Raising the Progress Pride Flag
General Mills’ support and allyship for our LGBTQ+ employees and the broader community is unwavering.
That’s why our Pride planning teams were committed to finding creative ways to celebrate Pride this year amidst social distancing, while ensuring we were able to fully focus on allyship for our Black community in light of the George Floyd tragedy and fight for racial justice.
“It’s been such a heavy time and being able to celebrate Pride with colleagues and honor its history by remembering the Stonewall Riots that were sparked by a Black transgender woman in response to police brutality and discrimination is extremely important,” says Molly Sjostrom, global inclusion manager. “It speaks to intersectionality and the need for allyship within and across our marginalized communities to drive real change.”
