About Emerson's LGBTQ + Allies Employee Resource Group

Empowering our LGBTQ+ workforce, fostering a diverse and inclusive company culture, and advocating for the recruitment, advancement, and retention of LGBTQ+ talent. The Pride Flag symbolizes pride for the LGBTQ+ community, and is a symbol of hope, belonging, community, and solidarity. Representing a bond between strangers who share little other than their identity as an LGBTQ+ individual. For many, the Pride Flag offers them the visibility they otherwise would not have. Its colors represent the immense diversity of the LGBTQ+ community and its allies. When we fly the Pride Flag at our locations and celebrate with Rainbow Day and this Best Dressed Product Auction, it says to our employees, the communities we live in and serve, and the world that Emerson supports all individuals regardless of their identities: LGBTQ+ or not. It reinforces our cause of Inclusion, Inclusive Employment Policies and Practices, and showcases our commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion – as all people are welcome under its colors.
