For the third consecutive year, AXA participated in NYC Pride and continued its Gold Sponsorship of the organization.
Employees, friends and family members donned AXA shirts and marched down Fifth Avenue on June 26, showing their support for the LGBT community. Employee participation in this event continues to grow with more than 240 registered attendees for the Pride March. After the March, AXA continued to celebrate during Pride Fest, where AXA’s booth gave away fun prizes like neck pillows, waterproof pouches, drawstring bags, and pens.
AXA’s involvement in NYC Pride is championed by AXA Pride, an employee resource group composed of lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender employees and allies. AXA Pride is dedicated to creating and sustaining an AXA presence in the LGBT community and promoting equality for all employees.
AXA also celebrated Pride at our other primary office locations. On June 18th, AXA participated in (CNY) Pride in Syracuse and AXA is proud to sponsor the Charlotte Pride Parade and Festival on August 20-21st.
AXA Advisors hosted their annual LGBT Summit July 14-15 in San Francisco. This educational conference is attended by our diverse and dedicated teams of financial professionals and provides a forum to discuss how best to serve the life and retirement needs of the LGBT community.
