At Withum, our intentional commitment to inclusion and diversity reinforces the foundation of the Firm’s value-driven culture. Since our inception we have lived our core values which put our people first and foremost in our drive for excellence. Today, more than ever, our clients are leaning in to see what initiatives we are taking to allow our team members to reach their fullest potential in an inclusive work environment. However, more importantly than being driven by clients’ questions, we believe at our core that a strong diversity and inclusion policy is the right thing by our people, clients and communities.
We’re living in a time where experiences profoundly impact mindset. Leading with inclusion and innovation, as part of Withum’s strategic Vision 2023, allows us to promote a sense of connection and belonging within the Firm. Creating a culture of inclusion where all of our team members can thrive lends itself to increased engagement across all levels of the Firm.
With inclusive, diverse teams, we can help our clients Be in a Position of StrengthSM, address their most pressing challenges and offer innovative solutions while fostering a workplace where our team members can thrive in their careers.
Withum’s Inclusion and Diversity strategic framework encompasses three key areas of focus:
To enhance inclusion at Withum, we recently launched our team member resources groups, known as Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). ERGs serve as an integral part of our I&D strategy and contribute significantly to our ability to achieve our collective I&D priorities. We’ve intentionally established seven ERGs representative of our underrepresented talent at the Firm. As the Firm grows, these ERGs will expand, developing a stronger, inclusive and diverse workplace.
I believe in leading by example and encourage every team member to be a steward of I&D at the Firm. Knowing who you are comes from knowing what you stand for. We stand for doing things The Withum Way. This unique philosophy and culture, built on trust and transparency, give us the strength to create immense opportunity for our clients, our team members and our communities.
We live the #WithumWay and embrace the power of #OneWithum.
