We have identified four focus areas through which Choice can meaningfully advance diversity, equity and inclusion within our organization and the broader communities in which we operate and build.
Recruitment, Advancement & Conduct
We are committed to building and preserving a diverse workforce and to providing equity in advancement and compensation at all levels. We set diversity targets and develop and regulate policies to empower all of our colleagues to succeed.
It is our leadership team’s responsibility to stay informed on the challenges surrounding diversity, equity and inclusion, and to pro-actively identify and address barriers within our organization.
Education & Culture
We encourage the exchange of lived experiences amongst our colleagues in order to challenge our individual biases, acknowledge our own privilege, build empathy for one another, promote inclusion and authenticity, and foster meaningful relationships.
We advance this pillar by bringing in keynote speakers, hosting internal panel discussions, celebrating diverse events, and sharing educational material.
Through our Choice Cares program, we support charitable organizations whose mission empowers disadvantaged groups to succeed in the communities in which we operate and build. Each year, a portion of our total funds raised and volunteer hours contributed will go towards advancing their cause.
It is in our DEI roadmap to develop an inclusive procurement strategy as we recognize the importance of identifying and working with vendors that share our values of diversity, equity and inclusion.
