Ron Hicks listed among City & State PA Pride Power 100

Porter Wright is proud to announce that partner Ron Hicks is honored among City & State PA’s Pride Power 100. The listing kicks of Pride Month 2022 by recognizing those throughout Pennsylvania’s LGBTQ+ community who have broken barriers and changed the narrative by fighting for equality, either directly through their work or by simply being out and visible in the workplace. Those on the Pride Power 100 list are making strides to create safe spaces and remove limits for current and future generations.

Ron is listed near the top of the list and honored for his work helping to launch Porter Wright’s LGBTQ+ Business Practice Group in June 2021. City & State also highlights Ron as the founding member and president of the Three Rivers Business Alliance, which serves as Pittsburgh’s LGBTQIA+ Chamber of Commerce. Additionally, Ron is featured for leading the way in recent LGBTQ procurement inclusion legislation.

Being an out and proud member of the Pittsburgh LGBTQ+ community, Ron serves as co-chair of the firm's LGBTQ+ Business Practice Group. In this role, he represents LGBTQ+ business owners and clients across industries, often serving as outside general counsel. Regardless of location, industry, stage of business or corporate structure, Porter Wright’s LGBTQ+ Business group works with LGBTQ+ business owners to enable a path that avoids challenges, minimizes risk, and leverages opportunity.

Earlier in 2022, Ron was named to City & State’s Pittsburgh Power 100. In 2021, he was honored among its Top Fifty Over 50 listing.
