Celebrating our Changemaker
Seagate is one of the top 5 employers in Boulder County and is the largest business employer in the City of Longmont. When employees gathered on 4/27/18 for their first Pride group, nearly 20 people attended including parents of trans and queer youth. Since then Seagate has been an incredible local partner and was the leading sponsor of the 2018 Longmont and Boulder Pride celebrations. We believe they deserve this year's award because they have touched the lives of so many in our community in such a short time.
