Gannett Fleming kicked off Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and more (LGBTQ+) Pride Month in 2021 by launching our LGBTQ+ of Gannett Fleming employee resource group (ERG), and we’re proud of our own Heather Wilkie for her hand in making this happen.

Heather shared additional thoughts in our recent LGBTQ+ Pride Month video as part of our Lift Every Voice video series.
