At Protiviti, as part of our ongoing commitment to our people, we have a number of Employee Network Groups that support our Diversity & Inclusion initiative. The proPRIDE is a national group with ~150 members that began in 2013, whose mission statement includes the below:

  • Increase visibility and awareness of LGBTQ employees at Protiviti
  • Foster a better understanding among Protiviti employees of the unique issues the LGBTQ community faces in the workplace
  • Provide equal employment and advancement opportunity to all, regardless of sexual orientation
  • Enhance recruitment efforts of LGBTQ talent
  • Promote and sustain an inclusive environment wherein every employee is treated with respect and dignity, free from discrimination and prejudice


ProPride Co-Executive Champions, Philip & Steven, had a chance to comment on the award received.


Philip – “At Protiviti we continue to strive to create a diverse and inclusive company culture. We celebrate our differences and aim to depict the full breadth of the human experience, inside the walls of our offices, with our clients, and in our local communities. Embracing the diverse perspectives of our people and clients is what defines our culture and approach to solving business challenges. I’m elated that for the second year in a row Protiviti’s commitment to supporting the LGBTQIA+ community is recognized and honored.”


Steven – “I’m proud to say that among Protiviti’s core values is diversity and inclusivity. Our people make a difference every day in the lives of their colleagues, clients and communities. We expect our people to bring their experiences and backgrounds into the conversation to solve problems, innovate and bring insights into the market and for our clients, all while becoming better professionals themselves. And we recognize that being authentic ourselves, respectful of the diversity of thought and opinion, and truly collaborative is the way we will be successful and impactful.”

Diversity and Inclusion Leader and Executive Vice President, Susan, also chimed in on this honor.


Susan – “This is a remarkable achievement for Protiviti’s global diversity and inclusion initiative. I am thrilled to see the proPride Employee Network Group working in such great collaboration with our parent company. This success reinforces our collective goal of making our organization a great place to work for all.”

We are extremely proud of this honor and to have received a perfect score from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation and look forward to continuing to build a work environment that is a comfortable workplace for all.
