At Segal McCambridge, diversity and inclusion are critically important. We are committed to a diversified and inclusive workplace that provides opportunities to all our employees regardless of race, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, religion or national origin. In order to maintain a strong organization and effectively represent the interests of our clients, who also come from various cultures, backgrounds, lifestyles and belief systems, we endeavor to hire, develop, retain and promote the talent reflecting those differences.
Our diversity and inclusion efforts are therefore focused on:
- Embracing all cultures, ethnicities, genders and sexual orientations.
- Creating a work environment that fosters inclusivity, growth and advancement.
- Contributing to the diverse communities in which we live and work.
- Shepherding our diversity and inclusion objectives, and progress toward achieving them, through the firm’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee.
