A Message from our Founder and Executive Chair
March 8, 2022
Across all our Peerage Partner companies we are fortunate to have many accomplished female leaders. Today, on International Women’s Day, I would like to acknowledge all of them and to reflect on the invaluable contributions they have made to our collective success as an organization.
The single most consistent priority for Peerage is our focus on attracting, developing, and retaining the best talent available across every enterprise. Our quest for excellent human capital is precisely why we have women as CEOs, presidents, chief operating officers, finance and accounting professionals, marketing directors, administrative support professionals and thousands of all-star female brokers, agents and sales associates.
Diversity within our partner companies is not something we encourage because we are being “fair” to women – or, frankly, to any other group. Diversity is something we encourage because it creates a stronger and more resilient culture for our growing organization.
The way we think, evaluate risks, and assess opportunities is a product of both personality and experience. Where we have diverse backgrounds and voices at the table, we also have diverse perspectives and opinions. Ultimately, that leads to the discussions and the debate that result in better decision making, better risk taking and better business.
The data are clear; companies that have diverse leadership teams outperform competitors and create more value. Just as society cannot afford to exclude the talent of half its population, the same is true in business. As a talent-driven services company dedicated to providing trusted advice to our clients, Peerage needs to continue focusing on inclusion in our own ranks and on fully developing all our human capital.
We have made significant progress in recent years, but there is still a long way to go. On International Women’s Day, we acknowledge all the women who have partnered with us and who make us better and stronger today and tomorrow.
