ZSers Celebrate LGBTQ Pride Month with Love Walls, Open Dialogue and Office-Wide Festivities

Posted by ZS on Jul 12, 2018 11:00:00 AM

Throughout the month of June, in celebration of LGBTQ Pride Month, ZSers came together to work on a very special project. Natalie, an Evanston principal and leader within Pride@ZS, our LGBTQ and ally resource group, helped connect ZS offices around the world with The Love Wall Project—a massive multi-city initiative designed to spread messages of inclusivity and tolerance by confronting the traditional role walls play in our society.

While walls can divide, restrict and exclude, a love wall does the opposite. It’s a platform for connection, free expression and inclusivity. ZSers contributed their unique interpretations of diversity, messages of tolerance and inspirational quotes. Together, the pieces composed a mosaic, creating a collective image of a global ZS community.

Juggling a career in consulting with fatherhood can prove to be an arduous task. Thankfully, many ZS fathers have discovered that even amid project work and busy travel schedules, the firm’s flexible nature allows them to have plenty of downtime to spend with their children.

Eric, an associate principal in Toronto, is the proud father of 20-month-old baby Harlow, who is just beginning to “figure out the world”.

“I love the fact that ZS allows me to flex where, when and how I need to so that I'm around and available for as many of the moments as possible,” he says. As a new father, Eric has learned to treasure certain special moments like wake-up and bedtime.
