Tina Bohn, Director, IT Audit

In my current position as Global DEI Strategic Initiatives Lead, I collaborate closely with our global leader for DEI Susan Haseley, together with global practice and HR leaders, to provide strategic guidance and innovative ideas for promoting DEI policies, programs, and opportunities internally to all employees. My particular focus is on working with stakeholders to eliminate any unconscious bias across the firm in people processes, including pay equity, recruiting, talent management, learning and development and career promotion, by recommending changes to global policy, raising awareness through employee training, and providing frequent opportunities for both formal and informal discussion. My personal goal is to help all my colleagues feel comfortable in their own skin every day. I have and continue to share my personal experience and the challenges of being a lesbian working in tech with my global colleagues during panel discussions, smaller group meetings, as well as during mentorship dialogues.

Champaigne Powell, Senior Recruiter

Within my time at Protiviti, I have been amazed to see all the initiatives surrounding Diversity, Equity & Inclusion that we are not only investing money into, but also time and effort. This is my first time working at an organization where I feel psychologically safe to truly be myself.

As an Afro-Latina woman in the workforce, it is so important that I feel heard, seen and valued in a world where that may not always be the case when I log off for the day. We spend a good amount of time working and you should choose to be somewhere you can live authentically.

Protiviti is a place where every employee can feel accepted knowing their differences bring value to the organization. Your colleagues genuinely want to see you succeed and understand that it takes a village to be successful, but that village must include everyone to get to where we are heading.

Strategic Alliances

We are proud to partner with a number of strategic alliances in order to share related best practices, knowledge and educational resources for our people around the world.

Building wholistic and strong relationships with our alliances is key to our success. An important component of these relationships is to pay it forward and do our part to secure the next generation of leaders through scholarships. We care, we collaborate, but most importantly we deliver on what it means to have relationships built on reciprocity.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Pledges

The events related to the crisis of racial injustice have emanated throughout the U.S. and to other countries worldwide, so we believe it is appropriate to share with you our position, our actions, and how our values guide our actions. Racial injustice and violence have no place in our society or in our company. Together we stand with the Black community in condemning such hatred and seeking resolution, reform, and real change.

Our focus at Protiviti is a long-term commitment for enduring change, even when this progress requires us to be uncomfortable. Meaningful actions require the rich teamwork that is a hallmark of our firm, building on the inertia we are now seeing. The social and racial injustice that we are all witnessing will take time to resolve, but we stand committed to taking focused action to support this transformation.

Protiviti is proud to partner with JPMorgan Chase in the Diverse Supplier Grant Initiative. This program is aimed at providing diverse-owned businesses, with an emphasis on Black, Hispanic, and Latino-owned businesses, access to growth capital they need to more effectively compete and secure corporate contracts from companies like ours, JPMorgan Chase, and the Fortune 500.

Meeting minimum requirements for doing business with large corporations can often be cost-prohibitive for diverse-owned small businesses. This program is being funded by a combination of contributions from JPMorgan Chase, as well as other corporations like ours, with an interest in fostering the success of diverse suppliers.

Through this initiative we aim to lower common financial barriers diverse businesses experience.
