No matter how you choose to celebrate Pride, recognizing the importance of diversity in our communities remains. To kickoff the month, we asked PulsePoint employees what Pride and inclusivity mean to them.
“For me, Pride is about being unabashedly yourself at all times. It does not matter other’s opinion, all that matters is that you are comfortable in your own skin and are proud of the person you have become. I hope every person can wake up each morning with pride in their heart.” — Jordan Brickman, Director of Strategic Partnerships and CTV, PulsePoint
“Pride is about recognizing what is unique about ourselves.” — Sloan Gaon, CEO, PulsePoint
“Being your true self, and receiving love and acceptance for it is no small thing. Pride Month is a time to celebrate what makes us different, while also reminding us that we are always more alike than our differences. For me, Pride is a time of reflection on how far the LGBTQIA+ community has come, and how much more there is to do. We are all worthy of kindness.” — Casey Carden, Senior Director of Sales, PulsePoint
“Pride is honoring human authenticity and equality. Pride is a conscious love for yourself and any community.” — Nick Ockert, Vice President of Sales and Native Advertising, PulsePoint
"To me, Pride is a celebration of your authentic self. It makes me happy to see people from all different walks of life get together and celebrate. There's a lot of history behind this month, and an acknowledgment of the progress made for LGBTQIA+ rights is really important (though there's always more work to be done). I appreciate the focus on inclusivity, equality, and belonging." — Vicky Tan, HRIS and Benefits Specialist, PulsePoint
“Pride means confidently living with authenticity and dignity and remembering your self-worth despite injustices.” — Maria Simeone, Vice President of Marketing, PulsePoint
