Pride Month Events: how is your company celebrating?

Posted by Natalie Simmons on May 5, 2021 10:15:00 AM

With June just a few weeks away, now is a perfect time to start planning your company's Pride celebration. We've got a bunch of great ideas to help you show your support for the LGBTQ+ community, celebrate diversity and inclusion, and enjoy a chance to connect and have fun with your coworkers. It's a win-win-win!

Looking for fun ideas and ways to celebrate? We've got plenty of amazing virtual events that are perfect for Pride Month!

1. Pride Month Trivia

There's nothing quite like some team trivia to get your employees excited, laughing, and having a blast. We love to take a traditional pub quiz format and infuse it with Pride-themed trivia questions. Learn a little Pride Month history, enjoy some fun LGBTQ+ pop culture references, and connect with your teammates as you compete for the win!

2. Rainbow Paint Night

A virtual paint night is an amazing way for employees to decompress, relax with each others' coworkers, and try something new. For this Pride-themed paint night, we'll mail your team all the supplies they need, and an instructor will lead them in painting a gorgeous rainbow scene to celebrate Pride Month. 

3. 52 Connections

One of the most important ways to ensure your employees feel a true sense of inclusion is by providing opportunities for your team to connect on a human level, not just about work. 

Our facilitated 52 Connections exercise divides your team into pairs to talk using a deck of prompt questions, then rotates them to new groups every 5 minutes. Rather than awkwardly spotlighting anyone within the LGBTQ+ community, these intimate chats allow people to get to know each other one-on-one, so no one feels put on the spot. All the questions are "safe for work," so people can be as open with their discussion partners as they feel comfortable.

When we all share openly and show up as ourselves, it's a chance to learn that we're all human, no matter who we love or how we identify.
