Pride Flag Is Raised at Three US Micron Sites

By Michelle Hicks - 2020-06-12

At Micron, our people are our most important resource and a critical driver of our competitive advantage.

And that’s why Micron was proud to raise the Pride flag at three of our U.S. sites on June 1, the first day of Pride Month. The rainbow flags now fly over the Boise, Idaho; Lehi, Utah; and Manassas, Virginia, sites, symbolizing the company’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, both to our employees and to the communities where we operate. Micron’s executive team, including CEO Sanjay Mehrotra, participated in the Zoom flag-raising ceremony.

These three sites host established chapters of the Pride+ Allies employee resource group, with the Boise and Lehi chapters forming in 2017 and the Manassas one forming in 2019. Nearly 300 Micron employees belong to these chapters, and new chapters have been started at Micron sites in San Jose, California, and Longmont, Colorado.

Company leaders understand that employee resource groups (ERGs) like Pride+ Allies help Micron team members thrive as their authentic selves in the workplace and community. The company’s other ERGs include Micron Hispanic Professionals, Micron Young Professionals, Black Employee Network, Micron Women’s Leadership Network, Veterans’ Employee Resource Group, Tenured and Experienced @ Micron, and Capable. These ERGs benefit from a strong allyship model and provide forums for Micron team members to participate, learn and lend a hand — even if they don’t identify as a member of the group.
