To continue to build a workforce that advocates for equality, cherishes different backgrounds, and values unique perspectives while also championing our mission statement of fostering a culture of support and guidance.
Our Community Involvement
Today more than ever, a diverse and inclusive workforce is vital to the success of a company – and its employees. Diversity and inclusion fuel innovation and creativity and increase employee morale.
At WG, we actively cultivate a safe environment that encourages employees to bring their true, authentic selves to work daily. Within our firm, we embrace diversity and strive to strengthen our staff’s sense of belonging. Our primary focus is to sustain an environment where staff from all backgrounds have an equitable opportunity to thrive and succeed. We prioritize fostering a culture that values the contributions and unique perspectives of every individual. We empower our employees, place trust in them, and actively involve them in continuous efforts to enhance our workplace.
Our internal committee is committed to executing new or existing initiatives using the four components of the Accounting Inclusion Maturity Model (AIMM), including Workplace (Culture), Workforce (People), Marketplace (Clients), and Supplier & Community. The AIMM helps to evaluate the degree to which a firm follows practices in diversity and inclusion.

Women’s History Month Podcast
Women are playing a major role in the accounting field, and the impact they have had on the industry cannot be overstated. During this Women’s History Month, we are honoring the women in our lives who have made a lasting impression and how they inspired the next generation to grow into leaders.
To me, the meaning of DE&I is having an open mind of being able to listen and understand everyone’s voices while also being free from any preconceived notions. WG has a strong uplifting culture that celebrates diversity in the firm, and I’m looking forward to learning from other individuals.
My DE&I work means helping current and future professionals that step foot into WG be their best selves. I want to help build off of the WG culture of support and guidance to make sure that everyone, no matter what background they come from, is celebrated and not tolerated.
To me, DE&I means creating a workplace that I can be myself in while being respected and treated fairly regardless of personal characteristics that make me unique from everyone else. My goal as a part of the committee to learn about the ways in which I can help others (especially new hires to the firm) feel that they can be themselves with full acceptance and belonging when coming to work.
The firm’s roots start with the core value of people first. That culture has given us the opportunity to be open-minded from inception, and true leaders in the industry. Our flexible work arrangements have been an important tool allowing all to bring their best self to work.
