Each year during the month of October, Legg Mason employees spread awareness by participating in two global initiatives – Wear it Pink and Spirit Day.

Employees in our Maryland, New York, Connecticut and London offices are wearing pink today, October 23rd for Breast Cancer Now’s “Wear it Pink” initiative. Furthermore, the Firm will make contributions to Breast Cancer Now, as well as Pushing Pink Elephants, a Baltimore based organization striving to “push beyond” cancer awareness to educate and provide the community with a broader understanding of breast and ovarian health.

Additionally, LEAD (LGBTQ Employees & Allies for Diversity), one of seven Legg Mason Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), sponsored Spirit Day on October 15th. Employees took part by wearing purple to honor the stance against bullying and supporting the LGBT community. Hundreds of dollars were raised to benefit GLAAD for LGBT Youth Outreach efforts.
