When we talk about diversity, we are describing a wide range of differences and similarities. In its full breadth, diversity encompasses 24 dimensions including race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, generation and physical ability. Some are visible, some are not.
Inclusion leverages the power of our differences to achieve our goals. Diverse teams are innovative. Each member has a different background and point of view, so they bring a broad range of ideas to the table. When we value every one as unique perspective, we see high performance and better results.
That is why Heights cultivates a diverse organization. It as imperative to attract, retain and develop diverse professionals to spur innovation, drive growth and sustain competitive advantage in the marketplace. Today, our new hires are increasingly diverse and our partnership includes more women and minorities than ever before. Diversity is a complex subject. We realize there are no easy answers and we still have work to do. We are on a journey and our culture continues to evolve and grow. Our firm has extraordinary teams that benefit from dynamic diversity. Now it as about sustaining a work environment where everyone has an opportunity to grow and succeed.
We encourage diversity through initiatives that make Heights an even more inclusive place, where people from all backgrounds can flourish. We focus on three main areas:
- Early success: Expanding our pipeline for diverse employees and helping them get a strong start.
- Development and advancement: Supporting the success of our professionals and promoting diverse leadership.
- Inclusion: Enhancing cultural dexterity for all our people.
