Diversity & Inclusion
Cornerstone of Our CultureBrouse McDowell is committed to leading the way when it comes to diversity and inclusion. We believe it creates a better working environment for all and allows us to more creatively solve our client’s problems.
Where the Best and Brightest SucceedWe are proud of our culture of equality that allows the best and the brightest to succeed. We strive to recruit, retain, and promote a diverse population that reflects the communities and clients we serve. This is reflected in the firm’s leadership where women serve as members of our Executive Committee, as chairs of our practice groups, and as chairs of our committees.
