June serves as Pride month, which was chosen to commemorate the Stonewall riots that occurred in New York City at the end of June 1969.  This moment served as a catalyst for the LGBT rights movement and is a reminder of the importance of equality and inclusion in our lives.  Because of this, many events are held during this month to recognize the impact the LGBT community has made around the world. To do our part in commemorating Pride Month, Couchbase debuted a stylized profile image earlier this week, which can be seen across all of our social media channels:  

To further show our support and commitment, Couchbase is distributing Pride pins to our employees around the world and planning Pride-related activities and celebrations throughout the summer.

Couchbase is committed to building a diverse workforce that sparks innovation, increases fulfillment, and maximizes our collective potential by fostering an environment where employees can be their best selves.  We are showing our pride for the unique individuals who comprise the strong foundation of our increasingly-diverse, World-Class team. I am proud of the team we’ve built and continue to build as Couchbase grows.
