We recognize the importance of mental health and have chosen to sponsor the Jordan Porco Foundation, which will be the beneficiary of an annual donation. During Mental Health Awareness Month, we partnered with the Jordan Porco Foundation (JPF) on a webinar that focused on how to have tough conversations about mental health and emotional well-being.
The partnership started with an introduction from April Brackett (VP, Industry Marketing) to Marisa Giarnella-Porco (Founder, President and CEO of JPF) and the Include@GB Steering Committee, our Diversity and Inclusion board at Gallagher Bassett.
April shared, “I was motivated to make the introduction because I saw an opportunity for my GB colleagues to learn from the work Marisa and her team at the Foundation are doing to end the stigma around mental health and teaching others how to talk about it and ask for help.”
Marisa Giarnella-Porco said, “We are excited to partner with Gallagher Bassett and together teach others how to have difficult conversations with friends, family members and colleagues about mental health.”
Gallagher Bassett made a donation this year and will continue to support the Jordan Porco Foundation on an annual basis.
