Shannex is on a learning journey to make our communities more diverse, equitable and inclusive. This important work began over a year and a half ago and continues today.
Since September 2021, senior leaders and people leaders have received training and education on diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging, unconscious bias, anti-Black racism, white privilege, Indigenous insights, teachings on 2SLGBTQIA+ and allyship from our trusted partner, Ashanti Leadership.
In August of 2021, we created a Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging Survey and asked team members for further insight. In February 2022, we shared those results with team members. The results have shown that we have the support of the respondents to continue this important work. However, the results also tell us there’s room for improvement.
We invited team members from across the organization to be a part of the Inclusive Action Committee; a working group of team members who will be actively engaged in directing our work on diversity, inclusion, equity and belonging. The first meeting took place on March 24 and additional committee meetings are planned over the next several months.
We will continue to update you as we continue to make progress on this important work.Arrière
