Culture at IR+M

At IR+M, our culture is fueled by inclusivity, collegiality, and collaboration, and provides a haven for all IR+Mers to bring their true selves to work – wherever that may be.  As a firm, we are deeply committed to elevating those around us – our clients, our community, and our colleagues.  Through volunteerism and charitable giving, we espouse the importance of community outreach.  We celebrate and raise funds for organizations that live in our hearts during our annual IR+M Gives BACK Week.  We come together from all corners of the firm to form Networking Circles, which allow us to share personal and professional experiences and advice.  We gather for colleague-initiated cooking classes, boot camps, and crafters corners, and organize intern mock interviews and trivia nights.  At IR+M, we are always working to become ever better.

Throughout my years at IR+M, I’ve been continually moved by our shared commitment to preserving our extraordinary culture. Integrity, respect, and compassion for others run deeply at IR+M, and are reflected in our Core Values. It’s an incredible feeling to be part of a team that readily embraces our surrounding community and each other.

Community Involvement

Together, IR+M’s Community Outreach Group and Volunteer Action Committee lead our efforts to foster a more inclusive, equitable, and diverse community through philanthropic and volunteer activities.  The IR+M Community Initiative, which was launched in January 2021, is predicated on six key themes and aims to address and enhance the awareness of racial injustice and social inequities in Boston neighborhoods and beyond.  The themes include equity in education, economic opportunity and empowerment, equity in healthcare, justice and law enforcement, breaking down barriers and building bridges across communities, and voting and civic engagement.  The initiative highlights charitable and community organizations that support each theme, and employee donations to these organizations will be double matched by IR+M.  As a firm, we have pledged to commit a meaningful donation to this effort over the next five years.
