Leadership & Business Roadmap LGBTQ+ Pride Month – June 2022

“Hope will never be silent.” – Harvey Milk

LGBTQ+ Pride Month is celebrated in June to commemorate the Stonewall riots of 1969 with the goal of achieving equal justice and equal opportunity for LGBTQ+ Americans. Here at Skillsoft, the theme for 2022 Pride Month is Learn/ Love/ Lead in support of GLSEN. The month raises awareness and educates the general public about issues affecting the LGBTQ+ population worldwide. Whether you identify as LGBTQ+ or as an Ally, the Skillsoft Leadership and Business Content team invites you to celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride Month with us by watching, reading, or listening to one of our many LGBTQ+ Community resources.

OFF THE SHELF celebrates LGBTQ+ Pride throughout the month of June by offering a bookshelf of resources that honor and recognize LGBTQ+ language, culture, history, and heroes.

In addition, we celebrate Juneteenth, a combination of the words "June" and "nineteenth," which commemorates the day in 1865 when a group of enslaved people in Galveston, Texas had been released from slavery. On this day, Skillsoft reflects upon the abolition of slavery and the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans throughout the US while also celebrating African-American culture.

OFF THE SHELF recognizes and celebrates Juneteenth by presenting a bookshelf of resources which commemorate the end of slavery while also highlighting the continued journey toward racial justice and inclusive workplaces.

The OFF THE SHELF monthly selection for June is The Journey Beyond Fear: Leverage the Three Pillars of Positivity to Build Your Success by John Hagel III, © 2021, McGraw Hill.

Uncertainty has been the name of the game for years―and the feeling reached an all-time high when COVID-19 hit. Even the savviest, smartest, toughest people are understandably feeling enormous pressure and often feeling paralyzed by fear. The Journey Beyond Fear provides everything you need to identify your fears, face your fears, move beyond your fears―and cultivate emotions that motivate you to pursue valuable business opportunities, realize your full potential, and create opportunities that benefit all.

This selection is available on Percipio as a digital book and a Book Summary.
