Navigant’s Diversity & Inclusion Program is committed to fostering a progressive work environment that creates awareness, supports an open exchange of ideas and encourages a collaborative culture. Our inclusion initiative helps us all more deeply understand and appreciate the needs of our colleagues and clients. Navigant recognizes that its employees bring different interests, goals and perspectives to the Diversity & Inclusion Program. Therefore, the Firm has created five Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) that provide employees companywide with virtual and office based opportunities to connect to the Program and with each other.
For example, during the Summer of 2012, Navigant sponsored companywide and office based programming associated with the Olympics. The Olympic games were a great occasion to recognize and celebrate diverse cultures around the world and in our organization. From Olympic viewing parties, to office Olympic competitions to trivia competitions and photo contests that highlighted the experiences of those in our London office, we connected and celebrated our shared values and diversity.
Navigant has a long-standing commitment to celebrating diversity; diversity of thought, solutions and people. We are among Human Rights Campaign’s Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality and have earned a 100 percent rating on HRC’s Corporate Equality Index.

Dedication to Diversity
Navigant’s Diversity & Inclusion program helps employees forge new relationships, share expertise and advice and receive valuable feedback and insights. It allows our professionals to grow their internal and external networks, develop a greater affinity for different experiences and enhance cultural competency—a vital leadership skill in today’s global business environment.
Employee Resource Groups
For those whose interests, participation objectives and networking goals relate to a specific affinity group, Navigant has developed a robust program of ERGs. Employees do not have to identify with an affinity group to participate. The following ERGs support members as they collaborate and network with colleagues: Latino Ancestry, Asian Ancestry, Black/African Ancestry, Women and Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and Allies (LGBTA).
Navigant works to connect members of each group at local offices and Firmwide with networking activities, client-related events, professional and personal development, and community service projects. Each initiative accomplishes one or more core program objectives including awareness, connection and personal development.
