Local Spotlight - Pride Month and Effective Communication Month (June 2024)

June is Pride Month, National Safety Month and Effective Communication Month! SCORE Columbus has some content to share covering all three.

Pride Month

Happy Pride Month! Our friends over at Experience Columbus have curated an expansive list of LGBTQIA+ owned Columbus businesses (they’re pretty good at this sort of thing). You’ll find restaurants, bakeries, bars, gift and other retail stores, health and personal care businesses, home services and more. Take a look and try out a new offering!


Effective Communication Month

Communication is a tool that is essential in both business and life. To be effective in business, it is critical to understand the needs of others, communicate your offering, position or point of view and reach mutual understandings. Especially if you haven’t spent much time trying to improve your communication skills, we would recommend taking the opportunity. Below we have included a great list of tips to help you in the workplace and if you’re ready to build some serious skills, consider becoming a Toastmaster and practicing public speaking!


2024 Weekly Safety Topics

National Safety Month

Now is a good time for both individuals and business owners to remind themselves of the importance of safety in our lives and in the workplace. The National Safety Council has us prepared with a list of safety topics by week. Check out their site for more.


As always, thanks for reading and Happy Pride, National Safety and Effective Communication Month! - SCORE Columbus
