On October 8 our Sain family celebrated the Spirit of Lauren Award, an annual award given in memory of Lauren Nickles, our friend and co-worker.

As Sain Associates’ founder, Hack Sain, used to say in a very blunt manner, “Since half the brain power in the world is inside women’s heads, you’d be stupid not to encourage the development of women in the workplace.” Our firm’s history is rooted in a paradigm of valuing the contributions of women, which continues very prominently today under the leadership of Jim Meads.
