June is nationwide PRIDE month, and WEDBUSH is joining the celebration of the LGBTQ community. This month-long celebration traces its roots back to the watershed Stonewall Riots in June of 1969 in Greenwich Village NYC; a spontaneous protest by thousands of demonstrators against the perpetual police harassment and discrimination suffered by the Gay community. This 6-day long demonstration is widely considered the turning point in the fight for LGBTQ civil rights.
Wedbush is committed to creating a remarkedly inclusive environment where everyone of our colleagues believes they genuinely belong. This pledge is core to our goal of becoming the best place to work ever! We cherish the diversity of our teammates as a vital strength of the firm and a major advantage for our clients.
