The events of the past several years have caused us to pause and reflect on our firm’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our workplace is diverse, and we believe our environment is inclusive. We are committed to providing a work environment that embraces and respects each individual regardless of race, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, or disability. Is this enough? No. It is not.
HCVT’s Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion initiative develops goals and specific action plans that support social and racial justice internally and externally. Our current focus areas are recruiting and training, including firm-wide programs on implicit bias, external and internal communications, community outreach and impact, and developing every team member. We are a work in progress and committed to making strides. Vicken Haleblian, our CEO & managing partner, has signed the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion Pledge. He joins over 1,200 CEOs across the nation that have pledged their support, collective voices, and actions to promote a more diverse and inclusive workplace where access to opportunities is available to all. As a firm and as members of our communities, we are listening. We are learning. We are committed to being part of the way forward.
