Diversity & Inclusion


The Four Pillars

“It's not enough to merely appreciate and embrace differences. We also need to uphold equitable values, even when it’s the less familiar path…especially when it’s the less familiar path. As business leaders, we must commit to promoting professional growth with ample opportunity for all, and particularly for those who have not benefited from the same systemic supports many of us have enjoyed throughout our careers.”

– Ross Dowd, co-CEO

Inclusiveness in practice

Over the years, our team has grown and evolved, and today there are nearly 30 different cultures represented across our firm. Inclusivity and collaboration are paramount to our success, as is transparency in discussing where we can do better. We know that diversity across our team leads us to stronger dialogue and advantages in innovating as a business, and we are committed to a continued focus on opening more doors as we look to the future.
