June is Pride month and at WestJet we are proud of the diverse identities that make up WestJet’s world. This month we interviewed four WestJetters who are proud members of the LGBTQ2+ community and asked them to share their personal stories and tell us about what pride means to them.
Kicking off the month, is Chuck Crowder, WestJet Vice-President, Sales and Distribution.
What does pride mean to you?
To me pride is twofold; it means empowering everyone to feel their voice is important and listening and celebrating those voices that might differ from our own. Our differences in background, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation should be celebrated and embraced. It is our collective responsibility, to give everyone a voice and celebrate the diverse identities that surround us, not just in June while celebrating Pride month, but 365 days a year.
