Commitment to Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

Our DE&I vision:

As One-Orion, we pride ourselves in sustaining a work environment that is inclusive and considers the full range of human diversity. Our team’s growth-focused mindset, fearless innovation, and entrepreneurial spirit depends heavily on the collaboration of team members with varied perspectives and experiences.

Our Orion team member experience is built around equity, respect and a sense of belonging. We’re identifying and eliminating barriers to fair treatment in how we attract, recruit, onboard, develop, and retain team members to ensure access, opportunity, and advancement for all. There’s a lot of work to be done, and we fearlessly embrace it.”

Eric Clarke, CEO, Orion Advisor Solutions

We place an intense focus on ensuring our team members have the tools, resources, and support they need to realize their unique vision for success. Fostering an inclusive environment where everyone feels welcome and valued is a key part in making this happen. In 2018, Orion started a formal program to embark on our DE&I journey and track progress along the way. We’ve accelerated our progress over the past year and are putting our thoughts into action by building and enhancing our programs and policies to bring an inclusive culture to life for our people.

“Orion cares about the health and well-being of its team members. That’s why we have the option to work remotely or in the office and introduced “Working the Orion Way” where we pledge to take time for ourselves during the day and to leave work at work.”
