Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
Macdonald Sager LLP embraces diversity and inclusion both at our firm and in the community because we believe it makes us a better firm for our team members and for our clients. We believe in retaining the best and brightest at our firm, regardless of gender, race, nationality, ethnic origin, creed, sexual orientation, marital status, family status, gender identity or disability, and we are committed to creating and maintaining an open, inclusive, and flexible culture to meet the evolving needs of our most important asset – our people.
We are proud of the initiatives we have implemented as we strive toward our goal of being an inclusive and diverse organization:
To help champion our firm’s diversity goals, Macdonald Sager has formed a dedicated Diversity & Inclusion team, consisting of firm members at all levels. Guided by our Diversity & Inclusion Policy, the team has implemented a number of successful initiatives and awareness campaigns. The team meets regularly to explore and plan new programs and activities that support all aspects of a diverse and inclusive environment.

Educating our Firm about Accessibility
