Diversity and Inclusion

CBM is proud to be a professional services accounting firm with above-average representation of women and minorities within its leadership team and overall staff. To date:

  • 47% of CBM’s firm leadership is female
  • 65% of CBM’s staff is female
  • 31% of CBM’s team are represented by minorities

Additionally, as of January 1, 2019, the chair of CBM’s board of directors is female. (Read our announcement: “Executive Vice President Patricia Drolet Elected as Chair of the Board of Directors of CBM“).

CBM realizes our differences make each of us unique; our firm has historically championed diverse causes with our expertise, having served as one of the first auditors for the National Organization for Women and Planned Parenthood.

Every individual brings a different perspective, experience, lifestyle and culture. CBM values, respects and supports each and every team member, regardless of his or her ethnicity, gender, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, education or religion. When we hire a new team member, we do so based solely on the person’s experience, skills and enthusiasm. Joining CBM means joining a team proud of its openness and willingness to welcome individuals from all walks of life.
