RSM's Joe Adams Signs CEO Letter for Disability Inclusion

CHICAGO – (October 21, 2021) – RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – is pleased to announce that Managing Partner and CEO Joe Adams has joined more than 80 other CEOs in signing Disability:IN’s CEO Letter on Disability Inclusion.

Top CEOs from across the country have signed the letter urging Fortune 1000 companies to advance disability inclusion. Additional companies represented by signatories to date include Bank of America, Honeywell, Salesforce, Target Corp. and Verizon, among others.

Disability:IN is the leading nonprofit resource for business disability inclusion worldwide. The organization’s vision is an inclusive global economy where people with disabilities participate fully and meaningfully. Disability:IN is committed to promoting the full inclusion of people with disabilities, to inspire accessible innovation for all, and to foster cultures of inclusion.

“At RSM, we believe that inclusion starts with ‘I’,” said Adams. “This means that each of our 13,000+ caring, collaborative, curious and courageous critical thinkers across the U.S. and Canada are committed to doing their part to advance understanding and inclusion – not only across our firm, but within the communities where we live and work. We know that when people are understood and included, they feel a sense of acceptance and belonging. This builds trust and leads to strong relationships while empowering people with confidence to achieve their best. It’s what we call ‘the power of being understood,’ and it’s how we bring to life our core values of respect, integrity, teamwork, excellence and stewardship. I’m honored to join other top company leaders in committing to advancing disability inclusion, and I encourage others to do the same.”
