Hartman Executive Advisors strives to make a positive impact on the communities where we work and live by volunteering for worthy causes, supporting mission-driven organizations, and creating opportunities for others to thrive, grow and achieve their goals.
Since our founding in 2004, our corporate volunteering has taken many forms. As we grow, we make it a point to survey employees about their preferences for volunteering and even invite family members to participate alongside the Hartman team. We have an annual Day of Service for all employees and several other opportunities throughout the year where we lend our time to support our community. Many Hartman employees also provide professional expertise to nonprofit organizations, where they help with operational needs such as marketing, technology, strategic planning and more, enabling the organizations to improve operations and focus on mission accomplishment.
Hartman is also committed to building a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace. Recognizing that systemic racism and other barriers to equity exist everywhere, we are committed to taking action to ensure that everyone has opportunities to succeed, focusing first on our own space in the technology industry. We are holding ourselves accountable to making progress within our own firm, our networks and professional organizations. Hartman is focused on being a part of the solution.
In 2020, we created the “Dream, Believe & Achieve” Leadership Series, a year-long speaker series for aspiring career women in business and technology, including our own interns, to jumpstart their professional networks and provide a unique mentorship experience as they meet distinguished female leaders across a variety of industries.
Hartman also advocates for the state of Maryland to help create a strong business environment. Our leadership works to promote the creation of policies for businesses, economic development and job creation, and our financial contributions and volunteer hours have impacted many of the state’s most pressing challenges, including poverty, hunger, healthcare, education and economic development.
Hartman is a past recipient of the Maryland Business Philanthropy Award, presented by the Maryland Chamber of Commerce, Baltimore Business Journal, and the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP). The award honors organizations that make Maryland a better place to live, work and do business.
