In the continuing spirit of embracing diversity and fostering a culture of inclusion, HARMAN proudly joined the LGBTQ+ community in commemorating Pride Month this June. As an organization committed to equality and respect for all, we recognize the importance of creating an inclusive workplace where employees feel safe – psychologically, physically, and emotionally – and celebrated for their authentic selves.
The first Pride marches were held in June 1970 in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Since then, Pride Month has expanded to include a variety of educational and celebratory activities around the globe. This year, HARMAN employees participated in local parades, educational workshops, and other community outreach events, to explore what it means to be an ally and foster an atmosphere of support and solidarity.
Throughout the year, our HARMAN Pride Employee Resource Group (ERG) works to create and maintain a safe, inclusive, and equitable environment for all HARMAN employees.

HARMAN remains committed to creating an inclusive culture that empowers and supports everyone, including members of the LGBTQ+ community. While we celebrate the progress we have made, we know that we must still continue our journey towards a more inclusive and equitable future for all.
