Integrating Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging into Everything We Do

Advancing a culture of belonging with employees, clients and communities starts with strategy, and continues with learning, acting, refining and moving forward with a belief that we are never done.

We aim to cultivate enterprise-wide systems and cultures of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging that permeate every aspect of the business and empower all stakeholders — both internally and externally — to succeed.


Diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging are essential to everything we do, from empowering employees to serving clients, engaging vendors to impacting communities. Simply put, it's good for people and it's good for business.

DEIB Defined

It’s easy to say that diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging are important to an organization. But what do these words really mean?


Diversity is ...

about the numbers, differences and representation – hiring more people with various backgrounds (including race, ethnicity, gender and gender identity, military status, sexual identity and capability), expanding our client base, focusing on emerging and underrepresented markets.


Equity is ...

about treating each person fairly and impartially. It involves ensuring all have equal opportunity to grow and progress within an organization, and actively correcting policies and procedures that create and/or perpetuate inequities.


Inclusion is ...

about valuing and celebrating differences, understanding that we will be a better workforce and service provider because of our differences.


Belonging is ...

about creating an environment where all employees and stakeholders are empowered to be their authentic selves, use their voice and have a seat at the table to drive growth and progress.
