Baird is proud to be a founding partner of Ownership Works, a nonprofit with a mission to increase prosperity through shared ownership at work, launched today with the support of 60 partners across the private, public and nonprofit sectors. Ownership Works will develop and help implement broad-based employee ownership programs to create better work environments and financial opportunities for employees. It also aims to help businesses improve their performance by attracting and retaining engaged employees invested in their company’s success.

"Baird’s employee-ownership model is integral to how we work together to achieve great outcomes on behalf of our clients,” said Brian Doyal, Co-Head of Baird Global Investment Banking. “Given our convictions around a shared ownership model and our commitment to creating more diverse and inclusive environments, we are thrilled to be a supporter of Ownership Works. We look forward to helping build awareness of employee-ownership models – particularly with historically underrepresented groups – and increase opportunities to build generational wealth."
