Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are not just words to us here at PPM. They are essential components to the Golden Rule: do unto others as you would have them do unto you– our core value as a company. Living this out requires intentional efforts to advance and maintain diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout the firm. A more diverse PPM, is a stronger PPM.
The basic tenets listed below have shaped our company’s view on diversity, equity, inclusion and who we are today.
At PPM, we understand the entire reason we exist is to fulfill the needs of our clients. We are here because our clients have entrusted us to serve them. We are committed to constantly being on the lookout for ways to make our firm more valuable to our clients. We continually analyze our activities to ensure they contribute to the process of fulfilling our clients’ needs, and recognize that diverse talents and perspectives are important to achieving this. Therefore, management is committed to fostering a culture of inclusion and in promoting diversity.
At PPM, we understand that to be a successful company we must perform as a unified team. All team members are expected to contribute to the well-being of the team in an “all for one, one for all” spirit. PPM constantly strives to ensure that employees– regardless of of their race, ethnicity, ancestry, national origin, citizenship, language, age, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, socio-economic background, or religious beliefs – reach their full potential by sharing knowledge, resources, and encouragement whenever possible. A diverse team is a more cohesive team.
We at PPM are committed to building an organization and culture that will outlast any of us as individuals. We continuously strive to evaluate our actions and contribute to more than just the short-term prosperity of the firm. We believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion are vital in ensuring that PPM continues exceeding our client’s expectations for years to come.
We recognize that in spite of our best intentions as professionals and as an organization, mistakes will occur. As soon as a mistake is identified, we immediately acknowledge it, take corrective action, and learn from it. PPM expects all employees – especially management – to treat everyone truthfully and honestly and in an ethical manner at all times. We acknowledge that discrimination and bias must be intentionally prevented and we are dedicated to actively combating them through ongoing education and training for our management group, implementing policies and practices that deal fairly and equitably with all concerned, and holding ourselves accountable for creating a culture of inclusivity.
We understand that diversity goes beyond just visible differences and includes diversity of thought, experience, and perspectives. We strive to create an environment where everyone feels comfortable bringing their authentic selves to work and can contribute to the growth and success of our company. PPM management does not tolerate a double standard and expects adherence to the company’s core principles by everyone. Each employee’s commitment to the firm will be returned in equal measure by management’s commitment to them regardless of of their race, ethnicity, ancestry, national origin, citizenship, language, age, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, socio-economic background, or religious beliefs. PPM recognizes employees for their past, present, and future contribution to the firm
We at PPM understand that what we say and do affects the morale and productivity of others. We do not tolerate any actions that demean the firm, fellow employees, clients, our communities, or the output of the firm in any way. We do not tolerate discrimination of any kind, and we expect all employees to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with the Golden Rule.
At PPM, we understand there may arise tasks that are unappealing or not within one’s expertise, yet they are vital. All staff members, regardless of position or title, – are expected to approach tasks necessary to meet client and company needs without reluctance and with enthusiasm.
At PPM, we are committed to building a unified, diverse and inclusive workplace where everyone has equal opportunities to succeed and thrive.
PPM Gives Back
PPM believes in sharing our time, talent and resources with those in need and to make the world and our communities a better place. This happens at both the corporate and office level, and we encourage and support staff members with involvement in their local communities. Examples include STEM programs, athletics, local foodbanks, scouting, World Outreach, Samaritan’s Purse, Never Thirst, and other programs based on each office’s region of operation.

PPM is unified around a central core value: to run our practice by the time-tested principle of The Golden Rule. This means treating clients, staff members, vendors, regulators, our communities, and everyone our business touches as we would like to be treated. This principle has guided the firm from the beginning, and we are confident that continuing to work and live by it will not only make the world a better place, but will provide the foundation and culture for our staff to thrive, our firm to grow, and our clients to succeed.
