A diverse workforce of highly talented people.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Our pledge is to continuously develop impactful initiatives that enhance our corporate culture and the world around us.

At OHM Advisors, we are committed to attracting, retaining, and promoting a diverse workforce of highly talented people, enriching both our internal culture and our collaborative professional efforts for our clients, and reflecting the diversity of the client communities we serve.

Diversity Drives Innovation

Putting people first drives our entire mission of Advancing Communities. We want all people to belong, thrive and innovate at OHM Advisors, so we’ve created a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Action Plan as a framework for cultivating a culture that supports, empowers and respects diverse talent. We also feel it’s our corporate responsibility to set an example for our industry and encourage more diversity in the overall workforce, outside of our walls, for the good of our profession and the communities we serve.

Our Public Pledge

Supporting Inclusive Workplaces

OHM Advisors joined in the signing of the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™ pledge—the world’s largest CEO-driven initiative to advance diversity and inclusion within the workplace. The firm has been working toward this day since 2017 as part of the launch of our firm’s DEI program. We’re thrilled to stand today with the many participating companies to publicly share our current and future program results.
