Women's Alliance, Pride Alliance, Veteran's Alliance, ONE Alliance



At William Blair we actively support our Business Resource Groups (BRGs)—ONE Alliance, Pride Alliance, Veterans' Alliance, and Women's Alliance—that promote diversity, raise awareness and understanding of differences, provide support to colleagues and encourage open and courageous conversations across our businesses and communities.

  • ONE Alliance celebrates and embraces all cultures and ethnicities. It is a channel for educating and promoting inclusion, fostering awareness and respect in appreciating the backgrounds and breadth of experiences of our people.
  • Pride Alliance is an association of LGBTQ+ employees and supporters of the LGBTQ+ community. The group cultivates a supportive culture for LGBTQ+ employees and elevate the firm's profile with external stakeholders, clients, and prospective talent.
  • Veterans' Alliance was created to connect William Blair veterans throughout the firm, spread awareness and facilitate solutions to veteran issues throughout the community, as well as supporting the recruitment and retention of veterans into the firm.
  • Women's Alliance is for all employees with the shared goal of empowering women in the workplace to further enhance the firm's success. It aims to create a collaborative environment for sharing ideas, professional development, and raising awareness on the importance of gender diversity across the firm and in the broader community.

William Blair's Alliance Board unites our Business Resource Groups and provides strategic direction to ensure they support the firm's mission of increasing recruitment, retention, community engagement and awareness, focusing on our shared purpose, rather than our differences, to create a more inclusive and collaborative culture.
