Pride in Business plays a crucial role in the community by creating networking opportunities for LGBTQIA2S+ professionals and entrepreneurs. Through events like Pride in Art, they strive to enhance visibility, support and commerce in the community and to be a positive example and influence on LGBTQIA2S+ youth and young professionals.

At Shane Homes, we believe in the power of community and the importance of fostering an inclusive environment where everyone feels valued and respected.

I have always wanted to give back to this community, and Pride in Business provided me with an opportunity to do so“, says Shane Wenzel, CEO of Shane Homes Group of Companies.

Coming out was relatively easy for me in comparison to some others, and coming out at work is no exception. Not all professionals are easily accepted, and by offering this assistance and making myself visible, we help to normalize things“.

As we continue to support initiatives that promote inclusivity and diversity, we look forward to witnessing the positive impact of events like Pride in Art on our community. Shane Homes is committed to building not just houses, but a sense of belonging and pride in every neighbourhood we serve.
