Creating a Culture of Equity and Inclusivity
The Glitterati understands that to build an equitable, inclusive, diverse workplace, we must put forth measures that facilitate the retention of team members with diverse backgrounds. To that end, we promise to:
Host regular required [quarterly/semi-annual/annual] implicit bias, bias interrupter, and workplace inclusiveness training for all of our leadership; and
Actively encourage the wellbeing and mindfulness of our team, including diverse leadership, whose particular experiences may warrant the provision of individualized support. This commitment includes providing reasonable accommodations as needed.
Inclusion & Belonging Guiding Principles
We believe that by investing in an inclusive culture, we will attract the best and brightest talent, leading to more innovative solutions for our valued clients. Building and sustaining an inclusive and diverse culture is essential for business success, and it is the right thing to do. This is who we are:
We believe in an inclusive work environment where employees are welcomed, valued, respected, and heard.
We believe that employees will be provided a safe work environment.
We believe that diversity brings strength.
We believe in equality of opportunity free from discrimination.
We believe in hiring and promoting the most qualified candidate.
We believe in employee development at all levels of the organization.
We believe in the power of belonging as an integral component in achieving diversity & inclusion and business success.
Commitment to Continued Progress on Diversity & Inclusion Matters
We will continue to make our workplaces trusting places to have complex, and sometimes difficult, conversations about diversity and inclusion: We will create and maintain environments, platforms, and forums where our people feel comfortable reaching out to their colleagues to gain greater awareness of each other’s experiences and perspectives. By encouraging an ongoing dialogue and not tolerating any incongruence with these values of openness, we are building trust, encouraging compassion and open-mindedness, and reinforcing our commitment to a culture of inclusivity.
We will implement and expand unconscious bias education: We all have unconscious biases — that is human nature. Unconscious bias education enables individuals to begin recognizing, acknowledging, and therefore minimizing any potential blind spots he or she might have, but wasn’t aware of previously. We will commit to rolling out and/or expanding unconscious bias education within our companies in the form that best fits our specific culture and business. By helping our employees recognize and minimize their blind spots, we aim to facilitate more open and honest conversations.
We will create a workplace environment that reflects a healthy disposition toward difference, by:
Providing ongoing and relevant training on how to exhibit and encourage behavior that exemplifies our values of civility and respect;
Establishing and promoting workplace culture expectations that all employees and visiting guests are made aware of and make commitments to follow; and
Motivating and empowering employees to take responsibility for their actions and to help positively influence the behavior and civility of their fellow employees;
Sharing and implementing methods on how to best create a culture of accountability and respect when it comes to issues of diversity and inclusivity.
