Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) are foundations of building a strong company culture. The resources below will provide you with actionable next steps to prioritize DE&I efforts at your organization.
- Implementing Social Change with Volunteers- Volunteers are dedicated and passionate about our organizations' missions when it comes to social change and new procedures we cannot leave them out of the conversation. In this module you will learn how to implement progressive social changes, ideas and protocols in animal welfare with your volunteer program.
- Culture Initiatives- In this playbook, we cover what culture is, why you should care deeply about it, and how to implement a culture initiative that can maximize your employees’ contributions while making each one feel exactly what they are: a unique and valued part of the team. Company culture is one of those topics that can seem elusive and hard to measure. Many associate culture with break rooms filled with video games and beanbag chairs or complimentary cafeterias and coffee bars. While all of that may sound awesome, it’s not what culture is about. Culture is how we talk to and treat one another, it’s how we plan and make decisions, it’s how we do what we do.
- Staff Recruitment and Retention- The topic of employee recruitment and retention may seem complicated, but it's really quite simple. It starts with identifying and cultivating the culture of your organization. In today's marketplace, much of the workforce prioritizes culture and values above all. It is imperative that your organization embodies its proclaimed culture and values in the work that’s done each day. Remember, actions speak louder than words. Making culture a priority and ensuring that your values are put into practice will attract the right people to your organization and allow your staff to feel comfortable in and proud of the work that they do.
