LGBTQIA Pride Month
LGBTQIA Pride Month is celebrated during the month of June, where the LGBTQIA community celebrates in a number of different ways. Across the globe, various events are held during this special month as a way of recognizing the influence LGBTQIA people have had around the world. Pride Month, rallying the Stonewall riots in Manhattan in 1969, remembers those who paved the way for this community and who continue to do so. Join IAEE in supporting the LGBTQIA community, bringing awareness to education and breaking down barriers! Change has been made, but so much more must take place! #PrideMonth
Here is a great message from past IAEE Women’s Leadership Keynote Speaker Risha Grant as she explains why embracing diversity is important and how we need to allow everyone in this world to be their authentic self and how individual differences aren’t a threat! Check out more from Risha Grant here.
International Day of Friendship – 30 July
Our world faces many challenges, crises and forces of division such as poverty, violence, and human rights abuses among many others, that undermine peace, security, development and social harmony among the world’s peoples. And now we are in crisis, coming back from a critical time in our lives. To confront those crises and challenges, their root causes must be addressed by promoting and defending a shared spirit of human solidarity that takes many forms, the simplest of which is friendship. Now more than ever this is so true! #ENDviolence, Spread Kindness
World Day Against Trafficking in Persons – 30 July
Human trafficking is a crime that exploits women, children and men for numerous purposes including forced labor and sex. Globally, countries are detecting and reporting more victims, and are convicting more traffickers. This can be the result of increased capacity to identify victims and/or an increased number of trafficked victims.
Every country in the world is affected by human trafficking, whether as a country of origin, transit, or destination for victims. Be aware and help support the fight!
