William Blair Participates in Chicago’s Proud to Run Event

William Blair’s Pride Alliance recently celebrated its first anniversary by participating in Chicago’s Proud to Run. The event took place on the Chicago lakefront and raised $60,000 for youth and health groups including the Illinois Safe Schools Alliance, University of Chicago’s Care 2 Prevent, Test Positive Aware Network, and Pediatric AIDS Chicago Prevention Initiative.

William Blair colleagues either walked or ran the 5K and 10K and others were hosts of the event which brought out 2,000 racers, 200 volunteers and numerous community partners, families, and friends. William Blair Pride Alliance was formed to create a workplace environment that was inclusive for LGBTQ employees while supporting corporate policies that supported diversity.
