Creating a Safe Space for All. 

Spaulding Ridge PROUD provides comprehensive support for all of our LGBTQ+ employees, while expanding our company’s understanding and embrace for the LGBTQ+ community. We do this through learning and connection opportunities, by advising on company policies, and providing charitable support, all with a focus on intersectionality and allyship.  

PROUD at Spaulding Ridge works to builda safe and thriving environment for our LGBTQ+ people, and to amplify their voices and contributions to our culture and success. 

Pillars of PROUD at Spaulding Ridge


As Spaulding Ridge’s LGBTQ+ resource group, PROUD advises the executive team and the company overall on how our policies and procedures can be more inclusive, more supportive, and more effective, and we advocate for the resources that our LGBTQ+ employees need to be their whole, authentic selves at work.  PROUD also partners with our Learning & Development and HR departments to review & suggest inclusive training options & policies that Spaulding Ridge can work towards implementing. 


PROUD creates space for dialogue & conversation to foster allyship and understanding within the band and beyond, holding regular discussions and providing resources to allies. Past topics have included: Pronounsand Gender Identity; Juneteenth and Pride; and Allyship. 


PROUD runs yearly fundraisers for organizations working towards the rights of the LGBTQ+ community. Past fundraisers have included The Human Rights Campaign, OutRight International, & True Colors. We also partner with our Community Outreach committee to create more in person volunteer opportunities with additional organizations near our headquarters.  


“At Spaulding Ridge, when we’re welcoming and supportive to all employees regardless of their sexual orientation and gender identity, we’re living out our first value that All Business is Personal.”
