Creating Positive Change to Build a more Diverse, Just, and Inclusive Team
We understand that in addition to fostering a culture of diversity and inclusion, we must take direct action against systemic racism.
Shaw Contract’s mission is to provide insights and solutions to enable people to use their power for positive change. All across the globe, we have seen people using their power to change systems that perpetuate racial violence and injustice. Bias can run deep and we must unlearn racism as individuals and institutions.
We feel a sense of urgency for us to make an impact on our organization and are taking steps to make Shaw Contract a more diverse, just, and inclusive organization. These responsive actions include greater visibility and engagement with our Associate Resource Groups supporting our Latino, LGBTQ+, Women, and Black employees, expanding our unconscious bias training, implementing changes in our recruiting process, and creating a diversity leadership board of employees and clients. The diversity leadership board will provide input on our policies, communication, and recruiting practices for unintended bias and to make sure Shaw Contract is a proactive agent for positive change.
