June is Pride Month
Celebration + Reading List
By the Executive Service Corps | Published June 2021
Pride Month is an annual commemoration held during the entire month of June to remember the June 1969 Stonewall Riots in Greenwich Village, New York, that served to launch the LGBTQ rights movement in America. Executive Service Corps encourages all organizations and companies to review and update their policies to ensure inclusivity of all individuals on an annual basis.
Book clubs, including those affiliated with organizations, and individuals can choose books related to the holidays of each month, making June a great time to read about Harvey Milk or any other LGBTQ+ leaders in our country's history. Some companies celebrate by organizing fundraisers for LGBTQ+ local organizations. Organizations can utilize LGBTQ+ speakers to conduct awareness training for team members. There are many ways to celebrate Pride month. Executive Service Corps encourages you to use it as an opportunity to be a mindful and inclusive ally.
Many LGBTQ+ Pride activities have moved to later in the 2021. A calendar for Chicago events beginning in October can be found by visiting the Chicago Pride Fest website. You can celebrate Pride today and every day. We welcome you to enjoy the Executive Service Corps' Pride Reading List.
