Pride at Work is an employee-led business resource group (BRG), which is strongly committed to creating awareness and understanding of the diverse backgrounds and experiences represented at Thomson Reuters. Our mission is to create a safe and inclusive workplace for LGBTQ+ employees while remaining aligned with the Thomson Reuters business objectives, those of our customers and external partners, and the wider community of LGBTQ+ individuals, friends, and allies.

Pride Month 2024

Throughout June, many countries around the world celebrate Pride Month. This year, we united our global events under the theme Global Pride, Local Stories: Amplifying LGBTQ+ Voices at Thomson Reuters, reflecting our commitment to celebrating diversity and the unique journeys of our teammates around the world.

Our many Pride at Work chapters around the globe hosted a wide range of events to celebrate our community, raise awareness about ongoing challenges, promote allyship, and build connections to drive further inclusion.

Events included:

  • The Toronto + U.S. virtual chapter, along with Chief Product Officer David Wong, hosted a panel event featuring expert journalists who cover issues affecting LGBTQ+ communities around the world. The panel included Thomson Reuters Foundation and Reuters journalists, as well as the managing editor of Minority Africa.
