June is Pride Month!
In June of 1969, the inequalities and injustices faced by the LGBTQIA+ community vaulted into public consciousness with the Stonewall uprising. At the time, police raids on gay bars were common, but a raid of the Stonewall Inn—one of the few safe spaces for the most marginalized people, including transgender people, sex workers, and young, homeless members of the queer community—erupted into days of protests. It is because of the activism of the LGBTQIA+ community at the Stonewall uprising that Pride month is celebrated in June. BIPOC, women, and transgender people played key roles in the uprising, and to honor those contributions, Pride must include a recognition of intersectionality and the unique injustices faced by individuals who belong in multiple marginalized groups. At F5, we are committed to doing the right thing; that means creating safe spaces for the voices that are most likely to go unheard.
Amplify the voices of Black Americans in celebration of Juneteenth
On June 19, 1865, Union Army general Gordon Granger proclaimed freedom from slavery in Texas. Although the anniversary of that day is now celebrated as Juneteenth, commemorating the emancipation of the people who had been enslaved in the U.S., it wasn’t until the ratification of the 13th amendment to the Constitution that slavery was abolished nationwide. The two and a half years between Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation and General Granger’s announcement, and the 6 months that passed between that announcement and the ratification of the thirteenth amendment are emblematic of the ongoing need for us to identify and eliminate inequality and bias, and to amplify the voices of BIPOC in our communities. The F5 community is delighted to celebrate freedom and equality this Juneteenth!
Honoring the Perseverance of Women in Engineering
Each year, on June 23rd, we honor the contributions that women make to the engineering field throughout the year. In 2021, it is more important than ever to acknowledge and support the contributions of women in STEM. In recognition of the fact that pandemic-related changes to the way we work have had an adverse impact on women in particular, we at F5 are committed to improving representation of women in STEM. We honor the work of women, including the #EngineeringHeroes within F5 and beyond.
