GOOD CITIZENSHIP

Committed to Inclusion,
Diversity, and Social
Responsibility

William Blair’s values incorporate founder William Blair’s vision of sound financial advice, community engagement, and citizenship. We are committed to being a long-term partner to the communities in which we live and work.
Inclusion & Diversity

Creating a workplace culture where our colleagues feel confident to be themselves and know that their voices and perspectives will be heard and valued is without question the right thing to do.

Community Partners

Through our “community partners” program, we have supported college preparation and graduation initiatives, established mentoring relationships, provided new computer labs for after-school and summer programs, supported arts education in public schools, and brought nutritious food to school children and their families.

Charitable Support

William Blair and its foundation provide financial support to hundreds of charities through grants, sponsorships, and an employee matching-gifts program. Our employees also contribute to their communities through their time and leadership, and to support their engagement, we offer paid time off to volunteer.

OUR COMMITMENT TO MIFID II

Actively Transparent:
MiFID II

In response to the European MiFID II Directive, William Blair Investment Management plans to absorb external research costs for clients globally, not just those subject to MiFID II’s research rules. We plan to implement the same treatment for all of our clients as soon as we are able to pay hard dollars for external research across our investment strategies.
