Every year during June and July, our associates around the world come together to participate in a broad range of activities in celebration of Pride. Even as the coronavirus pandemic impacts worldwide events and with hundreds of parades and events postponed or canceled, there is still an opportunity to bring about awareness on a global level—and to celebrate milestones like the U.S. Supreme Court's decision. This year, we embarked on a new direction and are using virtual events as a way to globally celebrate diversity and equality during these challenging times.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to upend daily life around the globe, T. Rowe Price remains committed to supporting our associates, clients, and communities. One of the greatest strengths of our culture has always been our associates’ passion and dedication to giving back to those most in need.
“Our associates have a long history of generosity, and the past several months have been no exception,” says Renee Christoff, head of Global Associate Engagement + Corporate Responsibility.

As many families navigate financial hardship and stress brought on by the pandemic, T. Rowe Price advises parents to discuss potential money challenges with kids during this difficult time. The firm’s research shows that kids are astute observers of family financial dynamics, often detecting when there is financial stress. In the absence of guidance from their parents, kids are left to form their own conclusions about the drivers of financial stress and what it means for their family.
