DEI

DIVERSITY, EQUITY, INCLUSION (DEI)

OUR DEI STATEMENT

Vivacity is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in order to create an environment of excellence. 

We acknowledge and embrace that success can only be achieved through finding and highlighting diverse voices, talents, and experiences into our company. Our goal is to empower our employees to learn, to develop and maintain spaces where all feel safe to be who they are, and to create a culture of belonging where our employees can thrive. Through continued investment in these goals, we can best serve our customers, partners, and communities.

"DEI IS THE CORNERSTONE WHERE TALENTS FLOURISH"

MESSAGE FROM THE CEO

Our DEI initiative is set to achieve two main goals; first that we're bringing in the highest talent to drive our mission - which only comes from recruiting across the widest possible people spectrum. This also ensures that we're pulling from diversity in thought and world-views which naturally mimics the communities and orgs that our business seeks to impact. The second aspect of our DEI initiative is that the people we bring in feel not only safety and comfort in who they are as an individual but also being fully supported and propelled along their path of personal & professional achievement. It's in this fashion that we believe we will make the greatest possible impact, and as a Public Benefit Corporation, we hope for nothing more. Stay Vivacious.

EMPLOYEE AFFINITY GROUPS

Vivacity’s Employee Affinity Groups are spaces where employees can celebrate their identities in community with one another. Our groups meet with leadership, lead social hours, host education events, and use the space to process current events with one another.

DEI EDUCATION

Through a multi-faceted, multi-platform approach, our education initiatives center around three main categories: Action, Awareness, Accountability. Through these three categories, we provide education resources, development opportunities and knowledge progression through a variety of learning processes. We have company-wide initiatives, leadership-specific topics, and cultural competency trainings in alignment with current events.

ASSESSMENTS AND FEEDBACK SESSIONS

Because of the success of our latest annual DEI Analysis, it is important to give everyone at the company a chance to weigh in on how we can continue to create the company environment we strive for.

We know diversity stimulates innovation. We know when we create a workplace that fosters inclusion, we maximize the performance of our teams. That’s why our ultimate goal at Vivacity is to be a place where all employees feel safe to be who they are.

Vice President of People | Vivacity Tech

Giving Back is at the core of our belief system and the reason why we chose to incorporate Vivacity as a PBC. Our desire is to see marginalized youth in all of our communities thriving inside and outside of the classroom. We accomplish this by partnering with amazing organizations and schools who care for the whole person as well as our amazing employees who use their volunteer PTO investing in local youth programs.
