Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
PRIDE Industries was founded in the belief that each person deserves care and recognition for their unique abilities, needs, and contributions. We believe that all people have talent, and that when people of all abilities know they are respected and have an opportunity to contribute, they can reach their full potential. We are passionate about building and sustaining a safe, diverse, and equitable workplace for all employees.
Our people drive PRIDE Industries’ diversity and inclusion initiatives. Below are some initiatives that bring our culture to life.
Our DAC’s mission is to advise and provide recommendations to PRIDE Industries’ Senior Executive Team to help plan, develop, implement, improve, and refine strategies toward meaningful diversity and inclusion efforts and initiatives related to all employees.
ERGs foster awareness, respect, and inclusion within PRIDE Industries. They support business initiatives and act as a collective voice around shared issues or concerns, promoting an inclusive, respectful workplace, and finding topics specific to a diverse community’s needs within the organization. Our ERGs are important for providing employee opportunities for development, education, training, recruitment, retention, business outreach, and development.
