We are proud to announce that we are a GSBA (Greater Seattle Business Association) PRIDE sponsor this year. What does this mean? Whether we are hosting a pride event at our office, or eagerly throwing out Whitepages Pride Frisbees, we are as involved as possible with the GSBA PRIDE events. As a GSBA PRIDE sponsor, we affirm that, “Equality is Good Business.” In other words, Whitepages celebrates inclusion of all internally as well as those within the community.
One of our most recent sponsorship opportunities was at the Seattle Pride Parade, which organizers estimated was attended by 500,000 people. To add to the spirit, we provided parade-goers with 1000 Whitepages tote bags and 1500 mini Pridepages flying discs (aka Frisbees). Needless to say, they were a hit with the large crowd.
The celebration and Whitepages involvement continued after the parade. The GSBA was also set up at the local PRIDEFEST at the Seattle Center. We were joined by nearly 100 other companies such T-Mobile, Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Nordstrom, UBER, Expedia and Facebook.
As a follow up to the festivities, Pridepages hosted a happy hour for employees on July 10th. From the lip-sync battle hosted by Kimber Lee Champagne to rainbow Jell-O shots, the celebration was a success, The continuous involvement and acceptance within the entire Whitepages team as well as GSBA community is just one of the many reasons I am part of Team Whitepages . Cheers to LGBTQ Pride month!
