At Baker Tilly, we create an environment where every team member feels seen, heard, valued and connected. When we can bring our authentic selves to work each day, our contributions reflect our individual best, and our community is strong.
Throughout our firm, our approach to diversity, inclusion and belonging is embedded into everything we do.
Our three signature initiatives support our team members in creating a sense of belonging and foster conversations that effect change. GROW (Growth and Retention of Women) supports the attraction, development and advancement of women at Baker Tilly. SOAR (Supporting Opportunity, Advancement and Recognition) focuses on inclusion and career advancement for team members of color. NexGen helps discover and promote how four generations of team members can build rewarding relationships and advance our workplace, together.
We take local activation a step further with our team member networks, grassroots groups founded by our team members around common interests ranging from exercise and environmental activation to parenting and professional development.
Finally, our communities provide a space for team members to come together around shared identities. These include our Black, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) and "Latinx" communities.
"At Baker Tilly, belonging is one of our core values – emphasizing the importance of establishing a dynamic and innovative community within our firm. Our team members appreciate the depth of connection they’re able to make with their clients and colleagues by being a part of a growing community that is local, coast to coast and international."
"It is important that we leverage one another’s individuality to drive innovation within teams and build a unique value proposition both internally and externally."
“All my life I’ve seen the power of strong, supportive communities. Our AAPI Community at Baker Tilly gives us a place to connect and live out our value of belonging.”
“Sometimes, to seize opportunities, women needed to mentor and connect with other women. When I was a manager, my mom was diagnosed with MS. Experiencing the flexibility that our firm gave me while still progressing to partner is something that I want to share with others, and I do that through mentoring.”
“Our personal actions have consequences. We can use our sustainability network to educate each other and make an impact at Baker Tilly and beyond.”
“Through NexGen, we are amplifying and elevating the voices of our next generation of leaders, and connecting our workplace generations through conversation and community.”
“Our group, founded through grassroots connections, brings together all who want to share in or learn about the LatinX Community at Baker Tilly.”
