It’s Pride Month!

Welcome to Pride Month, the annual month-long opportunity to uplift LGBTQIA+ voices around the world. Pride Month was initially inspired by the 1969 Stonewall Uprising to help achieve equal justice and opportunity for LGBTQIA+ people. Since 1999, Pride Month has been observed to recognize the impact that these individuals have had on society locally, nationally, and internationally, and to support enhanced equity and inclusion.

Over the coming weeks, we will offer content and resources to complement the remarkable efforts of our Proud & Professional employee network.

Marsh-Fest Music Festival: Celebrating Heritage

Intact recently celebrated Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Heritage Month with the Marsh Asian Colleague Resource Group in Los Angeles. Our friends at Marsh, including their Hispanic Organization of Leadership Association (HOLA) and African Heritage Colleague Resource Group, in collaboration with the Asian American Insurance Network (AAIN), hosted “Marsh-Fest” — a concert celebrating and uplifting local Asian American, Hispanic, and Black artists.

We are glad our colleagues, Peter Burt, Beth Lopez, Janet Pablo and Travis Sturms were able to join this sold-out event!

Sundaes on a Wednesday

Springtime in Anaheim provided our local team with their first volunteer opportunity with the Orangewood Foundation, their local community engagement partner. The Foundation helps almost 2,000 youth annually prepare for independent adulthood, with day-to-day services including a meal every weekday.

This volunteer outing included preparing and serving lunch at the Orangewood Resource Center in Santa Ana for Orangewood’s youths. They served deli sandwiches, chips, fruit bowls, topped off by ice cream sundaes. Rosie Rivera who is leading the partnership shared, “Our team of volunteers voiced how heartwarming it was to witness the combination of excitement and gratefulness from the youth when we served them a fresh lunch.  In our eyes it was a simple meal to prepare; to the youth they felt cared for and loved.”

Here are some pictures from that day!

Celebrating Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month!

Welcome to Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Heritage Month! This national celebration honors the historical and cultural contributions of the AANHPI people to America. The month of May was chosen to commemorate the immigration of the first Japanese to the U.S. on May 7, 1843, and the completion of the first transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869 – as the majority of the workers who laid the tracks were Chinese immigrants.

This year’s AANHPI Heritage Month theme is “Advancing Leaders Through Opportunity.” We look forward to sharing insights through some employee profiles. In the meantime, below are several resources to learn more:
