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.

We believe everyone deserves the best possible start in their education and career. That's why we're proud to partner with programs like Seattle's Rainier Scholars, a unique mentoring program for hardworking, low-income students of color.
