This Pride Month, global management firm Apollo hosted a Hall of Pride, encouraging employees to write statements of support for their LGBTQ colleagues and the wider community. For every statement of support, Apollo pledged to donate to the Ali Forney Center’s COVID-19 relief efforts targeting homeless youth. 50% of the youth being helped through the Ali Forney Center identify as LGBTQ, making this donation an incredibly important mission in helping the wider community.

Out Leadership is incredibly proud to see our member firms committing to tangible change in creating a more inclusive and welcoming workplace for the LGBTQ+ community and excited to see the impact of efforts such as this one.
