Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Change starts with a growth mindset.

Our Approach

Learn, Unlearn and Relearn

We learn every day from the day we are born. As kids, much of what we learn is belief—what we think is true. As adults, we naturally get trapped in these beliefs such that it's difficult to see another perspective. As corporate citizens, our collective potential suffers.

The goal of our DEI program is to help us systematically challenge what we think we know. It fosters a mindset of curiosity and growth by highlighting unconscious bias, exposing different views and encouraging courageous conversations.

Learn

more about ourselves and each other

Unlearn

beliefs and bias holding us back

Relearn

the behaviors and actions most likely to move our business forward

DEI Reinforcing Change
Our Focus

Reinforcing Change

DEI is an ongoing journey. And there is much to do to nurture a healthy, high-performing culture. To continue this critical work, our corporate focus centers on—employee engagement, talent development and community partnerships.

Our Business Resource Groups

Diverse Perspectives

From training to company-wide discussions, social responsibility has risen to the top. That includes employee-led business resource groups—comprised of individuals who share common characteristics or experiences, along with their allies. These nurture an inclusive workplace through open dialogue and facilitating learnings for everyone.
