"From the classroom to the boardroom, we must continue to speak up for our community and the work that still needs to be done." — Callum Barr
Pride Month 2020 was unlike any before. The global pandemic and uprising against systemic discrimination changed how we live, how we work, and how we interact with each other. And it shaped how we support, celebrate, and uplift all marginalized groups. To help guide us, a team of our ICF Next colleagues, including Callum Barr and Mo Eigen, created a resource guide for our employees. It includes links to biographies, resources, podcasts, playlists, speeches, and recommended readings from the LGBTQIA+ community.
"Education on issues and challenges faced by the LGBTQ+ community is vital to ending stigma, tackling bias, and moving towards an equal society. To walk through the world unaware of the adversity faced by certain groups is a privilege not afforded to everyone. The only way to address this is representation and education," Callum shares.
We're full of pride for the work we do for our clients. A groundbreaking surveillance study on transgender women. A survey on the impact of COVID-19 on the LGBTQ community. A study that examines the social position of transgender people across Europe. Together, we're supporting a more prosperous and resilient world for the LGBTQIA+ community.
