We believe our differences make us better, together
At Global Partners we are passionate about bringing fresh, new-to-market ideas to our industries, and amplifying new voices in our workplace. From providing access to information for all employees through our DEI-- Better Together hub on our GlobalOne app, to our Employee Resource Groups, to celebrating all of our people, including those from marginalized and racialized communities, we are dedicated to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. One of our primary values is "We believe our differences make us better, together." and we aim to embody that. We know that we have our work to do, and we are rolling up our sleeves to get it done. We created an initial DEI strategy to get us moving in the right direction. It's focused on 4 pillars that we believe will make a significant difference for us:
Our Employees DEI Education Increasing Representation at all levels of Global Partners Procedure Review & Creation
What do those words, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion mean to us at Global Partners?
Who we are... The different people who make up, could make up, Global Partners employees, customers, and suppliers.
Fairness and Justice. We have policies and procedures in place that promote fairness and justice for all.
The outcome of everyone feeling welcome and valued, regardless of dimensions of diversity. We respect everyone/s voice.
The goal of our DEI work is to foster a sense of belonging for our employees. We want to create an environment where people feel safe to bring their full selves to work, to use their voices, and share ideas, making us a better Global Partners. We know we can do that with hard work, difficult conversations, and commitment to doing the right thing. We use education, accountability measures, and tools to work past our biases, and embrace differences.
