Our Story

OUR DAILY COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION 

DEI is in Our DNA

At PKF O’Connor Davies, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are more than just words, they’re the foundational elements that guide our daily actions and interactions. They’re the building blocks of our teams and our culture. They’re in our DNA.

Together, we continuously strive to build an inclusive culture that encourages, supports and celebrates the diverse voices of our employees. We know first-hand that different ideas, perspectives and backgrounds create a stronger and more creative work environment that delivers better results and greater value for clients. Because when people feel respected, and included, they are more focused, innovative and successful — in work and in life.

And that’s our real goal — to build a culture that transcends our workplace. To cultivate leaders not just in business but in our communities. To make a difference for our clients and for our world. We truly believe we have an opportunity to drive social change from the inside out.

You can see it and feel it in the places we work and the people we work with. Because when it comes to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, it’s not just what we say. It’s how we live. It’s who we are. DEI is truly in our DNA.

DEI Initiatives

To support an inclusive environment where employees feel empowered to share their experiences and ideas, we’ve fostered a variety of Employee Resource Groups that advance and celebrate diverse voices and perspectives.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council

Our internal Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council continually works to define and refine relevant goals, organizational frameworks, employee education and new resources and tools to realize a more diverse and inclusive workplace.

Women’s Initiative

The Women’s Initiative Network (WIN) at PKF O’Connor Davies was established in 2017. WIN remains committed to attracting, retaining and advancing talented women within our organization by maintaining a supportive culture that fosters professional growth and leadership opportunities.
