Sentieo values diversity and believes that diverse teams make innovation possible. (We are hiring!). One of the exercises that we are doing for Pride Month is taking a look at how Corporate America is celebrating, by using our industry-leading Document Search technology. Check out our findings below.
Pride Month Is Growing!
Mentions of “Pride Month” in US corporate press releases for public companies were practically non-existent in 2012, but in 2018 and 2019, we see about 20 press releases. (Interactive chart)
Who Were The “Early Adopters?”
Our search results show that Hyatt, Marriott, PNC Bank, Comcast, Macy’s, Southwest Airlines, The Knot, and CBS were talking about pride in 2012-2013.
What Caught Our Eye In 2019?
Baidu now has a special Pride edition for its Facemoji keyboard app. (See full press release here).
United Airlines is hosting its first ever Drag Brunch at Newark Airport. (See full press release here).
