Insights’ Director of Human Resources, shares: “We ally with the LGBTQIA+ community. We elevate voices in our boardrooms and breakrooms alike, and we are proud to work in an inclusive environment where different backgrounds and perspectives are valued and encouraged, regardless of any individual differences. It has been a priority to promote a culture of inclusion and acceptance at HG. As the team has grown, we have always worked to make sure everyone feels heard, understood, and appreciated—we listen to our employees and the broader LGBTQIA+ community’s discussions on rights, equality, intersectionality, and representation. The diversity of HG is what makes our team so special.”
