Our Commitment to Diversity
We at Boston Private stand in solidarity with the Black community in the condemnation of racially-motivated violence and discriminatory treatment. The events of the last few weeks are the latest, but by no means the only, examples of racism in our communities and remind us of our responsibility to be part of both local and national solutions for social justice.
Like our country, our company is made stronger by diversity. We are committed to ensuring our firm’s culture continues to reflect diversity and our work environments are thoughtfully contemplated to ensure fair and equal opportunities for all colleagues, clients, partners and neighbors.
We are proud of our longstanding commitment to investment in historically disadvantaged communities through financial education, resources and mentorship. We will continue that work and identify ways to grow and enhance our partnerships. We also commit to dialoging internally and engaging expert resources to deepen our understanding of the issues and to learn how to correct the biases and systems that limit the full participation and achievements of Black contributors.
At Boston Private, we understand that “wealth” means more than the accumulation of money. It’s about the potential of that wealth: what it can achieve, how it can help, whose lives it can change for the better. We promise to use our wealth of resources, knowledge, influence and voices to make meaningful change.
