Diversity is all our human differences. Our North American leadership team humbly acknowledges that we have strides to make in our representation of and support for diversity. We believe building and executing a diversity and inclusion-focused strategy will help us take the best possible care of our SWOmies, our customers and our community, and to take our performance as a region to the next level.
We will continually seek out and implement new ways to foster inclusion that build from our core foundation – our culture. Inclusion is described by Gallup as, “a cultural and environmental feeling of belonging”. It is important to us that each SWOmie experiences a sense of respect, safety and belonging here at SoftwareONE. We strive to be a place where our team members’ unique abilities, strengths, hearts and minds are recognized, appreciated and utilized.
We will not allow bias and discrimination to go unaddressed; we recognize that they are detrimental barriers to wellbeing, optimal engagement, and top performance. We will, in line with our passion for learning, provide our people with knowledge, tools, and opportunities that will enable them to actively participate in creating an even more inclusive SoftwareONE. All of this underscores our commitment to making SoftwareONE the best place our people will work over the course of their careers.
We will continually aspire to have many differences represented among our employee base including: abilities, age, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and gender identity and expression. Additionally, after assessing our greater community’s representation within our workforce, we recognize where our largest measurable gaps are. Hand-in-hand with our inclusion efforts, we will move the needle toward closing these gaps over the next four years and beyond. We are confident that we can lessen these gaps while remaining committed to finding the best talent and fit for each role we fill.
