Celebrating Pride Month: Embracing Equality and Diversity at Global Procurement Group

At Global Procurement Group (GPG), fostering an environment of equality and diversity has always been at the heart of our community.

And what better way to honour this commitment than during Pride Month?

In our latest blog, we explore this month’s significance and how inclusion strengthens our workplace, encouraging a culture of respect that enriches our team dynamics and makes every one of us feel valued and empowered to bring their whole selves to work.

What is Pride Month?

Pride Month is a celebration of acceptance, equality, and the achievements of LGBTQ+ individuals.

Held every June, it commemorates the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City, a pivotal event in the gay rights movement.

Marked by parades, events, and educational initiatives, it’s a month during which the LGBTQ+ community celebrates their hard-fought victories and encourages allies to show their support.
