The world in which we live and work is full of complexities and tensions that can have a monumental impact on our communities. Considering how much time our employees spend in their places of work, we must be able to not only address those topics that can cause tensions and complexities, but to do so with openness and compassion.
Research shows that diversity in the workplace environment increases creativity and innovation, promotes higher quality decisions, and enhances economic growth. Because of these factors, among others, Carr, Riggs & Ingram is committed to fostering an inclusive and diverse place for all employees to work in and engage.
When our managing partner and chairman, Bill Carr, signed the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™ pledge, he made a public commitment to building a productive, diverse, and inclusive workplace. The CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™ is the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance inclusion and diversity within the workplace. Forged by the notion that addressing diversity and inclusion is not a competitive issue, but a societal one, recognizing this commitment starts at the executive level. We are excited that CRI is now a part of more than 50 other leading accounting firms in the nation, and more than 900 of the world’s leading companies and business organizations, who are set on leveraging their voices to advancing inclusion and diversity in today’s workplace.
We are proud of the people that represent our firm and the culture that our people perpetuate. Together we are committed to working to address issues, facilitate uncomfortable conversations, and learn from one another, all with the sole purpose of driving meaningful change.
