It's pride weekend in Charlotte, and we’re thrilled to announce that Stratifyd will be participating in the seventh annual Bank of America Charlotte Pride Parade on Sunday, August 18!

“As a company, we believe in leaving the world better than we found it,” Stratifyd CTO, Kevin O’Dell said. “We’re extremely excited to celebrate the diversity of Charlotte and want everyone to feel welcome no matter their gender, race, religion, or sexual orientation.”

Pride celebrations began as a way to pay tribute to the Stonewall Riots of 1969, with this year’s parade marking the 50th anniversary.

“As a member of the queer community, it’s extremely validating when your company participates in different events celebrating diversity,” Stratifyd Senior Marketing Director, Cara Walters said. “My personal goal for the Charlotte Pride Parade is to extend Stratifyd’s visibility to anyone queer in tech. It’s important for them to know that there are a lot of great options out there if you want to join a startup.”

Charlotte Pride is the leader in LGBTQ+ visibility in Charlotte and the Carolinas. Since its founding in 2000, Charlotte Pride has expanded its year-round programming and partnerships to better connect community members with its mission, vision, and values. It’s now one of the largest LGBTQ+ Pride organizations in the American Southeast.

The parade starts at 1 p.m. with the route spanning five city blocks of N. Tryon St. in Uptown Charlotte. To learn more about the event and Charlotte Pride, click here.
