A Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

To thrive as a business and a workplace, CohnReznick champions diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in all that we do – both inside and outside of our organization.

In 2023, Vault recognized CohnReznick as the #5 firm for overall diversity as well as LGBTQ+ diversity, the #3 firm for racial and ethnic diversity, and the #8 firm for ESG Initiatives.

Creating and fostering a community where team members reflect the diversity of the clients we serve elevates our mission to a much higher plain. We are proud to have successfully implemented firm-wide ERGs to advance and elevate the professional success of our people.

Sustainability: The Forefront of Business Resiliency

CohnReznick is committed to driving business resiliency by leveraging the principles of sustainable business practices.

Materiality Assessment Survey

The firm completed a comprehensive materiality assessment to better understand and address the sustainability issues that matter most to our stakeholders and business. Our U.S. and offshore teams participated in a survey that solicited their opinions on CohnReznick’s current sustainability practices and targets, identifying critical topics and areas of opportunity. Based on the results of this survey and the full assessment, we are identifying and prioritizing material sustainability topics.

Solar Stewards

In collaboration with Solar Stewards, CohnReznick is partnering with the Climate Access Fund to support Solar4Us at Henderson Hopkins, a community solar project for low-income households and the first project of its kind in Maryland. When complete, solar panels will be located on the rooftops of buildings on the Henderson-Hopkins school campus in East Baltimore.

Sustainability Gamechangers Awards

Understanding that it takes all members of the business community to bring sustainability to the forefront, we continue to prioritize education as a key component of our strategy. To that end, we completed our second annual Gamechangers in ESG Awards program (program name was recently changed to Sustainability Gamechangers Award). The 2023 program recognized the efforts of four companies and one student who demonstrated a strong commitment to advancing sustainability practices.

It is our hope that, by sharing the success stories of our Sustainability Gamechangers Award winners, others will be inspired to follow their lead into their own workplaces and academic institutions.
