Tim Cook Welcomes Encircle’s ‘Life-Saving’ Work

Mr. Cook was joined by former NBA star Dwyane Wade, Utah Jazz owner Ryan Smith, Governor Spencer J. Cox and his wife, Abby, on the visit. Encircle CEO and founder Stephenie Larsen was also there. The Apple CEO described the organization’s work as “life-saving” in a tweet.

Mr. Cook has become increasingly public in his support for the rights of LGBTQ+ people. He has also received various awards for his work in this area.

Meeting Developers in Utah

As well as supporting the LGBTQ+ center, Mr. Cook met with developers and Apple staff in Utah. He visited the company’s retail outlet at City Creek Center:

He also met with a variety of developers in the state. This included Red Game which makes Apple Arcade game Lego Brawls, and Ancestry.

Mr. Cook has been on something of a tour in recent weeks, perhaps as a way of marking his 10 years as Apple CEO. He conducted a similar visit in New York not long after the release of the iPhone 13.
