We believe the best teams are comprised of individuals who feel free to be themselves. We celebrate individual identity, strengths, interests, and experience, and work hard to create an environment where people of all backgrounds can thrive.

Culture with a cause

Service is a celebrated part of our culture. We support our clients’ causes and our employees’ passions with in-house and community volunteer opportunities. Employees can participate in GEM’s Community Outreach Committee or the GEM Foundation, an employee-led group that makes philanthropic grants to Charlotte-based nonprofits. We also hold firm-wide volunteer events each year and provide additional small group volunteer opportunities.


Recent GEM Foundation grant recipients include Generation2080, a Charlotte-based nonprofit committed to reversing generational poverty. The Foundation’s multiyear curriculum provides community members with comprehensive education on saving, investing, home ownership, and more.
