Advancing Workplace Equality

Despite many Twitter rants about VP Pence from the LGBTQ community, and some very concerning quotes and headlines coming from the new Trump administration that impact the gay community — we at Executive Pride see a ray of hope and are looking to rise above the noise by giving kudos to Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner and the Trump administration for doing the right thing for the LGBTQ community, despite pressure from right wing.

It is very encouraging that the Trump administration is upholding the LGBTQ workplace protections, despite some intense political pressure to reverse the Executive Order. Our community has been very concerned, and confused, about future actions and next steps given the conflicting and chaotic messaging on this issue. Our network of business professionals are committed to working with the new administration, and everyone that cares about making LGBTQ workplace equality a reality. This statement of clarity is very welcoming and is a great way to end the week! It is my hope that this will energize our network to work towards positive change, regardless of political party affiliation. Doing what is right is always cause for celebration and deserves thanks and praise.

We at Executive Pride wanted to acknowledge - and praise - Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner and the Trump administration for dismissing the anti-LGBT executive order and ensuring that inclusion and equality continues to be a reality for the LGBTQ community — in the workplace and beyond.

Want to ensure equality and inclusion in the workplace and beyond? Travis Kelso-Turner, Executive Director of Executive Pride, would like to drive people to take the pledge, become a member of Executive Pride (at no cost) and make “Pride Inside” in every American workplace a reality!
