Inclusion & Diversity

Onward to an Inclusive Culture

Our firm is committed to fostering an inclusive and diverse culture where everyone feels like they belong, which means taking meaningful action toward being an anti-racist firm.

Part of being anti-racist means working toward a more just and equitable society for all and supporting anti-discriminatory practices in our business landscape. Achieving this goal aligns with our firm values, not just because it makes solid business sense but because it’s the right thing to do.

Explore how we’re enhancing our culture, supporting our professionals, giving back to the communities where we live and work, and more.

Commitment to Develop, Support, and Retain Diverse Talent

People are what drives our firm’s success.

We’re focused on attracting individuals from historically underrepresented backgrounds to reflect who we are—while developing our diverse team of leaders with growth opportunities and lifetime learning.

We strive to retain talent that reflects our communities and clients with a supportive culture where our people feel respected and valued. Finally, we aim to advance the careers of all team members by promoting equity, access, and opportunity.

Our 5 Bold Commitments to accelerate our inclusion and diversity (I&D) progress through 2025 are:

  • Foster a greater sense of belonging
  • Have representation of diverse talent at all levels
  • Instill accountability and transparency in I&D efforts
  • Build equitable structures, processes, and practices
  • Invest in our communities

Grassroots to Governance

As the firm grows and we work toward our I&D goals, the grassroots work of our people led to development of a governance framework to hold us accountable for consistent progress.

In 2022, we instituted the framework for our I&D activities to help pressure-test our efforts and pivot when necessary. In 2023, we began to leverage this framework to refine our processes and enhance existing resources with better-defined roles and responsibilities that center I&D action into everything we do.

The learnings will direct our energy toward high-value activities that truly make an impact. Explore our most recent I&D Annual Report to see our performance to date. 

The framework also identified six teams to help deliver on our I&D strategy:

  • I&D Board. Leads the firm’s I&D strategy.
  • Regional I&D Leadership. Delivers regional I&D strategy in cooperation with the I&D board and regional business resource group (BRG) chapters.
  • Industry Group I&D Leadership. Implements growth opportunities in client work aligned with our I&D strategy, focusing on sponsorship and mentoring.
  • National BRG Leadership: Drives alignment between regional and firmwide BRG strategy.
  • Regional BRG Leadership. Drives regional BRG strategy, executing firmwide strategy at the regional level with a special focus on community building.
  • Inclusion and Social Responsibility Team. Consults firm leadership and the I&D Board on developing and executing the firm’s I&D and social responsibility strategies. 

Business Resource Groups

Our BRG leadership teams, comprised of hundreds of underrepresented professionals and allies across the firm, provide resources and host events that strengthen our inclusive culture and promote belonging.

Their work is the heart and soul of our I&D efforts, and their initiatives advance community, camaraderie, and connection firmwide.

Our growing list of BRGs includes:

  • Asian BRG
  • Black BRG
  • Disability BRG
  • Forum W BRG (Forum for Women)
  • LatinX BRG
  • Pride BRG
  • Veterans BRG
