“Each of our Team Schein Members’ unique backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences contributes to who we are as Henry Schein and to our success as a business,” said
Henry Schein’s commitment to LGBTQ+ equality in the workplace is best demonstrated by its employee resource group, PRIDE & ALLIES, which aims to enhance, foster, and preserve an inclusive environment where LGBTQ+ Team Schein Members are empowered to be their authentic selves and are valued for their diverse perspectives, which contribute to Henry Schein’s business success. To view highlights from PRIDE & ALLIES activities, please watch this video.
In 2020, PRIDE & ALLIES expanded the programming of its signature event, “Revelations,” a series of candid conversations about coming out, breaking down barriers, developing an inclusive and cohesive environment, and building trusting relationships that foster and encourage individuals to live openly at home, at work, and in the community. Each “Revelations” conversation is designed to bring relevant and educational topics to the forefront. Since its inception, the series has provided virtual networking opportunities for Team Schein Members throughout the pandemic, addressing the need to remain connected while working from home. PRIDE & ALLIES has partnered with local and national organizations, hosted interactive workshops to facilitate conversations about marriage equality and gender pronouns, supported World AIDS Day, and encouraged open dialogues to create an inclusive and diverse network of perspectives, resources, and support for Team Schein Members.
Throughout 2021, PRIDE & ALLIES continued to strengthen its foundation by hosting multiple marketing, philanthropic, public support, and recruitment activities to foster engagement with Team Schein Members, the LGBTQ+ community, and professional organizations. These efforts included participating in workplace forums to develop relationships with small, disadvantaged businesses, including but not limited to: veteran-owned, HUBZone, LGBTQ+, and ethnic/racial, minority, or women-owned small businesses. PRIDE & ALLIES also sponsored a virtual 5K walk in celebration of Pride Month, and regularly publishes educational toolkits to highlight not only the unique experiences of team members who belong to multiple underrepresented groups, but also information on how to be an ally to the LGBTQ+ community.
