We also have WIN, a professional women’s group that champions inclusion and equality for all employees, especially women. We’re also in the midst of launching an LGBTQ+ affinity group. We also provide our knowledge search service at no or low cost to select partners in the social impact space. We also sponsor Charity House, an affinity group which supports non-profits breaking educational and professional barriers. Two of our most recent Charity House partners are iMentor and Big Brothers Big Sisters.
