What we do

Proud works with firm leaders and human resources to develop policies and programs to help create and support an environment that allows professionals to be themselves.  Kearney has a firm-wide non-discrimination policy based on sexual orientation and gender identity, and health care benefits are offered to the spouses, domestic partners, and families of LGBTQIA+ employees. Proud's activities are focused on membership, people development, and community and business development. These activities help enrich our current and future members and ensure that we positively impact the world.
