Louis Vuitton Celebrates Pride Month in Partnership with NYC SYEP
In celebration of Pride month, Louis Vuitton Americas hosted a panel with New York City’s Department of Youth and Community Development and Summer Youth Employment Program’s Pride group (NYC DYCD | SYEP Pride) on career conversations. The panel featured internal voices representing the LGBTQIA+ community, discussing career development with the LGBTQIA+ youth.
The event opened with remarks from Shona Pinnock, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Vice President for Louis Vuitton Americas, Keith Howard, Commissioner for NYC Department of Youth and Community Development, and Ronald Porcelli, Acting Executive Director for NYU Unity Project. Throughout the conversation, attendees learned about Louis Vuitton’s brand heritage and available initiatives supporting the LGBTQIA+ community, including the AllLVMH Pride ERG (employee resource group). The panel was followed by a networking event offering attendees the opportunity to connect further with Louis Vuitton employees.
