Colgate PRIDE

The mission of the LBGTQ+ Pride Employee Resource Group is to promote an inclusive community for lesbian, bisexual, gay, transgender and queer employees. The Pride ERG will support Colgate's efforts to diversify staff and faculty, and will work to recruit and retain LBGTQ+ identified employees. The Pride ERG will serve as a visible, accessible resource for LBGTQ+ identified employees, staff and their allies and will provide LBGTQ+ focused networking, educational and social opportunities for the Colgate community. The Pride ERG is open to all currently-employed members of Colgate's faculty and staff.
