Our employees comprise many beliefs and cultures, and we are built on a set of strong principles including respect. Since our inception we have valued Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). Through our partnership with Billie Jean King Enterprises, we proactively discuss and navigate the themes of DEI.
DEI is a continuous journey that involves all our stakeholders, and most importantly, our employees. We will never stop learning from our stakeholders and are excited about driving progress with their support, in both our firm and the communities with which we engage. We periodically conduct culture assessments to learn from our employees, understand their experiences within our company and in their communities, and identify focus areas where we can implement initiatives to drive progress.
Our leadership signed the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion pledge with a focus on four components: creating an environment for open dialogue, conducting implicit bias training, sharing best practices and lessons learned, and developing dedicated diversity recruiting strategies. We support the SEO Careers program by providing internships to talented undergraduates from underrepresented and underserved communities and we’re actively working with our team to understand how we can support their community efforts that drive a more inclusive future.
We know that our success depends on our people. We are committed to developing a diverse and inclusive workforce that will help us become more innovative and successful.
