Happy Pride, Winnipeg!

 As a proud supporter of the LGBTQ2+ community for more than a decade, TD is thrilled to support the 2018 Pride Winnipeg Festival and help drive change to create a more inclusive society.

At TD, we recently launched The Ready Commitment, our new Global Corporate Citizenship platform which is helping open doors to a more inclusive tomorrow where everyone has the confidence in what tomorrow brings and feels connected to their community.

Embracing diversity and respecting one another is something we all strive for and, as a result, TD is a place where people are encouraged to bring their whole selves to work each and every day and feel supported no matter who they are.

Today, we have more than 3,000 passionate LGBTQ2+ employees and allies in our employee resource groups, and support over 160 LGBTQ2+ community initiatives and 83 Pride festivals across North America.

Our commitment to connecting communities builds on our history of supporting the LGBTQ2+ community over the years. And we will continue to make strides to ensure that everyone feels included and welcome, and that their voices are being heard.

From coast-to-coast, our long-lasting partnership with Pride Winnipeg, and other festivals, embodies exactly what The Ready Commitment is all about.

Thank you to all of the organizers, dedicated volunteers and thousands of Winnipeggers who make Pride Winnipeg a huge success.

 

 Happy Pride!

2018 Community Feature: Adam & Eve

The store owners and staff here at Adam and Eve are so pleased to support PRIDE.  We feel that so many people in the GLBT2TQ* community have supported our mission in creating a welcoming, sex positive space in Winnipeg and we want to honor that level of commitment.  “My First Pride” is a brilliant way of learning more about each other and acknowledging what each individual person faces when coming out to their community. We have been listening to people’s stories in our space and now we have also been able to read people’s stories online. Thank you for sharing your unique journey with us.

We want to support and celebrate the strength and resilience each of you have demonstrated time and time again.  At the end of the day we are a community that is beautiful, diverse and full of pride.  We are proud to be inter connected and want to celebrate your spirit amidst such adversity.  As G. Takei has gracefully stated and we here at Adam and Eve fully embrace   “We should indeed keep calm in the face of difference and live our lives in a state of inclusion and wonder at the diversity of humanity.”

Warm regards,

Rosa Colavito-Palao
