Pride Fort Lauderdale is the oldest Pride celebration in the state of Florida, born in 1977 from protests following a successful public referendum to overturn a landmark Miami-Dade County gay rights ordinance. Over the years, Pride South Florida, now known as Pride Fort Lauderdale, has taken many different forms from protests and parades to celebrations and beach festivals. In 2017, Pride Fort Lauderdale moved to Fort Lauderdale Beach for its 40th anniversary, attracting 40,000 people. This year, Pride Fort Lauderdale presented the first parade in city history on scenic State Route A1A along the beach, with nearly 100,000 spectators.
Greater Fort Lauderdale Pride, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, charitable organization as defined by the Internal Revenue Service. The organization is governed by a volunteer board of directors that represent the diverse LGBT+ community of South Florida.
Participation – We foster a spirit of teamwork, sharing, collaboration, self-expression and belonging.
Respect – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.
Integrity– Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.
Diversity – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
Education – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership.
