Marching with Pride
We may be physically distanced, but PacMed is still committed to marching alongside our LGBTQ patients, employees, vendors and community-at-large. Here’s how to join us, virtually, and support the full rainbow of our community.
PacMed has been a supporter of the Seattle Pride Fest for many years. And we look forward to doing more this year! To learn about current events or future activities being developed, stay-tuned to Seattle Pride.
Pride in PacMed and our health care system
Diversity and inclusion are defining characteristics of PacMed. We asked one of our valued team members to share their thoughts about PacMed and its support of Pride:
“I have attended the Seattle Pride parade with my girlfriend for several years as part of the LGBTQ+ community. When I heard that PacMed was participating in Pride, I was very excited to volunteer! To me, PacMed’s participation shows just how inclusive, accepting, diverse and open-minded our company is. It was great to walk in the parade while representing our company and showing our support and love for the LGBTQ+ community. I would like people to know that all of us at PacMed are here for YOU, your health, your needs, however you identify. PacMed is a judgement-free zone.”
