Virtual Pride Celebrations
Maple Leaf Foods and Prides & Allies hosted several virtual events dedicated to LGBTQ+ individuals and allies.
This year, Maple Leaf Foods continued the Pride celebrations by holding a “Virtual Flag Raising” ceremony to show our continued support for the LGBTQ+ communities. Going virtual also meant getting creative with a virtual drag lunch, unique virtual meeting backgrounds and virtual ally cards. The support continued, as the very first flag to fly at our Maple Leaf Agri-Farms facilities was the Pride flag, which aligned to Manitoba’s provincial Pride celebrations.
Maple Leaf Foods and our Pride & Allies team highlighted a number of Maple Leaf Foods LGBTQ+ employees, individuals and allies. A cross-section of our people at all levels was spotlighted to share their stories.
