Equality@Work Awards honors supportive workplaces

On June 16, 2010, the Empire State Pride Agenda held its seventh annual Equality@Work Awards, where we honored companies and individuals who are working to create an inclusive work environment that respects, welcomes and supports LGBT professionals and empowers them to reach their potential. This year, we were honored to recognize JPMorgan Chase, KPMG and Lisa Linsky of McDermott Will & Emery.

Garrett, New York Office Managing Partner, accepting the award on behalf of KPMG; and Ross Levi, Pride Agenda Executive Director.
