RebelMouse Celebrates Pride

At RebelMouse, Pride Month isn't something we celebrate for only 30 days. (Although we do always welcome the party!) In reality, the LGBTQ+ community is responsible for the creation and framework of our entire company, including its culture and its successes.

Our founder and CEO Andrea Breanna is openly and proudly transgender, and has created a welcoming tech community for LGBTQ+ individuals that breaks industry standards: 23.3% of RebelMouse's employees identify as LGBTQ+, which is nearly one-quarter of the company.


Read more about how RebelMouse is transforming traditional startup culture in our diversity and inclusion report.

Our dedication to pursuing inclusion for all individuals, regardless of their gender identity, sexual preference, ethnicity, religion, age, or disability is our most treasured company pillar.

"Trans people have historically faced discrimination in the workspace. That's why, as a trans person, I knew RebelMouse was a special company when I started working here when my trans status was never seen as a distraction to me doing my job. With all of its emphasis on diversity and inclusion, I have been able to thrive under the leadership of Andrea Breanna, who is trans herself. I've never felt more welcomed and free to be myself than at RebelMouse and I'm proud to be a Rebel." —Rachel Williams, RebelMouse Account Manager

We work hard to form meaningful relationships beyond our platform. It's this passion that has formed what is now a diverse software company and creative agency that's bucking industry norms. Part of what makes for a healthy and inclusive work culture is happiness. One of our cultural mantras is to always prioritize happiness over anything — and this means being and making time for yourself.

We're also proud to power many LGBTQ+-friendly sites, including:

RebelMouse CEO: Reimagining Diversity “Starts in the Office”

Why women, minorities, and the LGBTQ+ community will restructure workplace norms

Entering a new decade means a new opportunity to change how we approach diversity. In a joint interview alongside Leanne Pittsford of Lesbians Who Tech, RebelMouse founder and CEO Andrea Breanna said that the only way to fight patriarchal dominance is to encourage and nurture more women, minorities, and members of the LGBTQ+ community in the workplace, particularly in tech.

Over half of RebelMouse's employees are women or identify as LGBTQ. Read our full diversity and inclusion report here.
