Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Last year we took the first step of advancing the diversity, equity, and inclusion of the Worldnet workforce by holding roundtable discussions with our employees. From these discussions we identified areas that needed improvement and developed unique goals we would work towards. We are proud to announce that since the start of our commitment we have accomplished the following:

  • Developed several internal initiatives that allow us to identify and address blind spots.
  • Partnered with organizations such as the Black in Fashion Council (BIFC) to provide resources to assist them in their mission to create systemic changes for a more inclusive environment.
  • Created an open and safe space to receive and resolve employee feedback.
  • DE&I Presentations: Dr. Yohuru Williams & Dr. Michele Gregory.
  • Developed action plans based on suggestions from roundtable conversations.
  • Transparent job posting process.
  • Developed Summer Internship program for local high school juniors.
  • Juneteenth – company holiday starting in 2021 – an opportunity to reflect.
  • We partnered with CEO Act!on for Diversity & Inclusion, the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion within the workplace. We pledge to ACT ON supporting more inclusiveness in the workplace.
  • While this is simply the beginning of our continued efforts, we are excited to be a part of the change for a more inclusive, equitable, and diverse society.

    As we continue to work on our commitments to further advance the diversity, equity and inclusion of our workforce we want to make mention of how important it is to provide a safe and communicative environment to accomplish our goals. We recognize that some of these conversations can be challenging however it is through the efforts of our team members that we work together and hold ourselves accountable. We are doing what it takes to see the change we want for ourselves and those around us.
