Our focus on Equity, Equality, Diversity & Inclusion enables us to continue growing

When it comes to embracing equity, equality diversity and inclusion (EED&I), 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. 

At the same time, we are constantly striving to raise the bar. Here are some the of ways:

  • 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.
  • To instill and enhance an inclusive mindset in all leaders and employees, we prioritized education across the company by launching a virtual inclusion-focused learning series. So far, thousands of our employees and people leaders have taken it – and more are doing so each week.

We’ve taken meaningful action on the issues of racial equality and social justice. This includes:

  • An external statement and commitment to racial justice
  • A $5 million donation to NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and the Equal Justice Initiative to address issues in our criminal justice system
  • A commitment of $50 million over five years to nonprofit partners focused on promoting health and education equity among underserved Black communities
  • The creation of two senior level positions – including a Chief Equity Officer position – that sit on the external leadership team to drive internal and external change
