Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
Our diversity defines us, and our commonalities connect us.
We are an incredibly diverse company with many races, ethnicities, beliefs, sexual orientations, and cultures, and we are built on a set of strong principles, including respect and kindness. We are on a journey to advance equality, diversity, and inclusion in our communities.
We are focused on creating an inclusive space across our markets and communities where all feel heard and supported with a commitment to equal development, equal pay, and equal opportunity for all our people.
We know that diversity drives innovation and representation is not only important to our people but key to our continued business success. We know that advancing equality and change requires education, partnering with our communities, and putting in place policies and actions to create a leadership that looks and feels like our customers.
Our employees should feel they have the ability to, Stand up! and Speak up!, and that when they do they will be listened to and heard.
We should, Show up!, so our employees feel supported no matter who they are and bring their whole selves to work.
Our employees should see themselves in leadership and feel our leaders are representative of our markets, our customers and our people.
We are committed to actions that advance lasting change.
We have learned from our people, heard about their experiences, and listened to what equality, diversity, and inclusion means to them which informed our current Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) pillars.
We are committed to ensuring our workplace has gender balance at every level of the organization, especially leadership, and that we publicize and offer equal development opportunities.
We support, encourage, and stand up for the equality and fairness for all sexualities and gender identities.
RACE & ETHNICITY
We recognize that when it comes to race and ethnicity, the experiences of our employees can vary significantly depending on how they identify. We celebrate and support all backgrounds, races, and ethnicities.
Through our ongoing education and awareness initiatives, our people will understand better the various cultural and structural conditions that have resulted in historically excluded racial groups (specifically Black and people of color) in leadership, will be able to better support and appreciate our racial and ethnic differences, and learn how being an ally can support our diversity.
Our CEO signed the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Pledge with a focus on four commitments: Open Dialogue, Implicit Bias Training, Information Sharing and Developing D&I Plans.
We regularly educate our leaders and equip them with the knowledge to be champions of equality, diversity, and inclusion.
We have invested in a strategic partnership with Billie Jean King Enterprises to aide in our EDI journey. This partnership has inspired and driven us to explore beneficial partnerships with like-minded organizations to further demonstrate our commitment towards equality, diversity, and inclusion.
