Celebrating Pride

Posted on download buttonDOWNLOAD

At Hasbro, we are committed to using our business as a force for good and building a safer, more inclusive company and world for all people.

 

One of the many ways we foster Inclusion at Hasbro is by creating a culture that allows for meaningful ways for employees to collaborate and find belonging; through our Employee Resource Groups: Diversity, PRIDE, Women’s Leadership, Military Families and Career Parents, employees have the opportunity to raise up their voices, be heard, and take action.

 

As part of Pride month, we are celebrating the work of the PRIDE network, which is a visible, accessible resource for LGBTQ-identified employees and allies, providing LGBTQ-focused networking, educational, and social opportunities for the Hasbro community. The Hasbro PRIDE Network strives to be a catalyst to enact a truly inclusive culture internally, while also offering inclusive products and messaging externally.

 

In celebration of Pride month, the Network has created custom Hasbro Pride apparel, with proceeds benefitting RI Pride. RI Pride funds vital programs and services that foster strength and promote the well-being of Rhode Island's LGBTQIA+ community. Net profits of all sales will help RI Pride provide food, supplies and services to those in need. To support this initiative by purchasing, click here.

 

As part of the Hasbro PRIDE Network’s ongoing commitment to provide resources for employees, they recently hosted a powerful roundtable with Will Malloy, a transgender teen and activist who presented to a group of Hasbro employees on the transformative power of storytelling.

 

“It’s much harder to hold hatred or bigotry for a group of people if you care about and understand them. Storytelling can truly change how we view others’ humanity.”

 

These were just some of the words Will shared, along with his belief that storytelling can promote empathy and understanding, which drives change, and ultimately, equity. You can watch an excerpt from his talk here.

 

Will’s family, including his mother, Hasbro Process Manager Liz Malloy, answered questions with him during the Q&A portion of the roundtable. “Listen more than you talk.” This is the advice Liz gave to employee attendees when asked how parents can best support a child who comes out to them and shares their true identity.
