How Medtronic is creating a culture of belonging for the LGBTQ+ community
After recently moving with her wife and soon-to-be 3-year-old son, Anna Forsberg plans to spend much of June settling into their new house. It’s going to be a rather low-key Pride month for Forsberg, director of strategy and business development in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa for Medtronic.
Pride Month is a worldwide celebration representing many things to members and allies of the LGBTQIA+ community. Pride Month can mean love, visibility, self-actualization, and admiration. These are the inspiring one-word answers NRG employees used to describe what Pride Month means to them and how it shapes the communities where they live and work.
In honor of Pride Month, our “Starting the Conversation” podcast episode will focus on Pride in the workplace. We believe it is important to create an environment where people feel comfortable to bring their full authentic self to the workplace. Hear from GP employees about their experiences and how we can continue to create an inclusive workplace for all.
Belonging means you never have to hide your true self
At Henkel, we strive to create an environment where employees feel they belong and are empowered to live authentically. As part of our celebration of PRIDE month and commitment to creating a more inclusive community every day, we invited employees to share their pride: as allies, advocates and members of the LGBTQ+ community.

The St. Pete Pride parade, which attracted 265,000 people in 2019, hasn’t been held for two years because of the coronavirus pandemic. But when participants march again, members of Florida’s new Duke Energy WeR1 employee resource group will be among them.
