Odgers Berndtson is committed to creating an inclusive and diverse workplace. We are dedicated to creating a work environment that is safe and respectful of all individuals.
We believe that diversity of perspectives is essential for our success and that our people must feel accepted, respected, and valued in order to bring their best to our clients. To that end, we are taking purposeful steps to create and maintain a culture of inclusion and belonging.
We have and will always stand with and support the inclusion of our colleagues, candidates, and clients and are committed to improving the level of diversity in all its forms within Odgers Berndtson.
To this end, we launched Unlimited – a program of initiatives that embody our philosophy and our commitments to inclusion and diversity.
Our commitment to diversity and inclusion has resulted in a number of initiatives implemented to ensure diversity is present at all levels of our organization.
This includes our Allies program, which was created to ensure our unique ‘Unlimited’ culture is upheld and resonates across our geographic locations. Allies are self-nominated individuals who believe all colleagues should experience equality, fairness, and dignity at work and ensure we actively improve in all areas of inclusion, diversity, equity, and access. These groups are (though not limited to) Age, Race, Ethnicity, Gender, Disabilities, Mental Health, Menopause, Social Mobility, LGBTQ+, and Neurodiversity.
We have implemented a recruitment process that is designed to ensure equal opportunity for all qualified candidates and have also increased our efforts to retain and promote diverse talent in leadership roles.
