Culture, diversity and inclusion

Family First employee network group

Celebrating and supporting working families at RSM

Our Family First employee network group (ENG) fosters an inclusive and supportive culture for working families and caregivers—one that values and encourages different perspectives on issues important to families. The goal is for those perspectives to be taken into consideration in the employment, career development and retention efforts of diverse individuals in the workplace. Family First serves as an active voice around shared family challenges and promotes an inclusive, respectful workplace.

Family First partners with other ENGs to promote mental health and well-being, work-life flexibility and development for working parents/caregivers. Through activities and sponsorships, this ENG connects employees with family commitments to enable them to support one another, share knowledge of firm benefits and address issues in the workplace that affect families.

Inclusion Starts with I: Family First

In our “Inclusion Starts with I” series, our then-Managing Partner and CEO Joe Adams hosted candid conversations with members of our employee network groups. In this video, he talks with the national leader and other members of the Family First group.

Working Mother & Working Father of the Year Award

Our Family First ENG connects employees with family commitments so they can support one another and address workplace issues that affect families. Each year, Family First sponsors our Working Mother/Working Father awards to honor two employees who successfully manage personal and professional priorities while providing exceptional experiences for our clients and for one another. This year’s honorees, Becky Strope-Boggus and John St Amand, were also selected to represent RSM and to be recognized alongside fellow working parents, caregivers and leaders at Seramount’s WorkBeyond Summit in New York on Oct. 25, 2022.

Becky Strope-Boggus

"We have such a strong support network and that includes our RSM people. Whether it’s meals, baby supplies, clothes, or money for takeout, we have so many people we can call on when we need extra support."

Meet John St Amand

"It’s easy and natural to be hard on ourselves and focus on our shortcomings as a parent – the times we didn’t get enough sleep or had a mental hangover from an issue weighing on us. However, as many of my mentors have taught me, it’s important to give ourselves grace and remember it’s not an easy world to live in these days for anyone – our kids included."
