Had you visited the DocuSign offices last June, you would’ve seen hundreds of employees donning DocuSign Pride tee shirts, chatting excitedly, and gearing up to participate in the parade in support of our fellow #LGBTQA customers, partners, and employees. This year will be no different: In both San Francisco and Seattle, employees will march together in support of the #LGBTQIA community.
Our company culture isn’t just built around leveraging the power of our technology — we’re also committed to harnessing the power of our employees to inspire and effect positive change.
DocuSign Data Scientist and co-chair for DocuPride SF, Laurie Roderick, has been leading the Pride parade coordination efforts alongside Senior Program Manager, Helen Sterling. Together, along with numerous other DocuSign employees, they’ve created a Pride experience that will rally together DocuSign employees in support of the Pride month and our LGBTQIA friends, family, and colleagues.
“DocuSign is hosting two formal events this month to celebrate Pride,” said Roderick. “First, we have a happy hour scheduled for June 13 to get everyone excited and pumped to participate in Pride season. At the end of the month, June 24th, we will be marching under the DocuPride at DocuSign contingency in the Pride Parade in both San Francisco and Seattle.” There will be plenty of food, games, face painting, a photo booth, and of course — Pride shirts.
In total, DocuSign is aiming to get 50+ employees, family, and friends from each office to march in the Seattle and San Francisco parades, respectively. “This is our biggest and most important event of the year as a group,” Roderick continued. “It’s even more important for the visibility of DocuSign as a leader and supporter of diversity and inclusion at large.”
We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to walk alongside family, friends and fellow DocuSign employees in this year’s parades in Seattle and San Francisco. Want to learn more about what we have in store? We invite you to follow our Pride 2018 coverage here, here, and of course, here.
