Clarkston's DE+I Goals

Developed in partnership with the Diversity Council and senior leaders in the firm, Clarkston’s DE+I goals set targeted objectives around the core areas of the business including leadership, recruiting, employee engagement, marketing, and more.

Our 10-Year DE+I Goals

All of the goals were created through a collaborative, iterative process involving firm leadership, stakeholders, and stewards at all levels of the firm. The goals have also been designed with flexibility to allow for future incorporation of other dimensions of diversity, equity, and inclusion, as applicable.
