We love the diverse and inclusive community the co-op provides for both our customers and staff. Read what some of our employees say pride means to them:
“Pride has many definitions: a group of lions; pleasure or satisfaction from one’s achievements; the best in a group or class; or my personal favorite, a celebration of inclusivity and achievements in equality.
“Pride to me means being able to comfortably express and celebrate one’s true self-identity and enabling others to feel the same way about themselves. I am really lucky to be a part of an inclusive company at the Table and TCCP. I am proud of the work we get to do here, being able to serve the people of the Whittier community and the Twin Cities as a whole!”
“Pride means the ability to live your life out loud. To be the most authentic expression of yourself there is, whatever that means to you and however you feel comfortable sharing. The world can be a dark place, and allowing people to be themselves with freedom and acceptance is a true gift. To me – pride means kindness and joy and expression. Who doesn’t want more of that?!”
“Pride is a feeling I get when I’m on stage performing. It’s like a high no one can take from you. Pride is your best character.”
‘As Wellness Manager at Linden Hills Coop and Wedge Coop I have so much PRIDE in the organization I get to be a part of everyday. Working for Coops that PRIDE themselves on inclusion, respect and integrity is so empowering to me as an employee and member of our community. The Coops provide so much more than a place to shop, they provide a safe, open place where ALL ARE TRULY WELCOME, I am so PROUD to work and shop at the Linden Hills Coop and the Wedge Coop where we can really make a difference!’
