What Diversity and Inclusion means to us:
Improving opportunities from every direction
Simply put, the “opportunity gap” is real. We aim to address that. Our CEO, Andrew Zwerner, along with our Senior Leadership Team have made the commitment to create fair and equitable opportunities for all, while keeping accountability at the forefront. Our goal is to shape a team as diverse as the make-up of those we serve each and every day, at all levels of the business.
Creating an ongoing dialogue
We don’t shy away from tough conversations. In fact, we believe that creating a culture where individuals feel empowered to share their experiences and ideas and take action is key to creating awareness as we learn to look beyond surface-level stereotypes and disrupt unconscious bias.
Paying it forward
Employees are encouraged to disperse into their community to lend their expertise and return to educate their peers on how our actions collectively drive meaningful change, further promoting who we are and who we want to be as we continue to grow.
We’ll be partnering with organizations that:
• Focus on eliminating the “network gap,” specifically within underrepresented populations.
• Foster a passion for mentorship, creativity, innovation, and collaboration.
• Further emphasize how STEAM, entrepreneurship, and leadership skills can transform lives.
Additionally, employee-led community groups will meet on a quarterly basis to organize internal happenings, such as webinars, guest speakers, and company initiatives, understanding that sustainable change extends beyond the workplace.
Keeping it real
We understand there is much work to be done. As we grow and iterate, so will our promise to ensure our company is one where individuals feel respected and heard – a true sense of belonging. This is our commitment to our crew, our community, and to ourselves, and it’s only the beginning for us.
