Our firm strives to take the next step in creating an environment where everyone feels safe and valued.
Public Knowledge® (PK) continuously focuses on diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB). For our firm, it is not a sales pitch or something we acknowledge when it is convenient. Inclusion is one of our core values, and there are always more opportunities to create an open, diverse, and inclusive space where everyone is celebrated.
Our Approach to DEIB
We have a group of leaders who guide our firm and facilitate conversations regarding the direction of our yearly DEIB initiatives. These conversations are integrated into our messaging and ensure our people feel safe, included, and heard.
A New Chapter
Management consultant Sara Melendez is the new facilitator and is ready to take on this new position.
“My lived experience has ignited my passion for the DEIB initiative personally. When PK took on this initiative, not only did it make me feel more comfortable to be my true self in the workplace, but it also made me feel more valued. I am excited to take on this role to assist in continuing this work to make future and current employees feel comfortable and valued as I did.”Sara Melendez, Management Consultant
Cultivating an Inclusive Environment for All
Our strength lies in our diverse teams, which come with new perspectives. This is impactful not only for our team but our clients.
“I would describe PK’s DEIB focus as an opportunity to foster personal and professional growth for all PK employees, which will, in turn, allow us to provide a better product to the clients we serve.”Sara Melendez, Management Consultant
Moving Forward as a Firm
As Sara continues to move PK forward in this work, we are excited to see the direction it takes under her leadership.
“There is a lot of work to be done. The work can be uncomfortable and is always evolving, but if we continue to move forward, we will be a better firm and closer as a PK family.”Sara Melendez, Management Consultant
