A Note from the CEO: Happy Pride Month!

Hello Everyone!

Happy Pride Month! 🌈

As we celebrate this important month of LGBTQ+ pride, I want to take a moment to highlight the significance of recognizing and supporting all members of our community, especially our transgender and nonbinary friends. 

In recent times, the challenges faced by the transgender and nonbinary community in particular have been immense, from negative media attention to discriminatory legislation and an alarming rise in mental and physical assaults. It’s crucial that we stand together in solidarity with them, amplifying their voices and advocating for their rights.

To further our commitment to LGBTQ+ awareness and learning, I encourage you to explore the valuable resources provided by The Trevor Project and GLAAD (links below). These organizations offer invaluable support and information that can help us better understand and support our LGBTQ+ colleagues, friends, and family members.

As we come together in celebration, let’s also reflect on how far we’ve come and acknowledge that our work towards equality is still ongoing. Pride is not just about festivities, but also about resilience, perseverance, and the unwavering determination to create a world where everyone can live authentically and without fear.

Thank you for being a part of our community and for your continued support.

With pride and solidarity,

Andrew Fayad

CEO, ELM Learning
