Pride is celebrated across the United States, and across the world, for the entire month of June. Here at Experian, we celebrate diversity and inclusion 365 days a year. Our promise to diversity and inclusion resonates beyond just a mission statement—it’s something we as an organization live out every day. Grace Jakubowski, an Account Manager at Experian, said: “Diversity and inclusion in the workplace is about creating an environment where a person can bring their whole self to work—Experian does that.” This June, we joined in on the celebrations, showing our pride at every one of our offices throughout the United States. All of our offices had different activities, gatherings, and networking opportunities to celebrate the month of Pride for members and supporters of the LGBTQ community.
