It’s June, which means it’s Pride month! One of our core values at Intermitten is diversity. So while we celebrate LGBTQIA pride all year long, we love having a month dedicated to honoring our LGBTQIA community members — both within Intermitten and beyond.
This year, we decided to put together a list of some of the fun ways that the Intermitten community is celebrating Pride month.
One of the ways that longtime sponsor Duo Security will celebrate Pride is by featuring LGBTQIA people on their team and in infosec:
All this month in celebration of #Pride, we’ll be featuring LGBTQIA folks from our team and in the broader security industry. 🏳️🌈 #WeAreDuo #infosec #OutInInfoSec #PrideMonth pic.twitter.com/EPuyUZoXwY
