DHG Celebrates Inclusion & Diversity Across its Footprint
In celebration of both Black History Month and Women’s History Month, DHG is launching a two-month campaign to promote and recognize inclusion and diversity across the firm. Throughout February and March, DHG will shine a light on its people, their stories and the unique Life at DHG culture which focuses on people, careers and flexibility.
“DHG’s Inclusion & Diversity Council aims for our professionals to thrive in our differences, celebrate our people in their unique contributions, and value our diverse backgrounds, beliefs and ideas. In the accounting industry or any industry, innovation stems from the bright ideas of a diverse workforce,” says Leslie Roberts, CPA, DHG Partner & Women Forward Advocate in Hampton Roads
One of the highlights of the campaign is the release of DHG’s first inclusion and diversity focused publication (view publication). This print and digital magazine is a compilation of stories from the firm’s Life at DHG blog celebrating diversity from many angles. In addition to these personal accounts on topics such as supporting active duty military and veterans, celebrating Native American and Hispanic heritage and fostering a culture of inclusion and giving, the publication includes photos from across the DHG footprint and a listing of “Ten Simple Tips for Fostering an Inclusive Work Environment” (view tips).
“At DHG, we seek opportunities for our women to excel in their careers in addition to attracting and promoting a diverse workforce. Our Women Forward program is one way we celebrate inclusion and diversity through learning and leadership opportunities for both women and men,” says Jessica Hewitt, CPA, DHG Manager & Women Forward Champion in Hampton Roads
DHG’s celebration of inclusion and diversity will span across all of the firm’s digital platforms, with conversation on DHG’s social media channels, the Life at DHG blog, the CEO blog and the Life at DHG podcast series, featuring an exclusive podcast interview with Jina Etienne, President & CEO of The National Association of Black Accountants, Inc. (NABA). (Listen here).
