The Pride Leadership Forum is held with the purpose of celebrating and honoring members of the LGBTQ+ community as leaders in the workplace. This forum offers participants the opportunity to explore best leadership practices and principles in relation to LGBTQ+ identities, equity and inclusion in the workplace.
pride leadership forum diversity mentoring program
what the program includes
Employees select topics of their choosing for areas of growth and leverage our technology to self-select a mentor of their choice on that topic for 3-months. At the culmination of those 3-months, participants select a new area of growth and a new mentor – resulting in a total of 4 mentors per year.
employee-level group mentorship & coaching
Every other month, employee mentoring sessions are provided for these participants to engage in. Providing a space for public speakers, a variety of insights and group coaching from other employees across the country.
Ensuring our mentors and mentees are having impactful conversations is key! We teach each employee through a five-session coursework on how to be a successful mentor and certify them at their completion.
capacity building tools
Accessing our robust Skills Learning Library provides additional tools and resources that your employees can access 24/7. This library of resources covering more than 40 topics in both personal and skill development provides additional guidance for growth.
“I don’t think you could find a more dedicated group of professionals focused on the overall success of your mentoring program.”
