  • June 2022: GW&K Celebrates Pride

    GW&K is proud to embrace the diversity of our employees, clients, and communities. We celebrated Pride this year by offering opportunities to learn, connect, and support local LGBTQ nonprofits and producers, like the Boston Alliance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Youth (BAGLY) and the Dorchester Brewing Company. Members of GW&K’s LGBTQ Alliance were honored to join BAGLY’s Youth Pride for a day filled with advocacy, celebration, and resource sharing designed by and for LGBTQ+ youth. GW&K hosted a panel from BAGLY for an enlightening session focused on navigating being transgender in school, being a queer & transgender person of color, transgender youth health & wellness, and being a youth leader at BAGLY.
