Our Diversity & Inclusion Pledge

We believe our clients must have the best people, and the best people are drawn from the broadest pool of applicants. We believe diverse teams and an inclusive culture lead to superior performance in the market for our clients and create better returns on their people investment.

Our results speak for themselves. We consistently deliver higher gender diversity outcomes for our clients – around 70% of all successful appointments are women and around 50% of senior appointments (over $200,000 remuneration p.a.) are women. We also have a strong talent pool of women in our firm, with over 70 percent of our employees being women and around 60 percent of our partners being women.


Our Diversity Pledge in Action

We live our diversity pledge at every touch point, across all three of our business areas – Ampersand Executive, Ampersand Search and Ampersand Advisory.

Our Culture of Diversity & Teamwork

Diversity and teamwork are essential to our mission as a firm. Diverse thinking enables us to develop better ideas, respond to the needs of our clients and ensure our people work to the maximum of their potential.

For our people to excel, they must feel they are operating in an inclusive environment that welcomes and supports differences, and that encourages input from all perspectives. Our people have the right to expect a workplace in which the richness of their lives and experience is welcomed and valued by their team and by the firm. Flexible work practices are embedded into our culture and many of our partners are role modelling flexible practices.

We recognise and reward our people around two factors – the achievement of quality outcomes for our clients and the recognition of how we live our values. The Ampersandian is a peer recognition award, where one individual  each quarter is honoured for demonstrated living Ampersand’s values of being Alive & Authentic and operating in collaboration with peers, across states/regions, practices and service lines.

All our people attend diversity & inclusion training as part of their orientation into the firm as new hires and as part of their ongoing professional development. This training includes raising awareness around our own unconscious bias and stereotyping.
