Pride Month is a time when we stand together to support and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and its allies. As an inclusive global company, Pride Month provides us the opportunity to elevate our commitment and unite as one Verizon by embracing and advocating for diversity and inclusion, and by promoting equality for all. 

Our V Teamers are standing together this Pride Month, doing everything from participating in virtual volunteer opportunities to conducting virtual Pride walks. We’re also excited to share our new 2020 Pride shirts, which benefit a great cause.

V Teamers helping each other. 

A portion of the proceeds from our 2020 Pride t-shirts will benefit the VtoV Employee Relief Fund, a charity that provides aid for Verizon employees displaced from their homes due to a natural or personal emergency - such as fire, flood, severe weather or domestic violence.  

Since launching 2013, the VtoV Fund has provided over $3 million in grants to over 2,500 V Teamers around the world for food, clothing, shelter and other necessities during life-changing disasters.

Celebrating diversity and inclusion year-round. 

For us, Pride is more than one month in a year. As a company committed to diversity and inclusion, Pride is something we recognize year-round.

It’s important that we celebrate diversity and embrace inclusion every single day of the year. We’re proud to be able to do so through our social responsibility efforts and employee resource groups (ERG), such as Prism of Verizon, our ERG for the LGBTQ+ community and their allies. 

At Verizon, we create the networks that move the world forward. We are committed to helping ensure we move it forward for everyone. Show your support this month while giving to a great cause through our 2020 Pride t-shirts. Purchase yours here.
