Thompson Dorfman Sweatman LLP (TDS) is committed to equity, diversity and inclusion, and we are proud to celebrate Pride Month 2022. As one of our Core Values, diversity is at the forefront of all that we do. It informs our approach to client services, community involvement, and recruitment. Our aim is to ensure that our firm and our work both reflect and respect the diversity of the individuals we serve.
Each year, Pride is an opportunity to promote the dignity and equality of 2SLGBTQ+ persons, honour those who paved the way for the rights and freedoms that 2SLGBTQ+ persons enjoy today, and to reflect on those barriers that still exist for 2SLGBTQ+ persons in our communities. This year, while celebrating our differences at TDS and honouring the contributions our 2SLGBTQ+ colleagues, friends, and loved ones have made in our society, TDS is also encouraging everyone to learn more about the history of Pride, demonstrate and promote tolerance, and continue to provide a supportive environment where each individual can reach their full potential.

This year, TDS is proud to announce that it will be making a donation to the Rainbow Resource Centre’s Camp Aurora, Manitoba’s only camp for 2SLGBTQ+ youth. The camp runs for four days in August in the Whiteshell, providing a safe space where attendees can connect with 2SLGBTQ+ peers, and engage with and learn from positive role models. Donations like these allow the Rainbow Resource Centre to cover operational costs and waive the costs of attending for those youth who may otherwise be prevented due to financial restrictions.
