The Voices of SoulCycle: Our new forum for conversation & meaningful change.

We’re proud to introduce The Voices of SoulCycle: Our new series of panel discussions co-curated & led by our Queer & BIPOC instructors.

Each discussion will shine a light on issues that are important to our community. Through our instructors personal perspectives and experiences, and guest experts' insights, expect each conversation to be uncomfortable, enlightening, sometimes heartbreaking, but always empowering, and—most importantly—a call to action.

In order to maintain a safe space, we ask that all participants review & follow our Virtual Code of Conduct.

Join us, and let’s create meaningful change together.

Stay tuned for upcoming discussions.

Take Action 

How to make an impact with your profession:

Research how you can apply your skills to volunteer work. VolunteerMatch is a great place to start searching for opportunities, or you can begin a new initiative in your community.

Find ways to use your role to influence hiring practices and/or representation (i.e. recruiting/casting more diverse talent).

Become a mentor with organizations like Women Who Create.

How to be an ally in your workforce:

Urge your company to expand and amplify their DEI policies & practices. Research LGBTQ+ employee resources, like these from the Human Rights Campaign.

Urge your company to diversify their hiring policies & practices. A good place to begin is with #HireBlack—a movement started to help 10,000 Black womxn get trained, hired, and promoted.

Join or organize internal DEI groups or meetings.

Talk to your BIPOC & Queer coworkers. What do they feel is missing from the workplace? How can you help advocate for them?
