Ferguson Partners Diversity Pledge
Making a commitment to diversity and inclusion is a terrific first step, but what happens after the pledges and promises are made? Having diverse representation in the workforce is absolutely critical, but the missing, often neglected link is creating a culture where all employees have a true sense of belonging. A culture of inclusion that provides equal opportunity in hiring, promotions, and pay, is a big step toward achieving true diverse representation in the organization.
At Ferguson Partners, we recognize that we must practice what we preach. While we are industry leaders at addressing diversity initiatives through our recruiting activities across both executives and Boards with an established, second-to-none track record, we know we can do more within our own firm.
To that end, we are committed to increasing diversity within Ferguson Partners by recruiting talented individuals from all races, religions, genders, sexual orientations, and all other traditionally under-represented groups, creating an environment where team members from all cultures, identities, backgrounds, and experiences can achieve and exceed their full potential.
We have formed a Diversity Committee that will be evaluating charitable partnerships with local not-for-profits committed to improving the lives of minorities. We have also become a Diversity Partner to The Real Estate Executive Organization (REEC), working together to foster improving diverse representation on Boards of Directors and leadership teams.
