Celebrating Pride, But Not Just in June
Creating an inclusive environment is a year-round mission at Postman—where we’re dedicated to helping everyone feel like they belong. For Pride Month in June, Postman partnered with employees to host and support activities that honored the month meaningfully, sharing the event’s importance across Postman in fun and engaging ways. Learn what we did—and are continuing to do—and what our employees say about this year’s Pride-related activities along with Postman’s ongoing commitment to inclusivity.
When it feels right, it feels right
Who we’re attracted to and who we love are deeply personal experiences, and sharing affection is one of humanity’s purest joys, fulfilling a fundamental need while affirming who we are as loving, compassionate beings.
This is why at Postman we support who you are and who you’re growing into on your lifelong journey toward self-discovery. Celebrating Pride Month at Postman reflects our commitment to a diverse and welcoming workplace.
Postmanauts honored Pride Month by:
- Participating in the Global Pride History and Culture Trivia game.
- Planning a panel discussion with LGBTQ Youth Space, a nonprofit support and resource group in Santa Clara, California.
- Joining the Global Book Club to discuss Nonbinary Lives by Jos T, Ben V, M-J, and Kat G.
Virtual LGBTQIA+ History and Culture Trivia
Postmanauts around the world met for a battle of the brains. Many were humbled by the intellectual prowess displayed by peers who schooled the rest of the crew about the individuals and groups who played vital roles in, and doggedly fought for, the civil rights and safety of all who identify as LGBTQIA+.
LGBTQ Youth Space panel discussion
Postman has partnered with the LGBTQ Youth Space, a program of Family & Children Services in Santa Clara County, and will participate in a panel discussion in late July. The conversation will focus on what diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging look like at work and at school, and chat about top-of-mind topics. Our goal is to create a space where our employees can build bridges in our local communities and be a resource.
Pride Month book club
Every month, Postman has a book club to inspire conversation and discussion. For Pride Month, Postmanauts chose a book focusing on queer issues. Nonbinary Lives is an anthology featuring non-binary individuals and their experiences navigating across communities. Through this book club, Postman aimed to encourage more understanding, foster an inclusive culture, and support our goal of building a company as diverse as our users.
Postman Giving and Matching Program
Many Postman employees volunteer and donate to their favorite LGBTQ2+ organizations. Through the Postman Giving and Matching Program, Postman will make a dollar-for-dollar match or donate for every hour of volunteer time submitted by an employee.
