Heard@Harvard – Pride

Ellie Thompson

06 Jul 2021

Last week, Pride Month came to an end.

Harvard’s content for the month involved two Twitter takeovers highlighting LGBTQ+ tech icons and a list of our recommended educational content. Resharing previous articles from our employees, as well as a new blog on ‘Why Coming Out Should be a Thing of the Past’.

Our final piece of content is our eleventh episode of Heard@Harvard, which we’ve purposely waited until after Pride Month to go live with.


Because we want conversations around LGBTQ+ rights, representation issues and inclusion in the workplace to happen all year round and not just during the month of Pride.

Our guests for this episode were Nicky Hoyland, CEO at MCG and Huler and our very own Jo Franklin, Director here at Harvard. The conversation focused on what Pride means to them and also what businesses need to do to ensure Pride isn’t tokenistic and instead use it as a moment to create longer term change.

We hope you enjoy.
