One Vision, One Community, One Epiq
We are comprised of colleagues and friends. We aspire to be a company where all people feel a sense of belonging and a freedom to be their authentic selves at work. We know we are at our best when team members have that sense of belonging and freedom. We also understand that despite the progress that has been made, the world we live in falls short in providing equal opportunities for all. Through our efforts, we firmly believe we can be a force for positive change as we continue to take steps to advance diversity, promote equity, and foster inclusion within Epiq.
Diversity: encompasses the full range of characteristics and experiences that make each individual unique. Everyone at Epiq is diverse, no two of us are the same, which is what makes us great.
Equity: creates an even playing field for all our employees to be recognized, rewarded, and developed. By achieving equity, all our employees stand on their merits alone in our pay for-performance culture.
Inclusion: seeks to ensure that all people have their views heard by creating an environment where employees feel valued, respected, accepted, and encouraged to fully participate in the organization

Our Employee Programs
With offices, employees, and clients around the globe, Epiq understands the importance of having an inclusive perspective. This has enabled us to understand different cultures, recognize international issues, respond to world events, and embrace the diversity and strength of our people and our clients. We continue to invest in global DEI programming by spotlighting unique cultural experiences of employees across the globe.
Employee Resource Groups at Epiq
At Epiq, we are committed to building a culture of inclusion by connecting our global network of employees through Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). These groups provide a platform for employees to build relationships, offer feedback, and support each other through shared experiences and interests. Our ERGs are crucial in shaping our diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives and business strategies.
Our ERGs serve both as a catalyst for a positive and supportive work environment and as an avenue of communication between ERG members and senior leadership and executives. Our ERGs are also led, developed, and maintained by employee volunteers, so it’s important for us to invest in the futures of these employees the same way they are investing in ours. Our ERG leaders have access to mentorship opportunities, inclusive leadership training alongside senior leaders, and invitations to multiple industry conferences.
We are proud to have an award-winning ERG program that brings employees of diverse backgrounds and their allies together to build community through outreach and education. We are committed to listening and engaging with our ERGs, turning employee feedback into meaningful action, and reporting on our progress and milestones.
