Beyond the Rainbow, MediaCom US’s latest Employee Resource Group
MediaCom US employees have come together to create Beyond the Rainbow (BTR), an employee resource group (ERG) geared towards the LGBTQ+ community and allies. BTR is committed to creating an inclusive work environment that celebrates and accepts diversity in all sexual orientations and gender identities through advocacy, support and measurable impact.
Founded by Karen Erasmus, People Operations and Performance and Tahitia Kavanagh, Senior Associate, International Integrated Planning, BTR held their first virtual event on August 10th to bring awareness and support to World Suicide Prevention Day.
By holding regular meetings, providing original programming, and partnering with GroupM ERG’s with similar missions, BTR will work to promote more tolerance and ally education in the workplace. BTR will serve as a judgment-free space contributing to building a community free of discrimination based on gender identity and expression, HIV status, and sexual orientation.
