  • A strong diverse community in the 2023 QC Pride March with 110,000+ participants.
  • RingCentral was proudly represented by its 181-strong delegation of employees including new hires, leaders, allies, and members of LGBTQ+.

On June 24, 2023, an estimated 110,000+ individuals joined the Pride March in Quezon City, Philippines—the largest Pride event ever recorded in Southeast Asia.”

The origin of this celebration goes back to the historic 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan—when the LGBTQ+ community stood up against discrimination and oppression.

This global campaign now tells the tale of courage and resilience as people come together in an inspiring Pride festival.

New hire, new experience

Making a strong entrance, 20 out of our 181 delegates were newly hired—starting their journey with RingCentral by celebrating in solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community and its cause.

As a new hire, I've found this company very supportive of inclusion... I was able to feel the belongingness… Being able to show how we stand together; no age, no color. That’s why I brought my daughter. This is not only for adults but also for kids.

Orange in Rainbow

Today is the day we enjoy the rainbow! Joined by our very own leaders, teammates, their friends, and families. This has been the strongest (to date) alliance our community has showcased—marching towards a more inclusive future.

A diverse and inclusive workplace is an environment where everyone feels heard and seen. Everyone feels comfortable expressing themselves without fear of being judged.
