Women Leading @ Crowe- The mission of Crowe Women's Programming is to inspire, grow and connect women across the firm to enable them to reach their full potential. Our women leaders will serve as role models not only to the next generation of women coming up through the firm but also to the firm overall. Our efforts will be focused on advancing women's development in the firm and will be connected to the firm's overall diversity and inclusion efforts through members on the Women's Council.
As part of our ongoing efforts to advance diversity and inclusion (D&I) at Crowe, each individual at Crowe is encouraged to participate in the "Diversity to Inclusion" webinar series, which is designed to help you uncover and overcome unconscious biases. These are the attitudes or stereotypes that influence our actions and decisions without us even realizing it. This series is available to Crowe employees through Crowe University and live presentations.

Inclusive Leadership Bravo Badge- Crowe is committed to building a diverse, highly inclusive work environment where we value differences in each other to make us all stronger. This individual is leveraging the diversity of experiences, background and perspectives of others to make better decisions, fuel innovation and create an environment where our team members and clients feel a sense of belonging.
A flexible and supportive work culture is a culture that openly acknowledges that work and personal life are interdependent. This includes our support of individuals who have a need or desire to propose an alternative to their work schedule. Crowe offers both reduced schedule and offsite work arrangements.
A majority of our people utilize the ability to work at a remote location, such as their home or a coffee shop, on a regular basis. Additionally, about 10% of our people participate in reduced schedule and/or formal off-site flexible work arrangements.
For some of our people, working in a Crowe office or client location each day is necessary based upon the nature of the work they perform for the firm. However, many others are able to take advantage of Crowe’s flexible work arrangements for 100% off-site and or reduced schedule arrangements. In addition, our Where to Work mobility strategy trusts employees to work where its most convenient and where they’ll be most productive.
Reduced work schedule arrangements are made available to assist personnel in managing responsibilities outside the firm. Schedules are determined on an individual basis based on the needs of the individual, the business unit, their workgroup and the client.
Paid Parental Leave provides six weeks of paid time off for each parental event for the birth parent and non-birth parent, and runs concurrently with the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). A parental event is defined as the care for a child immediately following birth or adoption and actions of custody of a child. Parental leave is recommended to be taken in succession for up to 6 weeks, however we understand that employees need flexibility to balance the demands of work and family. Therefore, intermittent parental leave may be taken in 2 week increments not to exceed a total of 6 weeks and must be taken within the 12-month period immediately following the parental event.
