Point B will not stand for systemic racism, inequity or injustice. Anywhere. We are committed to being and acting for others. We are committed to listening, learning, understanding and taking tangible action to create change.
Our goals and beliefs are straightforward: We believe our people flourish in an environment where their viewpoints are valued, not stifled. Our people flourish because their ideas are not quickly ushered to the side in favor of the prevalent thought of the day. Our people flourish in the recognition that everyone's beliefs, backgrounds and differences can contribute to the company's best thinking and collective success.
Equity, diversity and inclusion is more than just a business imperative at Point B; it shapes our ownership model and empowers each of our core values. As we put our people first, equity, diversity and inclusion enables us to not only attract top talent, but also to build honest and lasting relationships that foster collaboration, choice and excellence. We all have ownership at Point B, with opportunities to contribute to the vision of our firm, serve our customers, partners and communities, and help each other thrive.
Who We Are
“My growth and development are results of an ecosystem of equity and diversity that’s been part of Point B from day one. I feel a personal responsibility to create for others the same types of opportunities I’ve been afforded here."

Equity drives our company. To us, equity means creating structures, supports and processes that allow individuals to thrive in their own unique way. We strive to remove unintentional barriers and support associates according to their individual needs. We treat our people equitably by providing each associate with specific development and career growth opportunities.
Deep-rooted diversity. We strive to build a thriving company that is committed to honoring, respecting, and encouraging all of our employees by valuing our differences. We believe in diversity capital—that the highest-performing teams are those that look to leverage diverse perspectives, backgrounds and experiences. Diversity is not limited to categories such as sex, race, gender identity, marital status, ethnicity, nationality, religion, education, age, disability, veteran status or sexual orientation; it runs deeper to encompass factors including background, experience, abilities, skills, and styles of working and thinking.
Inclusive every day. Inclusion is the uniting force that allows our diversity to shine, helping to create a culture of belonging, mutual respect, and connectedness. Our company’s values mean that we all need to embrace each other's differences, knowing we can be stronger because of them. In ways large and small, we want to foster a sense of belonging so that all of us can be our authentic selves.
Creating the future together
The purpose of our company and the principles of equity, diversity and inclusion work hand in hand—advancing an ever-evolving, enduring firm of associates who are striving to live our best lives, as each of us defines them. They make possible the future we are creating together—for ourselves. For our company. For our customers, partners and communities.
