June is Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Awareness Month. EQUAL!, one of Alcatel-Lucent’s seven employee business partners, is planning activities to celebrate the contributions of the LGBT communities and raise awareness of the issues faced both within and outside the workplace that impact the lives of employees, friends or family members who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender.
Events during the month will include live events and webcast presentations. All employees are invited to attend. Please plan to attend, celebrate, and learn throughout the month!
Find details on the events here.
Each weekday throughout the month, EQUAL! will also highlight a LGBTAM Icon on the EQUAL! blog site. These will be icons you may already know based on their work in the public eye, or with whom you work on a daily basis, or are new to you. Hope you take the opportunity to read their biography each day.
LGBTAM Committee: Kelley Neal (chairperson), Glenda Childress, Jim Deacon, Dotti Evans, Thierry Hochart, Ryk Koscielski, Bud Turner
