Understand Unconscious Bias, recognize how it manifests in our lives, take steps to mitigate the impact of acting from bias, and encourage associates to have brave conversations around biases and how they impact our decisions, our culture and, ultimately, the success of Wipfli.
Approximately 1,500 Wipfli associates have or will have participated in Unconscious Bias training by the end of 2020. Wipfli takes pride in the deep commitment associates have shown for Unconscious Bias training. The firm’s leadership has been steadfast in its commitment towards an equitable workplace and community, and the voluntary participation of associates in this journey of discovery and learning speaks volumes about their commitment to a more equitable culture.
Business Resource Groups have received enormous support and have a significant number of allies. Both groups are active within the organization and reaching out to the community for collaboration and learning
We are relentlessly ensuring that people see others like themselves at Wipfli and, also, that they know they have allies who wish to support them. The future of our firm depends on building a more diverse workforce where our work culture and our clients benefit from the diversity of ideas our associates bring.
