Pride Spotlight: Dr Guss Bussmann

In line with this year's Pride Month, Broadgate’s Josh Duggan sat down with the inspiring Dr Guss Bussmann. Hear about Guss' career journey, biggest career accomplishments, and what Pride means to him.

I am a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion professional, having transitioned from the legal practice after 10+ years as a lawyer. My passion for enabling a sense of belonging on people and being an instrument of transformative change led me to a profession where I build plans and strategies for companies committed to people’s experiences. As a DEI professional, my biggest accomplishments include improvement in workplace experiences, better commitments and positioning for brands, and to have found a path where I can unapologetically be myself. I talked about that when invited by Vogue Business to be on stage at their global conference last year.

To me, Pride is a celebration of how far we’ve came and a reminder that our rights today were not granted, but a result of fighting and of the courage of those who came before us. We proudly stand on the shoulders of LGBTQ+ heroes and should celebrate that, but also renew our strength to fight for those who don’t share the same privilege as ours.
