Diversity as a means to Being a Better You.
Platitudes are Cheap. We’ve all heard companies and individuals say they’re committed to diversity and tolerance without ever getting specific, so here’s our stance on it:
We welcome you.
We welcome people – employees, customers and community members – of any gender, race, age, ethnicity, size, nationality, sexual orientation, religion, culture, subculture, and political opinion. We welcome the ordinary and extraordinary and everyone in between. We believe in being inclusive, welcoming, and supportive of anyone who comes to us in good faith.
We believe it’s not only possible but also beneficial for people of all backgrounds, viewpoints and persuasions to come together and build meaningful relationships – personal, professional or both. We believe in the broad spectrum of human experience. We believe that amazing things can happen when people from different backgrounds and experiences engage each other in conversation and commerce.
We won’t speak of or treat anyone as something less because they may not be just like us but rather we’ll work to understand, accept and hopefully embrace our differences.
We get excited about creativity, individualism, professionalism and personal betterment. We support freedom of creative and professional expression, within the few restrictions we need to keep our services viable and lawful. We are obliged to follow certain laws and industry regulations but to us it is more a matter of personal commitment than compliance.
We have enough experience to know that we may not get any of this perfect on the first try. But we have enough hope, energy, and idealism to want to learn things we don’t know now. We may not be able to satisfy everyone, but we can certainly work to avoid offending anyone. And we promise that if we get it wrong, we’ll listen carefully and respectfully and we’ll do our best to make good on our mistakes.
Come work with us, and dream with us.
