Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Cultivating an Inclusive Environment
Evercore is focused on cultivating an inclusive environment by building community and connectivity for our diverse professionals and creating forums to have courageous conversations around DE&I topics.
Our Diversity Networks are integral to communications, education and community outreach. They are active in cultivating formal opportunities for allyship, participating in the firm’s recruiting efforts, building programs around cultural awareness and creating professional development opportunities for their respective constituencies. They also provide support and help members and allies connect and build relationships with each other. All employees are encouraged to join diversity networks as members or allies.
Evercore hosts programs and workshops aimed at furthering the goal of equipping our professionals with the ability to engage and discuss a broad range of topics more effectively. We have hosted firmwide workshops on Inclusive Hiring and Allyship and have an ongoing action-oriented education series for our senior leaders. Our diversity networks have also hosted educational programming with content and notable guest speakers to celebrate cultures, promote accomplishments and raise awareness of DE&I issues.
