IDEA Mission Statement

Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Accountability


We know and exemplify that there is strength in diversity.

Copley Raff is committed to building and developing a team of compassionate professionals that reflects the communities in which we live and work. One where our employees – regardless of race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, parental status, national origin, different abilities, age, veteran status or other invisible traits – are valued, are provided the opportunities to contribute equally, and are rewarded equitably. We believe in the importance of creating an equitable environment where everyone receives fair treatment, recognition for their accomplishments, and equitable compensation.

Copley Raff will ensure that everyone has equal access to leadership development and growth opportunities within the firm. We are committed to be a workplace that supports our team members to achieve the highest level of success.

To fulfill this truth, we commit to taking specific, measurable actions to recruit talented professionals and encourage retention, support professional development, respect and learn from all cultures, and create a vibrant community.

Professional Growth

We will provide professional growth opportunities to establish an environment that welcomes, supports and challenges all employees and consultants. We will work to increase our knowledge and competence in inclusion, diversity, equity and accountability. We will provide our team members with the tools to be successful and inclusive leaders, mentors, and advocates for IDEA. We will form partnerships with professionals who have expertise in areas related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We will commit to developing leadership opportunities for our team members of color and invest in ensuring their access to leadership roles.


We strive to ensure that our commitment to inclusion, diversity, equity and accountability is reflected in the organizations and communities with which we partner. We know the importance of understanding and addressing the unique needs specific to our client partners around the nation.

We are committed to ensuring that there is zero tolerance for inequality at Copley Raff – and that there is space for everyone.
