Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging
OUR DIFFERENCES MAKE US STRONGER AS A COMPANY
We each have a unique perspective that shapes how we interact with our clients, our communities, and each other. These varying perspectives hold tremendous value, and all deserve to be heard.
Mead & Hunt is committed to increasing diversity not only in our firm, but also our industry as a whole. Our Employee Resource Group (ERG) was created to support diversity, inclusion, and belonging (DI&B) initiatives. We know that increased focus on DI&B is vital to our continued success. Our communities are not homogenous—our community builders shouldn’t be either.
EMPLOYEE RESOURCE GROUP
The ERG is comprised of several special interest groups to support the unique perspectives of our diverse company. New groups can be added as needed. Currently the groups include:
Disabilities Interest Group
This group works to raise awareness, remove stigmas, and educate on issues associated with disabilities – something that will touch everyone in some way during their lifetime.
Ethnic Minorities Interest Group
This group promotes the support, advocacy, and recruitment of employees in ethnic minority groups. They work to provide equal opportunities, suitable representation, professional growth, and inclusion of the unique perspectives of ethnic minority employees to enhance equity for all.
LGBTQIA+ Interest Group
This team’s mission is to support, educate, and promote an inclusive and safe space for everyone to be their true selves. They help create an inclusive work environment by continuing to normalize discussions, provide company-wide allyship, and educate about the struggles and successes faced by the LGBTQIA+ community, both personally and professionally.
Veterans-Military Interest Group
The group builds camaraderie and provides education, support, and inclusion by sharing military values, recognizing visible and invisible disabilities, increasing our recruitment reach, and providing a safe place for the Mead & Hunt family to have discussions with and about those that are serving or have served.
Women’s Interest Group
This team’s mission is to recruit, support, and retain women of all ages and stages of life throughout their experience at Mead & Hunt through early outreach, education, open communication, and creating a sense of belonging. They are committed to empowering and encouraging women, providing a network to promote equity in the workplace.
