On June 25, Northbrook-based Astellas demonstrated support of its LGBTQ employees, communities and issues by flying the Pride Flag at its headquarters for the Americas in June, participating for the sixth year in the Chicago Pride Fest parade and hosting an educational session with anti-bullying leaders, Jane and James Clementi, from the Tyler Clementi Foundation.

Jane and James Clementi spoke to hundreds of employees live and via webcast about their new #Day1 campaign that aims to stop bullying in schools, workplaces and faith communities.

On June 28, more than 150 Astellas employees and their family members wore Pride T-shirts and took part in the 46th annual Chicago Pride Parade. Astellas also hosted a booth on June 20-21 at the Chicago Pride Fest, educating attendees on the resources available for at-risk youth in the LGBTQ community.
