Our Values

Building a Stronger Us.

We are committed to building an environment that doesn’t just welcome diversity, equity and inclusion but celebrates it.

 The value of individuality forms the foundation of our core principles: humanity, honesty, connectedness, drive and curiosity. Putting people above all else means elevating every voice to join the conversation, creating space for new perspectives, and supporting unique strengths. We recognize there is overdue work to be done in this area — both within our organization and the association industry as a whole. We hold our clients to these same standards and are committed to evaluating our own infrastructure and systems to track and preserve ongoing progress while maintaining accountability.

Ultimately, we believe championing individuality and inclusivity unlocks greater potential to:

  • Engage in meaningful conversations where all staff can feel comfortable sharing honest questions and concerns.
  • Empower the sharing of knowledge and experiences to create an inclusive environment that fosters and encourages authenticity.
  • Embrace new, innovative ideas to push the status quo and elevate diverse narratives.
  • Embolden a collaborative culture where everyone feels heard and recognized for their contributions.
  • Elevate involvement with organizations dedicated to making a positive impact on our community and society as a whole through advocacy, volunteerism, education, and financial support.

Our approach is simple. Our results are extraordinary.

McKinley Advisors consistently applies a proven, flexible approach to deliver value to our clients: Look, Learn, Plan, Deliver.
