Workplace Pride welcomes this focus as it continues to be clear that mere policy and laws are insufficient to change the hearts and minds of people in the workplace. “Change will only come through a joint effort by everyone who deals LGBT people in the workplace” commented David Pollard, Exec. Director of Workplace Pride.
