Inclusion and Diversity

Inclusion and Diversity – What We Believe

At North Highland, we are welcomed and appreciated for our personal capabilities, characteristics, contributions and diversity of background, thought and experience. As a Human-Centered firm, we believe in connecting hearts and minds and creating a sense of belonging for our people. Together WE can do great things.

what inclusion and diversity means to us

Inclusion:

  • Inclusion means we value, appreciate and welcome each other. It is an attitude of valuing and appreciating the countless personal differences that make us all unique while also focusing on what connects us and makes us similar.

Diversity:

  • Diversity means more than the race, sex or physical abilities. It is also cultural differences, lifestyle, age, background and more - it is the profound social and personal differentiating characteristics that make us individuals and differentiates our work.

Working together in new ways - Networks and partnerships

Networks: To create a sense of belonging at North Highland, it takes all of us working together collectively. A number of networks have developed and are expanding to provide opportunity for connection, conversation and support of our culture.
