Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging


At PFM, diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging are foundational to the firm’s success – in serving our clients; in creating a dynamic and welcoming work environment for our colleagues; in partnering with external stakeholders; and in realizing our overarching purpose of providing advice for people who transform their world.

It is vitally important to us that both our colleagues and our clients can recognize themselves in PFM. This is why diversity of thought, perspective, experience and background is embedded in our principles of Ingenuity, Sustainability and Resourcefulness.

Our principles are equations that reflect our fundamental belief that the work we accomplish together is richer, more valuable and more transformative than anything one person could do on their own.



We believe that much of PFM’s strength lies within the collective views of our diverse workforce, and our ability to welcome and incorporate multiple perspectives in each of our offices and teams every day. Including our colleagues’ unique insights, talents and points of view enable us to best serve the interests of our clients. 

Our sincere, unwavering commitment to diversity & inclusion is demonstrated through consistent and creative efforts to attract, retain, and develop a diverse workforce, regardless of race, sexual orientation, religion, age, gender, disability status or any other diversity dimension. Whether you join us for an internship, as an entry-level staff member, or as an experienced professional, your development, growth and achievement will be cultivated and championed with your unique abilities, experiences and viewpoints in mind.



The decisions PFM’s clients make can affect millions of people on a daily basis. So when clients entrust us with their business, they really are entrusting us with the care of people from every walk of life. In order to deliver the best advice to our clients, we need to empathize with people from every background. This is why we place such a premium on understanding and integrating the perspectives and experiences of our colleagues. The work we do matters. As a result, your unique viewpoint matters at PFM, and it matters to our clients.



Through philanthropy and community engagement, PFM's employees support the diverse communities where our colleagues live and work. Without a keen understanding of the world around us, we can’t provide advice for people transforming their world. That’s why you’ll find us volunteering, coaching youth sports, participating in the arts and competing in local races.
