Achieving Baker Tilly’s vision relies on the cultivation of a diverse, engaging and inclusive environment in which exceptional people thrive. That is one of our top priorities. Our firm has established a national diversity and inclusion committee, chaired by our CEO Alan Whitman, that is committed to drive results and communicate progress in embedding diversity and inclusion into our culture – and in everything we do. Great things are happening at Baker Tilly. We are making our future today.

Advancement of women

The Baker Tilly GROW program (Growth and Retention of Women) is another way we focus on our people. GROW is specifically designed to enhance the recruitment, retention, development, and advancement of women by providing internal and external opportunities to network, share information, acquire skills and form rewarding professional relationships.

GROW originates from three primary strategies to support the firm’s vision:

  • Increase the number of women in firm leadership and partner positions
  • Increase the retention of women at all levels of the firm
  • Create an environment without gender boundaries


Supporting Opportunity, Advancement and Recognition for all (SOAR) encourages and supports the evolution of a diverse, inclusive workforce with opportunity for all team members to maximize their potential, create value and deliver on our promise of Exceptional Client Service with focuses on race and ethnicity and LGBT groups.

SOAR originates from three primary strategies to positively impact:
