Across the globe we see the celebration of wonderful cultural moments. In living up to our mission statement – “to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more”, we here at Microsoft provide solutions to empower organizations to celebrate these cultural moments with their employees throughout the year.
We are introducing Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) cultural site templates. Our first cultural template we are delivering celebrates Pride Month (June 2022). There is a lot of content and structure that appears by default – to save you time – and all can be further customized to meet the unique needs of your organization.
The LGBTQ+ Employee Resource Group site:
This leverages the modern experience built on SharePoint in Microsoft 365. The new site template is available for use from the SharePoint look book | 'LGBTQ+ Employee Resource Group' site.
The LGBTQ+ Employee Resource Group site features:
- Home page with a unique theme
- Page Template
- Pre-populated content and web parts
- Easy provisioning
- Mobile ready
You will be able to quickly create communication to uplift employee resource groups, support career growth of people in your organization, and to help advance equality and allyship for all.
Other cultural D&I site templates we are working on:
- Hispanic Heritage Month
- National Disability Employment Awareness Month
- Native American/Indigenous Heritage Month
- Veterans Day
- International Day of Persons with Disabilities
