Booz Allen Chairman and CEO Ralph Shrader has recorded a video highlighting the importance of creating a diverse workplace where Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) employees feel welcomed, and calling on others in the workplace to become “straight allies.”
Booz Allen employees volunteered at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) event for kids grieving the death of a loved one who had performed military service for the United States. The event was part of the 19th annual TAPS National Military Survivor Seminar & Good Grief Camp—a five-day weekend event, which offers two camps for children, workshops for adults, and comfort for the families of the service men and women who have died in service to our nation.
For Booz Allen Principal Lucy Sorrentini, supporting Girls Inc. is personal. Growing up in the inner city, and being the youngest of six sisters, Lucy Sorrentini understands first-hand the benefit of how mentorship and single gender programs geared toward girls and young women— can go a long way.
