Making sure our Pride shines all year round

Pride Month is a fantastic opportunity for us all to show visible support for the LGBTQ+ community and stand up for the right to be your authentic self. You’ve probably seen your fair share of companies adding splashes of color to their social media profiles in June. You may have even received some rainbow swag from corporate as part of your company’s Pride Month celebrations.

While we love to go big in June too, we fully recognize that Pride is more than a moment in time. That’s why we’re continuously partnering with our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Center of Excellence and our LGBTAllies Employee Resource Group (ERG) to encourage pronoun use, inspire open dialogue, and offer learning opportunities to engage our team members. The same is true for our inclusive benefits, because gender-affirming care and fertility treatments for same-sex couples aren’t just needed one month out of the year.

Pride is a huge part of our global culture of inclusion

Strategy and guidance

Our DEI Global Council ensures that the LGBTQ+ community is woven into the work we do — from our partner solutions to our supplier diversity program.

Celebration events and activities

We participate in Pride Month globally and continue hosting panels, advocacy activities, volunteer opportunities, and much more throughout the year.

Training and education

We offer DEI-focused leadership tools and a comprehensive inclusion learning journey for all our team members to inspire allyship and reduce unconscious bias.

Tracking and transparency

Through our Global Inclusion Index, we're able to evaluate representation across the enterprise, measure belonging, and share results through our annual DEI Report.


Pride 2023 was a special celebration like no other

From our global Pride celebration to all the inclusive events planned by our LGBTAllies ERG, our team members and leaders from around the world joined together once again during the month of June to strengthen our commitment to the LGBTQ+ community with more pride than ever before.

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Center of Excellence worked closely with LGBTAllies to make sure that every team member could feel comfortable celebrating in the ways that felt right for them. In the spirit of global inclusion, a wide variety of virtual activities were hosted to maximize accessibility, and team members were encouraged to get together in person for watch parties and other festivities. Thousands of people participated worldwide! Here’s a look back at everything that happened during Pride Month 2023.

Our history of Pride

Prior to the pandemic, our Pride celebrations centered around parades taking place in the cities closest to our U.S. office locations. We rallied our team members in those areas, sponsored floats, and marched together for LGBTQ+ rights and visibility. Then in 2020, we quickly had to pivot our plans and transition to a virtual approach. We traded in our Pride poster boards for colorful Teams backgrounds instead and launched all kinds of new programming, like AmerisourceBergen’s Got Talent, Pride Trivia Night, and more.

Today, we’re applying what we learned during the pandemic to host hybrid events and activities that enable everyone to participate. Take a look at some of our past Pride photos to see moments that paved the way for the inclusive global celebrations we’re hosting now.


Following the lead of our ERG


The driving force behind our Pride initiatives is our LGBTAllies ERG. Spearheaded by a small but dedicated leadership team and supported by more than a thousand engaged members, our ERG works all year around to make our company one of the most diverse, inclusive, and LGBTQ-friendly businesses in the Fortune 500.

LGBTAllies hosts activities that empower all our team members to support LGBTQ+ people locally and globally through meaningful advocacy and allyship. They educate everyone about the latest issues impacting the LGBTQ+ community as a whole. And most importantly, they create space to express ourselves, share our stories, and listen to the experiences of others. It’s through the tireless efforts of this group that our culture continues to evolve in all the right ways.

Supporting LGBTQ-owned businesses

Young business

We proactively seek out diverse suppliers, especially those that are owned, operated, and controlled by LGBTQ+ entrepreneurs. Not only is supplier diversity the foundation of a competitive economy, but it’s also one of the best ways to tap into the latest innovations, as well as products tailored to communities where their needs aren’t being met by the mainstream. By connecting with LGBTQ-owned suppliers, we get closer to the community so we can ensure we’re giving our customers the products, solutions, and guidance they need to deliver the best care possible to LGBTQ+ individuals.

Are you an LGBTQ+ business owner? Register here to become one of our diverse suppliers.
