WILSONVILLE, OR, USA, May 3, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Avamere Living Communities and Avamere Living Skilled Nursing are teaming up to sponsor Pride Northwest at the upcoming Portland Pride Waterfront Festival and Parade.

Avamere Living teams sponsor the Rainbow Package, which includes recognition at Pride Festival. This is the second year in a row that they have sponsored Pride Northwest.

“We are proud to partner with Pride NW to celebrate and support the LGBTQIA+ community,” said Kenny Dew, Regional Finance Manager and DEIB Manager of Avamere Living Communities. “Pride Northwest is doing important work and we are honored to support this organization and be allies alongside our LGBTQIA+ employees and the broader community.”

The sponsorship aligns with Avamere Living’s ongoing efforts in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) initiatives.

“We are honored to support Pride Northwest once again this year,” said Jessica Burkard, Division Director, Community and Supplier Engagement and DEIB Lead at Avamere Living. “Our goal under our DEIB initiative is to foster an environment where everyone feels like they belong, and standing as allies to learn about and celebrate the LGBTQIA+ experience aligns perfectly with that goal. “

The festival is one of the many ways Pride Northwest supports and brings visibility to the LGBTQIA+ community in Oregon and Southwest Washington. Pride Northwest’s mission is “to encourage and celebrate the positive diversity of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans communities, and to assist in the education of all through the development of activities that highlight the history, the achievements and talents of these communities. .”

The Portland Pride Waterfront Festival and Parade takes place at Tom McCall Waterfront Park in Portland, Oregon on June 18-19. Avamere Living teams will participate in the parade on June 19th.
