We believe our purpose is to invest in people and places to build enduring relationships. Diversity, Equality and Inclusion are core to this purpose and an integral part of our values and culture.
We are committed to building a diverse, equal and inclusive culture that encourages, supports, and celebrates the distinct voices of our people. We invite our people to bring their whole self to work, be inspired to form lasting relationships and to do their best each day, because we are all different yet equal.
We educate ourselves so that we can bring the best version of us to our colleagues and other stakeholders. We are committed to action by holding uncomfortable conversations and offering financial support to nonprofits advocating and advancing racial justice. We empathize with those impacted by prejudice and recognize our responsibility to support initiatives promoting a corporate culture and society that strives for equal opportunity for all. We will continue to foster inclusion within our teams and offer allyship to all who share this vision.
