DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION

DEFINING

DIVERSITY

To understand how to best create an industry that not only attracts, but retains diverse individuals, we must first define diversity. Diversity is, put simply, the state of variety. What’s important to us is the quality of involving, celebrating, and advancing people from a range of different social and ethnic backgrounds, of different genders, sexual orientations, abilities, religions, educations, national origins, etc. We empower and appreciate the rich dimensions of diversity through inclusion, recognition, and establishing unwavering trust amongst our entire workforce.

HOW WE'RE MEETING THIS - IN ACTION

  • Hiring to meet immediate company need while keeping diversity at the forefront
  • Getting involved in programs and groups that are global, regional, and local
  • Advancing technology and measuring success in engaging in DEI in order to make for a better future
  • Empowering our leadership to uphold our high standard of DEI.
  • Engaging all people in the company, especially our leaders, in order to plan for not just today but for the future.
  • Aiming to create and uphold a culture where inclusiveness is instinctive and not an initiative.

PURPOSE,

VISION &

MISSION

At Gateway Financial Partners, our financial services are universally accessible to all people. We serve our team and clients through our values of partnership, teamwork, innovation, superior customer experience, integrity, respect, and freedom. Our advisors are independent. They have the power and ability to serve their clients from a diverse range of backgrounds how THEY see fit. We support each and every independent mission of every one of our advisors, and all of their clients, wherever they fall on The Bench of Life. We vow to nurture and sustain a culture where differences drive innovative solutions and where our care for DEI in our immediate humanity, comes first. Here’s how Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion make us better:

ACKNOWLEDGE

We're able to better serve our advisors and their clients by understanding the thick layers of culture and quality.

FOSTER

We are not looking for advisors that fit a certain mold. Rather, we are looking to serve our current and future diverse advisor base to full potential.

ELEVATE

Our values are the foundation of our business. By offering a culture that is rewarding and supportive, we’re able to build long-term relationships. We want our advisors and our team with us from day 1, to the end of their careers.
