Founded in 1994, the Department of Justice Pride (DOJ Pride) serves as the recognized organization for all Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered (LGBT) employees working in the Department of Justice’s offices, boards and divisions. Over the years, DOJ Pride has worked within the Department of Justice to identify and address key areas affecting its LGBT employees. DOJ Pride also provides an important resource for current and prospective employees. Besides conducting outreach to prospective employees, DOJ Pride sponsors brown-bag lectures featuring experts in the LGBT community discussing issues of importance to DOJ Pride members, such as marriage equality. Finally, through its yearly Pride Month Celebration and Award Ceremony, DOJ Pride has taken an active role in recognizing the work of LGBT supporters inside the Department of Justice, the Federal Government, and the Nation.

Finally, DOJ Pride provides a useful resource for managers, “LGBT Inclusion at Work: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Managers” to better help offices create an environment that is welcome and supportive of all employees, including LGBT employees.
