Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion 

 

Creating and nurturing a progressive force of diversity, equity, and inclusion within our organization and our industry.

We are committed to and accountable for creating and nurturing a progressive force of diversity, equity, and inclusion within our organization and our industry. The values we hold and demonstrate affect how we interact with the clients we serve, the participants that depend upon us, and in the communities where we live and work. We believe that to help our clients create and maintain the best possible retirement plan for their participants, we as an organization must recognize, understand, support, and leverage the differences that make each of us unique and valuable. By seeking diverse perspectives and experiences that come from gender, race, religion, age, sexual orientation, culture, socioeconomic background, and experience, we are better able to understand the unique perspectives and needs that will empower our clients to make smart investment decisions surrounding their retirement plans.

At Multnomah Group:

  • We acknowledge that we are part of an industry where women and people of color are under-represented. We are committed to driving change in our industry. By regularly assessing our hiring practices and performance review procedures and processes to attract, retain, and develop talented team members from diverse backgrounds, we will hold ourselves accountable for our commitment to drive change within our company and our industry.
  • We will cultivate cultural competencies through continued work and education of self-awareness, developing social skills and behaviors around diversity, and gaining the ability to advocate for others.
  • We will recognize and respect diversity through our words and actions in all contexts.
  • We will foster and maintain a safe environment of respect and inclusion for our team and clients, ensuring everyone is being heard.
