CBS Corporation Goes ALL OUT for Spirit Day

CBS went all out on Spirit Day, so much so that GLAAD gave a special online shout out to talent from numerous CBS shows and employees from across the country who dressed in purple and took a stand against bullying and in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) youth. On Oct. 17, talent from many of our shows, including BIG BROTHER, SHAMELESS, STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, THE PRICE IS RIGHT, FBI, MOM, MAGNUM P.I. and YOUNG SHELDON participated, along with hundreds of CBS on-camera and off-camera employees who took selfies using the hashtag #CBSPRIDE and posted online support messages. Some CBS locations collaborated on special events with their local CBS Pride LGBTQ+ employee resource groups.

Also, check out the recognition we got from GLAAD. Learn more about CBS Diversity & Inclusion initiatives by visiting cbscorporation.com/diversity/

SHOWTIME, CBS Pride Support Out for Undergrad Students
