Life at BlackLine—Celebrating Pride Month

image

3-minute read

At BlackLine, we celebrate diversity, inclusion, and belonging every day, and we strive to build a culture that lifts everyone up. June is Pride Month, a month dedicated to the uplifting of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) voices, the celebration of LGBTQ+ culture, history, and the support of LGBTQ+ rights.

“Working in an environment where I am accepted and celebrated makes a huge difference. A team that is genuinely committed to respecting, nurturing, and celebrating the success of women, people of color, and LGBTQ+ folks is one of the many reasons why working at BlackLine is such a unique experience.”

Frank-Adrien Papon, Esq.—Commercial Counsel, EMEA and an organizer of BlackLine’s participation in the Pride in London parade

Inclusion, Support & Allyship

One of the many ways BlackLiners support each other is through our employee resource groups, including OPEN (Out Professional Engagement Network). OPEN’s goals are to increase awareness of and advocacy for the LGBTQ+ community through support, outreach, and allyship at BlackLine and beyond. Members of the group organize their activities around four key pillars:

Community—providing opportunities for BlackLiners to meet and support each other

Education—offering tools and resources for everyone (members and non-members) on workplace-relevant LGBTQ+ topics

Recruitment—attending LGBTQ+ conferences and recruiting events 

Outreach—partnering with organizations that champion LGBTQ+ causes 

OPEN has provided BlackLiners with a safe space to ask questions and learn. Allies better understand what it means to support people who may identify differently from themselves. And both employees who identify as LGBTQ+ and those who don’t have had the opportunity to improve their ability to work together, foster trust, and form deeper relationships.

“As a company, BlackLine takes great measures to ensure all employees are accepted and valued as individuals, regardless of race, religion, age, disabilities, gender, or sexual orientation. I was an initial member of our LGBTQ+ group OPEN and I love the fact that participation is open to all employees. I have felt welcomed and safe in my workplace and in my relationships with fellow employees.”

Bobby Buchanan—Lead, Senior Salesforce Administrator

Recognizing & Celebrating Pride Month

Pride is a month for reflection and remembrance, but it’s also a month of celebrations. Throughout June, BlackLine employees around the world participated in events like the Pride Parade in London (commemorating 50 years since the first Pride took place in the UK), a virtual 5K Challenge, online learning sessions, and more.

“I truly believe we’re building something special as part of our inclusive culture at BlackLine—where everyone belongs and can bring their whole selves to work every day.”

Susan Otto—Chief People Officer and executive sponsor of OPEN

In addition to our worldwide employee events and celebrations, BlackLine is a proud sponsor of the Lesbians Who Tech & Allies Pride Summit. LWT is the largest community of LGBTQ+ women, non-binary, and trans individuals (and the people who support them) in or around tech. Over 5,000 women and non-binary people in tech attend the summit each year, making it the largest professional LGBTQ+ event in the world.

And, to celebrate National Coming Out Day, and in support of LGBTQ+ awareness, BlackLiners gathered for an open conversation about belonging. But first ... they danced!
