T. Rowe Price Celebrates Virtual Pride

Blog

Every year during June and July, our associates around the world come together to participate in a broad range of activities in celebration of Pride. Even as the coronavirus pandemic impacts worldwide events and with hundreds of parades and events postponed or canceled, there is still an opportunity to bring about awareness on a global level—and to celebrate milestones like the U.S. Supreme Court's decision. This year, we embarked on a new direction and are using virtual events as a way to globally celebrate diversity and equality during these challenging times.

A Personal Journey to Make Science More Inclusive

Blog

Throughout my education and during the first decade of my career as a clinical pharmacologist, I carried a huge burden. Around classmates and colleagues, I held a secret about who I really was – I was in the closet.

I hid this part of my identity because, like many LGBTQ+ individuals, I feared that my sexual orientation would limit or even jeopardize my career. When I began my scientific training, I didn’t have any openly gay role models to consult or rely upon. Without a well-defined path forward, it made me question what my future in science would be.

The 30-person team came from different countries (U.S. Israel, India), different corporate cultures (including Cisco acquisitions CloudLock and OpenDNS), genders, backgrounds, and perspectives.

Q&A With VF's Laura Meagher on the US Equal Rights Amendment

Blog

While the U.S. Constitution was founded on the principle of equality for all, the right to be free of discrimination based on sex is not currently an explicit right provided to Americans in the Constitution. The Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) seeks to remedy that gap and explicitly guarantee equality on the basis of sex, making gender equality a basic constitutional right. Recently, VF joined a number of other companies as an amici curiae in support of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
