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.
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.
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. “We’ve been working toward this day since we discovered the initiative in 2017 as part of the launch of our firm’s DEI program,” President John Hiltz said. “We’re thrilled to stand today with the many participating companies to publicly share our current and future program results.”
We offer options that support and empower a diverse workforce, including:
Leadership workshops for women
Flexible and remote work options
Local diversity organization membership reimbursement
We encourage career interest in STEM-related fields for youth via:
Active mentorship in local schools to encourage interest in STEM-centered careers from a young age
Internship program for high school students
Recruitment for future talent at universities with diverse student bodies
For a team to work well together, its members need to understand each other. As part of our DEI Action Plan created in 2018, we engaged Dr. Damon A. Williams to conduct ongoing, in-house educational seminars designed to help us have important conversations with each other about diversity and inclusion. One of the nation's recognized experts in strategic diversity leadership and a global thought leader, Dr. Williams has led several diversity training workshops for our team since 2018.
"From the highest levels of leadership, we all understand that the strongest teams embrace a broad perspective of ideas and opinions to achieve great things together, and that this requires team members with diverse backgrounds, experiences and knowledge. As a firm, we are committed to building those strong teams to best serve not only our client communities, but each other."
