Celebrating Pride with Derek Piazza

Derek Piazza

We are excited to celebrate Pride Month in 2023 with our supporters, partners, and associates. Pride is a special month to us, as it gives us an opportunity to reflect on our commitment and support to the LGBTQIA+ community, something that is integral to the culture at Sea-Bird Scientific.  We celebrate Pride Month in June, and all year long to demonstrate our duty to members of the Pride community.

This year, we are excited to feature associates who are proud members and allies of the LGBTQIA+ community to showcase what Pride means to them, and how they celebrate.

This week, we are excited to feature Derek Piazza, Test Technician at Sea-Bird Scientific.

What does Pride Month mean to you?

Pride Month is a time dedicated to celebrating and advocating for the rights, visibility, and dignity of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) individuals. Pride Month serves as an opportunity to recognize and honor the contributions, struggles, and achievements of the LGBTQ+ community. Pride Month represents a time for reflection, celebration, and solidarity. It encourages individuals to embrace their authentic selves, affirm their identities, and stand up against discrimination and prejudice.
