Diversity, Equity &
Inclusion Program

Kidder Mathews has long fostered an inclusive & non-discriminatory culture.

In an effort to increase our awareness and educate ourselves in more profound ways to help address systemic racism and social injustices that occur, often subconsciously, all around us, we’re excited to announce the launch of our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Program.

Celebrated expert, Dr. Caprice Hollins, of Cultures Connecting, will lead our program with a kickoff event addressing race relations in the 21st century. In this keynote, we will learn a framework and common language for the work we all need to do, to effectively engage across cultures and undo systems of oppression. To help develop and support our ongoing program, we’ve created a DEI team as well as a list of educational resources including books, videos, and websites.
