Here at Women’s Web, we know that real inclusion matters, and we walk the talk. With inclusive workplace policies, in the content we publish throughout the year, and our community.
So Celebrating Pride for us is more than just adopting rainbow filters for Pride Month, it is standing up for the community and their rights too!
#CelebratingTheRainbow means acknowledging that we are different and unique in our own way. Our gender identity or sexual orientation does not determine the person we are, or the opportunities we get. But, are our workplaces inclusive?
This Pride Month we want to amplify real voices from the LGBTQ community in India – something we do throughout the year but with special focus on in this month. Through your stories – fiction or nonfiction, we want to make the broader audience aware of just how real workplace discrimination is, and why we need more vocal and consistent allies from people beyond the community too.
Have you faced discrimination at the workplace for your identity as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community or know someone who has?
Do you stand up as an ally of the LGBTQIA+ community and use your words to amplify the voice of the community? Do you make space for the community to speak up for themselves?
On the other hand, do you have a heartwarming, positive story of inclusion at your workplace?
Whatever your story is, share it with us this Pride Month and #CelebrateTheRainbow. You can choose to use your name or remain anonymous, as is comfortable for you.
Your story can be in fiction form or a personal, non-fiction narrative.
Submit your story on your author dashboard. If you aren’t yet an author with us, it is easy to sign up here.
When you submit, do not forget to put the hashtag #CelebrateTheRainbow alongside your title.
At Women’s Web, we believe that this is YOUR SPACE to speak of your reality. YOU get to choose your story and tell it to others. A safe space to have your say about what you would like to be different in your work environment – since YOU get to choose the name and identity you want to present to the world, even choosing to be anonymous if that’s what you want, and yet have your voice heard.
And of course, it helps, always, that there’s chocolate.
