At Archbright, we see diversity as everything that makes an employee who they are and we want all employees to be comfortable bringing their entire selves to work every day. We believe our individual backgrounds, perspectives, and passions help us grow and solve problems that move us all forward. We encourage and support both positive and learning interactions through workforce diversity that will help all employees feel comfortable encountering individuals with different life experiences.
We define diversity as the characteristics and attributes that make each one of us unique. Diversity has many dimensions, that may include, but are not limited to, ethnicity, national origin, nationality, religion, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identification, and age. Even more broadly, diversity includes geographic location, work experience, family status, socio-economic class, and diversity of political thought. Our goal is to leverage the varied experiences and ideas that each individual brings for the good of the organization overall.
We also recognize that diversity is a cultural ethos – a way of thinking or acting that fosters inclusion and enhances our work lives and the quality of life in our communities. By embracing a culture of diversity, our programs and initiatives will consider whether it reflects our community and provides opportunities for those who are underrepresented in our profession.
There is no fixed endpoint to Archbright’s promotion of diversity and inclusion. We will continue to monitor and adjust our diversity and inclusion strategy as necessary in order to continuously increase employee engagement and ensure that Archbright remains a strong, resilient, and flexible organization going forward.
