2021-2022 Annual Report: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Aristotle1 formed the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Council to actively listen to employees, promote DEI awareness, measure and monitor the firm’s DEI progress, and spearhead initiatives to promote social justice and mobility in our communities.
Over the last year, the DEI Council has focused on increasing employee engagement, diversity awareness and community outreach. We are pleased to report that several employee volunteers worked alongside the Council to plan events, produce educational content, develop the firm’s first Employee Resource Group (ERG), contribute to fundraising initiatives and donate their time toward community outreach programs.
Additionally, employees across the firm continue to participate in various training sessions and webinars. We believe in the importance of self-teaching around DEI and remain committed to continuing to make educational resources available to all employees.
Our accomplishments over the last year can be attributed to the participation of our employees and our dedication to ensuring that Aristotle is a workplace where every employee feels welcomed, respected, supported and valued.
Going forward, we remain committed to:
- Fostering an inclusive culture
- Encouraging employee involvement
- Improving reporting and measurable metrics
- Promoting continual community outreach
- Supporting recruiting and retention efforts
- Continuing to supply DEI resources
