Bonus Episode: Pride Month with Ari Copeland

In this special bonus episode of the podcast, you will hear Charli interview Ari Copeland, Water Operations Specialist with Black & Veatch. Ari was featured as the Industry Person of the Week back in May, and we liked him so much we had to have him on as a guest of the podcast.

Ari talks about his journey in his 16+ year career in the water industry and then about the work he is doing to advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community in the workplace as well as the world in general.

He shares tips on how individuals can be better allies and companies can do a better job implementing and executing diversity and inclusion strategies.

Lastly, Ari shares the history of Pride Month and why it is important to him and so many other people that we celebrate this historic event each year.
