Eastridge Workforce Solutions holds an enduring commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) initiatives and advancement. Like Eastridge, many organizations are investing in advancing diversity efforts within the workplace. Building a successful DE&I program requires extensive education, strategies, commitment, and community involvement.
It’s more critical than ever that organizations revisit their DE&I initiatives and provide the best workplace experience for their employees and communities. Exemplifying true diversity will allow every company to deliver their best.
In this blog, we review how Eastridge is advancing diversity in the workplace, our recent DE&I initiatives, and our goals for inspiring widespread change both now and in the years to come.
Educating for Widespread Diversity
To help companies conduct open, honest, and meaningful discussions around DE&I, Eastridge put together a diversity, equity, and inclusion webinar program, joined by DE&I experts and leaders May Snowden, Glenn Williams, Amber Gardina-Quintanilla, and Sarah Hassaine.
Additionally, we’ve developed DE&I resources for our clients, colleagues, and community:
