Pride Week is an initiative by the Zoo’s employee-driven diversity, equity, accessibility and inclusion (DEAI) committee. The DEAI group is committed to creating positive change at the Zoo and in our community.
We hope you can join in on the fun, and we look forward to hosting more DEAI celebrations in the future. Stay tuned!
