Celebrating Pride Month
Every year, Pride Month is held in June to commemorate the Stonewall riots and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community. The riots were important protests that changed LGBT rights for people in America and around the world. For LGBTQ+ people, Pride Month promotes their dignity, equal rights, self-affirmation, and it is a way of increasing society’s awareness of the issues they face.
It allows people to come together, to show how far LGBTQ+ rights have come and to raise awareness that there is still work to be done.
Here at Caremark Rotherham & Sheffield we are proud to state that we are an equal opportunities employer and we promote equality and diversity across our workforce.
