We put people first with our commitment to build a company-wide culture where diversity, equity, and inclusion are fundamental values in the everyday business practices throughout our family of companies. We envision a workplace that is diverse and welcoming to all individuals that is supported by a framework demonstrating our commitment to these values through words and actions.
Our efforts are founded on engaging employees, listening, and learning. Through one-on-one listening sessions with individuals representing the diversity of our workforce and an all-employee culture survey, the perceptions we gather guide the ongoing conversations and training necessary to help break down biases and ensure that every employee feels a genuine sense of belonging. To champion these actions, a Diversity Council is in development for the purpose of soliciting this feedback and prioritizing our focus of DEI activities and communications.
Giving employees support structures and opportunities to connect is essential. We have begun building the infrastructure for employee groups such as Black, Hispanic, and Women in leadership networks that are representative of our workforce and intended to help support personal and professional goals. We also launched an enterprise mobile app and web-based platform that allows all employees to connect with company news, information, and each other, while giving leaders an opportunity to listen and engage in a modern and welcoming format.
