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.
