KNF&T Attends Pride In Our Workplace Breakfast Series

KNF&T is committed to building a diverse and inclusive workforce and we love attending events with like-minded individuals. On Thursday, we had the pleasure of attending a Pride In Our Workplace (PIOW) breakfast series hosted by Locke Lord. PIOW is a MA nonprofit comprised of LGBTQ professionals and allies from industry-leading companies in New England. It’s a forum to share diversity and inclusion best practices, promote stronger networks, and further develop skills and capabilities.

Needless to say, the discussion was captivating as the panel went over issues like the gender pay gap, social justice, equality, and the various legislature that can have an impact. We’re excited to continue discussions like this and can’t wait for the next event.
