PORTLAND, Ore. (May 24, 2023) – InsideTrack has received Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Workplace™ Certification from Diversity for Social Impact, a strategic professional and organization development company dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion to drive social impact worldwide. The Diversity Equity Inclusion Workplace™ Certification assesses organizations against a set of rigorous standards and signifies that recipients have created and sustained a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace culture. This recognition signals a continued prioritization of DEI efforts at InsideTrack.
“At InsideTrack, we are focused on equitable social mobility, and this means we must focus our efforts both internally and externally. This certification is a welcome acknowledgement of the work already done and a reminder to continue to improve our practices so we ensure a diverse and inclusive work experience for our employees,” says Ruth Bauer White, president of InsideTrack.
The certification’s audit process applies expertise in psychology, organizational development and social justice to assess quantitative diversity and inclusion data, as well as the results from an independent survey of employee DEI perceptions and experiences. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Workplace™-certified organizations achieve a benchmark score that surpasses at least 70 percent of audited peers.
Allison Musvosvi, DEI manager & HR business partner at InsideTrack says, “Our DEI work originates from both painful experiences and the hope for a just and inclusive workplace that our team members share. We stand today on the experiences of people whose involuntary sacrifice has led to the progress and freedoms we are now afforded. To me, this award is an aspiration of where we hope to be and a public declaration of our commitment to addressing the gaps.”
The Diversity Equity Inclusion Workplace™ Certification serves as a catalyst for organizations who meet the benchmark to continue their DEI journey by opening doors to additional training and resources, providing a recognized employer brand for attracting top talent, and boosting employee engagement and retention. The certification is eligible for renewal every two years.
