Lead with Pride
New England’s Premier Organization Championing LGBTQ+ Workplace Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Amplifying LGBTQ+ Voices to Drive Positive Change
Pride in Our Workplace provides all LGBTQ+ professionals with ways to amplify their voices and create thriving workplace cultures. By centering the LGBTQ+ perspective within our most important conversations, we help LGBTQ+ professionals and allied businesses to drive positive change.
PIOW Leadership Update
After helping found Pride in Our Workplace 16 years ago and serving a three-year term as President of our organization, John Basile shares his transition to PIOW’s new Advisory Board and announces our incoming leadership team.
Building Resilient Communities
The business case for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is stronger than ever. However, LGBTQ+ individuals are still under-represented at every level of management. We collaborate with community partners and allied businesses to provide accessible professional development tools, networking opportunities, and thought leadership forums. Together, we’re building towards a more equitable future.
Bringing Pride to Your Workplace
Pride in Our Workplace is dedicated to helping allied organizations foster thriving workplace cultures. As a member of our community, you have access to the latest best practices around LGBTQ+ inclusion and equity. As our partner, you have a team of DEI experts ready to provide guidance and a community of LGBTQ+ professionals for your employees to join.

What People are Saying
“PIOW has set up an environment that truly brings about a level of genuine sharing, collaboration and candor among professionals in the virtual/in-person spaces we share. I benefit greatly from discussing challenges or solutions with colleagues across industry-lines because it offers me new ways of thinking and the ability to consider our work in multiple contexts. The quality of the dialogue in PIOW spaces is always impactful, and I will continue to be an active participant as a result.”— Jamie Bergeron, EY
