Friends of Ruby is grateful for 407 ETR’s support. We value their generosity in helping us to #GrowWithPride, raise awareness during PRIDE month, and continue to support 2SLGBTQIA+ youth in need. We want to share more about 407 ETR’s and their commitment to supporting the well-being of 2SLGBTQIA+ youth, so we asked them a few questions! 

Can you share with us why supporting 2SLGBTQIA+ youth in Toronto is important to 407 ETR’s and how this aligns with your corporate values? 

Supporting 2SLGBTQIA+ youth in the GTA is important to us at 407 ETR because we believe in creating a safe and inclusive environment for everyone. Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is executed daily by raising awareness, offering ongoing training to employees and always listening to feedback. Our commitments extend into our community, as we aim to form partnerships that align with our corporate values and social responsibility goals. 

Could you highlight any specific initiatives, programs, or contributions your organization has implemented as part of the #GrowWithPride campaign?   

This year, during Pride month, we hosted 407 ETR’s Annual Pride celebration, that included a walk, brunch and trivia for the 407 ETR team. We’re proud to support Friends of Ruby and learn about the importance of supporting 2SLGBTQIA+ youth in our communities and the impact of our gift. 

Is there anything that you would like to share about your experience collaborating with Friends of Ruby, or something that you have learnt about the mission that has had an impact?  

Collaborating with Friends of Ruby has been enlightening for 407 ETR. We’ve learned about the critical challenges 2SLGBTQIA+ youth face and the importance of providing them with supportive spaces. Their dedication to mental health and social services has inspired us to strengthen our own commitment to diversity and inclusion.
