Diversity & Inclusion

Our Commitment

We strive to have a workplace that reflects the diversity of the communities we serve and that fosters a sense of belonging. 

We promote diversity and inclusion through our culture, practices and community partnerships. We endeavour to empower and to create change through education, resources and activities that recognize and celebrate our diversity. We frequently offer complimentary educational programs and resources to our clients, and we regularly engage our firm members with educational programs and activities to enhance inclusion. In the recruitment, retention and advancement of our people, we strive to eliminate barriers and to ensure equality of opportunity for every member of our firm.

We call our firm’s commitment to diversity and inclusion “ABDI.”

Below you will find a number of our firm’s complimentary resources, examples of internal initiatives that illustrate our workplace culture and a list of community partners who support our firm’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Mental Health in the Workplace

Our mental health initiative focuses on building awareness and understanding, reducing stigma and fostering a safe and supportive work environment. In partnership with recognized mental health advocates and experts, we regularly offer educational programs that address mental health and wellness. We also facilitate educational programs led by colleagues from within the firm (or from the community at large) with first-hand experience dealing with mental health issues.
