Impact through Inclusion

We are strongly committed to the value of diverse perspectives, an inclusive culture and treating all employees with dignity and respect.

Our focus on equity, equality, diversity & inclusion enables us to continue growing

When it comes to embracing equity, equality, diversity and inclusion (EEDI), we are strongly committed to the value of diverse perspectives, an inclusive culture and treating everyone with dignity and respect.

Our actions speak for themselves

We are proud of the external recognitions we’ve received as a top employer, the impact our Employee Resource Groups are making and our commitment to building and supporting a diverse, high-performing workforce highlighted in our ESG Action Report.

Our CEO Richard Gonzalez signed the  CEO Action pledge  to continue to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace. We also joined  Paradigm for Parity®   focused on ensuring gender parity at the senior leadership level and signed the Business Coalition for the Equality Act to address workplace fairness for LGBTQIA+ employees.
