What is the PLUS(+) Employee Resource Group
PLUS(+) provides a safe and empowering space for individuals who identify as members of the LGBTQIA+ community. Through sharing knowledge, inspiring authenticity and creating community, PLUS(+) aims to add to the conversation around inclusion and continue building an understanding, accepting, progressive and LGBTQIA+ friendly workplace.
“It's so wonderful to be a part of PLUS(+) in general, just because everyone's so loving, and wonderful, and sweet, and just open-minded and caring,” said Qamar, data privacy engineer and PLUS(+) member. “For me, the value that PLUS(+) brings is awareness of the things that are happening in our communities, the awareness of the discrimination, and how people are dealing with it.”
“The compassion that I feel from our community, the sense of comradery and a true representation of family values is something I think is very important,” said Amanda, quality control verification specialist and PLUS(+) member. “It's very nurturing and healthy to have that.”
