Happy National Coming Out Day!

Meet Erica Madera, our social media specialist. She not only ensures our brand shines but also weaves stories that connect us to the human experience. To honor National Coming Out Day, Erica brings together two Fortive colleagues, Krista Gilbert and Alan Golombeck, to share their inspiring journeys in both work and life.

What does Pride mean to you? 

How do you think we can get more LGBT people in corporate positions and careers? 

What do you wish more people knew or asked you about in regard to LGBT culture? 

What is PRIDE Across Fortive?

Who is your favorite drag queen? 

To our incredible queer team members at both ServiceChannel and the entire Fortive family, we extend our heartfelt gratitude. Your courage and visibility on the front lines of corporate LGBT acceptance are truly inspiring, and we’re immensely proud you are a part of our team.

To our allies, we invite you to join this vital conversation and support equality for all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. There are countless ways to contribute, from speaking out against discrimination to educating yourself about LGBT issues and supporting LGBT businesses and organizations.

Each of their journeys has been unique, but Erica, Alan, and Krista all agree on one thing: While National Coming Out Day is a one-day celebration, the conversation should be a year-round commitment.
