In June, Stop & Shop will sponsor and participate in Pride events in Quincy, Boston, Providence and New York City. These events all celebrate the LGTBQ community and commemorate the 1969 Stonewall Riots, a turning point for LGTBQ rights when members of the gay community clashed with police who raided the Stonewall Inn in Manhattan.
Stop & Shop supports diversity, and we are very proud to sponsor these events. The Pride events are great opportunities to stand with our LGTBQ communities, and I want to encourage you to volunteer. Information on ways you can help and how to sign up can be found on NewsFeed, as well as on The Source and Associate Connect.
Supporting events like the Pride celebrations is one way Stop & Shop is actively fostering a diverse, inclusive workplace. We’ll be giving you updates soon on more ways we are supporting diversity and inclusion — including re-launching our Business Resource Groups — so stay tuned for more information.
