We here at Trupanion have come together to celebrate Pride this month. Pride is a month to celebrate love, acceptance, authenticity, individuality, and diversity in our personal and professional endeavors. We embrace the ideals of what Pride stands for and truly welcome this as a part of our family culture. We sat down with Amy Kirsh (Tru-Pride creator ) to detail Tru-Pride‘s celebrations in the workplace and in our community.
How Trupanion observes and honors Pride Month
Trupanion Tru-Pride culture
Trupanion believes every that every team member should be able to express themselves exactly how they are. This space exists to provide the LGBTQIA+ team members ( and allies) to feel safe and comfortable being themselves at work. Take the time to celebrate you and who you are!
What is Tru-Pride?
Tru-pride is a group made up of Trupanion team members who are either a part of the LGBTQIA+ community or an ally of this community. In addition, this community is a trust-worthy space that provides a supportive network to create allies within the company. Further, this group fosters creative relationships across departments and provides a fun space to hang out and make memories.
“I created Tru-Pride not only to be a support system for our community that is already in place, but also for the new hires to know immediately there is a safe space for them” states on-site Trupanion recruiting manager and Tru-Pride creator, Amy Kirsch.

This group meets on a monthly basis, and June was no exception. Additionally, Tru- Pride events include: “dress like a rainbow day”, the official creation of Trupanion team member Pride t-shirts, a puppy kissing booth and a DIY rainbow glasses for craft night.
Tru-Pride and our community
As we celebrate Pride together in the month of June we have found it is a joyful way for our team members to come together to network, socialize, make lasting friendships and memories. Happy Pride!
