Juni is Pride Month en dat vieren we door enkele geweldige Nitronauten in de LGBTQIA+-gemeenschap in de schijnwerpers te zetten.

Bij Nitro is diversiteit niet alleen een doel waar we naartoe werken. Het is een missie die ons oproept om een van onze fundamentele waarden te belichamen: Be Good. Juni is Pride Month en dat vieren we door enkele geweldige Nitronauten in de LGBTQIA+-gemeenschap in de schijnwerpers te zetten.

Wij spraken met Heather Arnold, Julie Gannon, Marcus Connolly en Chris Kirby over het belang van Pride, hun persoonlijke ervaringen en de toekomst van Pride op het werk:

Nitro spreekt trots
There is a lot more space for more identities and, more folks will continue to find space for them within that community. But, we need to find more ways for inclusion and representation to allow for more people to exist within that community and feel supported.

We’ve got to realize that without those people in the older generation that took steps to get out of their comfort zone, to protest, riot, and get everything up and running, we would not be where we are today. We are standing on their shoulders, and they gave us the foundation to put everything that we have now in place.

The previous generation went through battles for us. And without the sacrifices and the willingness to stand up for what they believed in, we wouldn’t be having this conversation and this opportunity to speak about it, so thank you. To the generation to come, don’t forget.

You don’t have to lie when you live your truth, and being in this community and in this company allows that, and that’s what is really nice. You’re just yourself.
