Understanding and Appreciating Pioneer Day, a Latter-day Saint Holiday

Articles Jul 20, 2021

Latter-day Saint employees are an essential part of many companies' workforces yet often receive little dedicated attention as a demographic group. One way to create a greater sense of belonging for Latter-day Saint employees is by acknowledging and sharing educational resources about Pioneer Day, a Latter-day Saint Holiday, as part of your organization-wide diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) strategy.

Additionally, you should also ensure that people of all religions, spiritualities, and cultural backgrounds, including Latter-day Saints, are protected by your company’s systems and policies. That means ensuring that your non-discrimination policy explicitly covers religious beliefs.
