Diversity and Inclusion Insights
A CULTURE OF INCLUSION
OUR CULTURE IS OUR STRONGEST ASSET
I’m very proud of Clarkston’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. Diversity has been one of our core values since the inception of our company and we recognize the impact this commitment has had on our firm’s success. Our diversity initiatives are designed to embrace people from all backgrounds to help them grow their careers at Clarkston, to build a sustainable firm, and bring those perspectives to provide brilliant service to our clients.
For me, diversity means that we truly value each other’s perspective, one that is based on our varied personal life experiences. Our ability to harness our collective experiences is what allows us to differentiate from other organizations. I believe achieving diversity is a lifelong endeavor and one that we all must embrace and proactively act on. I am proud to work for an organization that espouses a culture of diversity and one that makes diversity a priority in the way we deal with our clients and our stewards.
Clarkston makes a concerted effort to weave our core value of diversity into the fabric of our culture. Our outlook on diversity and inclusion is not limited to external demographics, but the diversity of perspective, skill, experience, and culture as well. This means ensuring that each of our stewards have access to the same opportunities to develop and grow their careers, and that their individualism is not only welcome but valued.
Diversity is not simply a hiring strategy. It is creating a culture that embraces perspectives from differing cultures, backgrounds, and ethnic groups. By engaging diversity on a continual basis, Clarkston Consulting is able to view problems from different points of views ensures a ‘diversity of thought’ that allows us to consider ideas that might otherwise have not been thought of, learn from one another and create an organization that is greater than the sum of our parts.
Clarkston Consulting is incredibly fortunate to have a remarkable community of people whose diverse backgrounds, ideas, and points of view are critical to our success. We have created a strong environment that encourages broad, non-insular thinking, and group strength to solve our clients most important business problems. This inclusive environment emboldens our steward’s enrichment, growth and a broader perspective on issues that face our people and our clients. Our culture also helps our clients discover innovative business solutions from a wide perspective of views. Our company is committed to growing together with our clients and stewards. Inclusion and diversity don’t just make great business sense, they are simply the right thing to do.
