When we say we put people first, this includes our commitment to creating an equitable work environment where all feel welcome.
Woodard & Curran believes that diverse teams working together in an equitable, inclusive culture provides the right environment for our employees to thrive, our clients to benefit, and our business to prosper over the long run. Our success is tied to a culture that embraces our differences and creates an environment where everyone can bring their whole, authentic selves to work. When our people are supported to reach their full potential, we provide our clients with the most innovative, sound, and cost-effective solutions.
Our eight-member Equity Committee, which includes our DEI Manager, spearheads Woodard & Curran’s DEI efforts. The Committee’s strategy is always evolving; as the world becomes more culturally fluent, we must have room to adjust. However, the following goals remain foundational for the entire company:
It is my goal to identify opportunities for Woodard & Curran to not only be more diverse and inclusive, but also a more equitable workplace, so that for many who have sought belonging for as long as I have, maybe they can find it here.
Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) celebrate our differences and promote a culture of inclusion, the central tenet of our DEI strategy.
The following employee-led resource groups keep our DEI efforts on the right track, provide a forum for employees to share their views and experiences, facilitate discussions, and build connections.
Members of each ERG play an integral role in creating an inclusive climate, as well as informing company policies and process that directly impact DEI within the firm. These voluntary groups cultivate connection between employees across the company and facilitate critical discussions regarding important topics that affect our employees.
