At Skolnik, we embrace diversity as a core value that benefits our employees, as well as the customers and communities we serve. We believe a diverse environment is a vibrant environment where an open, inclusive atmosphere benefits everyone. Also, it enables us to respond with greater agility to the challenges faced by our customers in a diverse, multicultural world. We cultivate a truly supportive and inclusive work environment that is enriched by the open exchange of a wide range of insights and perspectives.
Our Diversity Committee promotes this commitment by developing and implementing initiatives to identify, recruit, develop, promote, retain, and advance an increasingly diverse group of talented staff and professional advisors. We believe that good citizenship is a fundamental corporate responsibility, and so we actively engage with the communities in which we live and work. The collective strength of our differences enables us to better serve our clients and create enduring relationships with each other and our community.
Furthermore, we believe that diversity in backgrounds, experiences and perspectives make us stronger as a company, and we are committed to investing in that strength by learning about other cultures, accepting others beliefs, and learning to live and work together cohesively. In a world that promotes diversity, we all benefit by living authentic lives, not having to hide what others may see as unacceptable. When we hide our authenticity, we diminish our energy, our goals and our success.
Skolnik extends equal opportunity employment to staff of varied backgrounds — regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, age, disability, or social perspective.
