Inclusion and diversity (I&D) is central to our people-first, values-driven culture. By putting our people first, we create a foundation to trust and transparency that allows everyone to be heard, feel valued and enhance our clients’ experiences at the Firm. This starts with fostering a sense of community, through the firm and through our Team Member Resource Groups, by embracing the intersections of our team member’s identities and the diverse perspectives they bring to work every day.

Our ability to engage in open and candid conversations across difference allows our people to be empowered by inclusion. This collaboration sparks curiosity, builds trust and creates a more fulfilling work environment.

Our workforce priorities focus on intentional efforts to recruit, retain and advance underrepresented talent at all levels.

Our Workplace

Our workplace priorities focus on fostering a culture of inclusion where our team members feel empowered to be their authentic selves.

Our Marketplace and Community

Our marketplace and Community priorities are driven by our corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative to actively support the communities we serve.

Team Member Resource Groups

To truly grow inclusion at Withum, our team member resource groups (TMRGs), typically referred to as employee resources groups, serve as an integral part of our I&D strategy. Our TMRGs represent team members who identify as people of color (Asian, Latinx, Black), a member of the LGBTQ+ community, a person with a disability, a veteran or a woman. They exist to enrich the brand, culture and client experience by driving cultural awareness, competency and authentic engagement across our workplace.
