National Grid will show their unwavering commitment to inclusion and diversity, and the LGBTQIA community, as a sponsor of WorldPride 2019. The WorldPride 2019 celebration in New York City also marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, a series of demonstrations that sparked a fight for LGBTQIA rights in the United States. On June 30, hundreds of National Grid employees will march in the Pride parade that attracts 3 million people.
Employees will walk alongside a National Grid electric vehicle as part of an effort to increase awareness and adoption of electric vehicles. This is part of a larger goal to reduce carbon emissions by 80% below 1990 levels by the year 2050 with the states they serve: Massachusetts, New York, and Rhode Island. National Grid believes building a diverse and inclusive workforce is the right thing to do and the only way forward to an innovative, clean energy future.
