TURM supports the racial, cultural and ethnic diversity of Evercore employees and advocates and raises social awareness to build a more vibrant, inclusive community. TURM helps to attract, develop and retain talented individuals from traditionally underrepresented groups. We welcome all Evercore employees, whether members of traditionally underrepresented groups or majority allies, to join us in empowering change and manifesting Evercore’s Core Value of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

We seek to attract, develop and support LGBTQ+ leaders and create forums for active engagement and partnership between LGBTQ+ colleagues and allies. We believe that our clients are best served when our employees can be their true, authentic selves, and we are committed to making Evercore the employer of choice for top LGBTQ+ talent in our industry.

This is a network dedicated to ensuring that veterans are positioned to succeed as members of the Evercore team and that the organization fully benefits from the unique experiences and skills of veterans.

We support veterans through the following initiatives:

At Evercore, we are focused on driving a unified and global approach to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in alignment with our core values. The standards of excellence that we demand from all our employees can only be achieved in a diverse environment that promotes a culture of inclusion and allows everyone to give their absolute best every day. Our investment in people makes our firm stronger and contributions to our clients and communities more impactful.
