Statement from Bob Santella, Chief Executive Officer

The IPC work culture is one that fosters inclusion, prioritizes diversity and collaborates with our local communities. Our strength as an organization is the sum of our different backgrounds, perspectives, skills and geographies; supported by an ironclad commitment to constructive dialogue and open-mindedness. We encourage all team members to actively support our commitment to join in a celebration of social equality and justice, with a focus on actions that improve our firm and communities.

Breaking Down Our Equality Commitments

We are taking a comprehensive, results-driven approach to D&I in our workplace and communities. Our D&I strategies include:

Inclusive Hiring and Promotion Practices 

We are committed to fair and inclusive business practices to ensure our employees feel valued and have access to opportunities.

Developing Strategic Partnerships 

Continually developing and strengthening our partnerships with diversity focused organizations to benefit our people.

Education and Awareness 

We are committed to accelerating our efforts in this area to inspire and engage our business leaders and employees to foster a more inclusive work environment and be active agents of change. 

Investing in Our Communities 

We understand that success comes from investing in the future, and that’s as true for our communities as it is for our products and services.

Our Equality Champions

Our employees are at the center of everything we do and play an important role in our path towards equality. We strive to elevate employees who are leading change within our business and communities by providing a platform to share their experiences and perspectives.
