Wilson Center Celebrates LGBTQI+ Pride Month 2023

As we welcome the month of June, we also celebrate Pride Month. It's a special time of year when we honor, acknowledge, and uplift the experiences, achievements, and history of the LGBTQ+ community. This is not just a time for celebration, but also a moment for reflection and commitment to making our world a more equitable, inclusive, and accepting place. The Wilson Center stands proudly with our LGBTQ+ colleagues, partners, and friends, both within our organization and around the world. Our commitment to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion is unwavering. We believe that the rich diversity of perspectives contributes to robust research and a vibrant scholarly community.

Understanding that LGBTQ+ rights are human rights, we are dedicated to fostering an environment that respects all individuals, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or expression. We are committed to ensuring that every scholar, student, and staff member can thrive in an atmosphere free from discrimination and bias.

This Pride Month, we renew our dedication to these principles and pledge to continue our work towards a more inclusive future. We will continue to seek opportunities for dialogues that address and challenge prejudice and discrimination against the LGBTQ+ community and, through our research, we will strive to contribute to a greater understanding and acceptance of the vast spectrum of human experience and identity.
