Man and Woman at Podium


Baird is committed to inclusion & diversity for our clients, our associates and the communities where we live and work. We view inclusion & diversity as an ongoing journey – one of shared responsibility, continuous improvement and a focus on progress.

We invite you to join us as we work together to foster an environment where diversity unites rather than divides us.

Through our partnership with organizations like Cristo Rey, Baird interns like Victoria Rios work alongside our seasoned investment professionals.
