Action for Equity Collective
We are creating an inclusive culture that promotes and values diversity and treats everyone equitably, whomever they are wherever they are.
We are creating an inclusive culture that promotes and values diversity and treats everyone equitably, whomever they are wherever they are. Creating an environment where everyone, from any background, can do their best work is the right thing to do.
We are a Collective, because we recognize that it is the responsibility of all the members of our company, to educate themselves, become allies with, and take concrete steps together with all members of the company to ensure we progress towards a more diverse and inclusive organization.
Our three cornerstones are:
Diversity, which includes any dimension used to differentiate groups and people from one another. Diversity in the workplace, focuses on respecting and appreciating what makes employees different in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, education, and national origin.
Inclusion are the steps taken by our organization to make employees of all backgrounds feel welcomed, and equally treated. Inclusive organizational culture makes people feel respected and valued for who they are as an individual or group.
Equity includes elimination of policies, practices, attitudes and cultural messages that reinforce differential outcomes or fail to eliminate them. We will hold ourselves accountable to be transparent and honest.
We will focus on making positive incremental steps forward, not just dialogues but tangible action towards greater diversity, inclusivity and equity through our four workstreams: Policy, Education, Communication, Engagement.
