Love, Learn, Laugh & Lift: Pitney Bowes Pride

PRIDE: Championing LGBTQIA+ Leaders & Allies

Pride month is a great time to learn from LGBTQ+ leaders, to lift up underrepresented voices and of course, to spread some love. We are thrilled that we are joined by Polly O’Brien Morrow, Senior Program Manager, Global Corporate Citizenship & Philanthropy and Rustin Tonn, Senior Manager for Global Diversity, Inclusion, and Engagement to discuss their journeys at HRC award winner Pitney Bowes and how Pitney Bowes supports its LGBTQIA+ members. Some topics we will discuss include sharing transition stories, how Pitney Bowes spotlights LGBTQ+ talent, education equity, and their amazing benefits including Family Formation. Questions are welcome!
