We believe that our emphasis on hiring talented, collegial, and civic-minded individuals with unique, yet complementary, skillsets helps discourage groupthink biases and ensure our decisions consider a wide range of perspectives. In our view, this dynamic is inherent in more effective organizations.
One of LIM’s core values is teamwork, whereby we foster a collaborative environment that encourages professional and personal development among individuals with diverse backgrounds and talents.
In 2022, we formed an IDEA Working Group shaped by our values and work with team members from all areas of the firm representing different backgrounds and life experiences. The goal of this group is to develop a framework that seeks to:
- Educate our employees on how to promote IDEA at LIM.
- Advocate for diversity via our external networks, volunteering, and recruiting.
- Collaborate with our employees to achieve high levels of engagement by understanding areas of strength and improvement.
