Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

An ongoing quest to be better, together

At Abdo, we are committed to increasing our diversity, providing equitable treatment of each other, and fostering an inclusive environment. Our hope is for all employees to bring their authentic selves to work so we can grow in our knowledge of others and appreciate our differences. We are better together.

Systematic injustice and racism are ongoing issues in our society, and Abdo is firmly committed to ongoing improvement in creating an inclusive workplace where every person feels engaged, appreciated and welcomed.

Our diversity, equity and inclusion efforts are integrated into our hiring and operations practices, plus lead us to valuable partnerships and eye-opening involvement in community initiatives.

Our commitment to DEI

At Abdo, we recognize the need for continuous improvement in diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives throughout our firm and the accounting industry at large. We believe that when we understand each other better, we grow better together.

Our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee looks forward to implementing a full scope of ideas, projects, and initiatives in 2022 and beyond, moving our firm forward through continued learning and community involvement.

We have increased our number of women at the highest leadership level in recent years, with the last four additions to our partner group being female. We strive for continued growth in our ability to attract and retain women and people of color within our firm, and are working towards greater equity and diversity for all within our industry.
