CBT Celebrates Pride Month 2022!
This June our firm is celebrating its fourth year of CBT Proud with long-awaited, in-person events throughout the month at One Constitution Wharf!
For this year’s Pride, we’re focusing on community and fostering inclusivity, diversity, and positivity, both here in Boston and around the world. Recently, CBT received our JUST certification solidifying our commitment to inclusion and preserving a diverse and equitable workplace for all employees. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities and talent of our people represents a critical part of who we are at CBT.
Our line-up of events this month center on this idea of community with educational sessions guided by guest speakers hailing from MA and beyond. Our first guest speaker will discuss his fight against hate speech in his Milton, MA front yard and our second speaker, from Safe Schools South Florida, will share with us their mission of teaching respect for all and creating safe schools where all students can learn and thrive. The month will round out with a host of fun activities for CBTers and their family and friends, including do-it-yourself tie dye and Drag Bingo. Drag Bingo is celebrating its 3rd year of fundraising for LGBTQIA+ organizations and this year will present one of our first 100% in-person events. We are also introducing preferred pronoun buttons and Pride-festive Teams background to celebrate.
