George Brown celebrates Pride Month!

The George Brown community celebrated Pride Month by raising the Pride flag high above King Street East in downtown Toronto. 

Students, staff and faculty gathered on the patio at 200 King St. E. at our St. James Campus on June 1. Chris McGrath, George Brown's new Vice President of Student Success, told the crowd how Pride celebrations highlight the importance of diversity and respect. 

"Conversations and the work of diversity, inclusion and equity can be tough, because they force us to examine who we are, and challenge what we believe; but as a post-secondary institution that is committed to these values, and how they help us to lift up our students and our employees, I consider myself so lucky to be in this place, where these conversations are ongoing, and where we continue to evolve as a community," McGrath said. 

Our Positive Space campaign reflects George Brown's commitment to create a community that is free of discrimination and harassment based on gender and sexual identity. You can learn more at georgebrown.ca/positivespace
