June is Pride Month and it is time to celebrate the gains made by the LGBTQ+ community, the sacrifices made by those throughout history and the leading examples of strides the LGBTQ+ community has made in recent years.
If you look at many of the major companies in America and the world you can see in their leadership the many different faces of the LGBTQ+ community. Every year we see more and more LGBTQ+ persons filling the role of CEO for these very companies.
We are highlighting some examples of the LGBTQ+ leaders who have persevered through the trials of being "different" and came to lead some of the largest and most innovative companies in the world. Their leadership has brought a different perspective to the business world, creating forward-thinking and inclusive companies and changing the landscape for LGBTQ+ persons now and in the future.
And while there is still much left to be done to create true equality, we want to celebrate the trailblazers who have done so much and have worked so hard to close that gap.
