“We are thrilled to have Michaela Mendelsohn, a long-time activist and respected trans woman in business today, as this year’s LA Pride Parade Grand Marshal,” said Estevan Montemayor, CSW Board President. “Michaela has been a strong LGBTQ+ advocate, especially by working to boost the hiring and inclusion of trans people in the workplace.”
