Celebrating Pride at West Monroe

This year, we have an extra reason to celebrate LGBT+ Pride Month: the launch of West Monroe’s newest employee resource group, WMPride! WMPride is open to both LGBT+ employees and supporters and is designed to support and encourage the ongoing growth and success of our LGBT+ employees and community at West Monroe.

Why create WMPride?

More than half of LGBT+ Americans today go to work fearing losing their jobs because of who they are or who they love so much that they remain “in the closet.” No current federal law protects LGBT+ workers from employment discrimination and more than 40% of lesbian, gay, and bisexual people and almost 90% of transgender people have experienced employment discrimination, harassment or mistreatment. At West Monroe, we have made it our goal to ensure that isn’t the case. At West Monroe, one of our core values is respect for diverse experience and thought and everyone is welcome and encouraged to bring their authentic selves to work. WMPride helps us bring together LGBT+ employees and allies to create a supportive environment so employees are comfortable to focus their energy on doing engaging work, cultivating meaningful relationships, and contributing to our communities. Read on to learn why WMPride members think our new ERG will help us continue to build an inclusive culture at West Monroe, and why they are excited to participate.
