Several times a year, we head out as a team to support causes that are important to us as Loopers (Loopio employees). We call these special moments Impact Events because we want these events to make a difference in our communities.
In our first Impact Event this year, a group of Loopers volunteered for the kick-off day at Toronto’s 2019 Pride Parade. Loopers were outfitted with Pride Guides and Maps, and ushered people to various stages and events throughout the afternoon, acting as a welcome delegation. The summer sun was out and the crowds were dressed joyfully in their most colorful Pride gear. The day was electric.
Why We Participate in Pride
Everyone is welcome at Loopio - we are committed to recognizing, supporting, and celebrating the diversity of our employees and our customers. Bringing together the unique perspectives of a diverse group of people allows us to do our best possible work. By participating in Pride, we celebrated the queer community that exists at Loopio and gave back to the broader queer community in Toronto.
One of our company values is Support, because ultimate success comes from working as one team. Attending Pride was an opportunity for us to support our peers – support their ability to be their authentic selves, support the pride they feel in their identity, and show our support by celebrating Pride together. We can’t wait until next year!
We’re looking forward to making an impact at our upcoming events in 2019 by helping out at the Humane Society, cooking for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House, and tree-planting across Toronto.
