Our Commitment to Advancing Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

Our DEI Strategy & Action Plan

We're committed to pursuing four primary goals, backed by a clear action plan. As part of our commitment to being transparent about our goals and progress, we will share updates regularly along this journey.

Lead By Example

We will be transparent and model inclusion. This includes hiring a new chief diversity, equity, and inclusion officer to drive this work and standing up a DEI Executive Council to serve as the new governing body for the firm’s DEI mission. The DEI Executive Council will support the DEI strategy to ensure transparency with mission evolution and progress, and drive accountability at all levels.

Inspire Belonging

We will strive to be a safe space where people feel seen, heard, valued, and cared for across the firm. We’re offering increased opportunities for employees to learn from and engage with each other.

Use Our Voice

We will be a force for advancing equity and resilience by identifying the biggest challenges and deploying our world-class capabilities to solve them. As we continue our philanthropic and pro bono relationships, we’ll deepen our commitment to using these tools in support of organizations that build pathways to equity.
