BlueGrace developed our Diversity and Inclusion initiative in 2020. This included multiple trainings made available to our employees both via LinkedIn and internal content as well as BlueGrace’s first diversity and inclusion council, among other components. Our goal with this initiative is to create a more educated and inclusive culture that celebrates all of our employees, customers and partners.
BlueGrace’s D&I council is a group of employees that partners with our leadership team to develop and drive the D&I initiatives. It serves as a sounding board for the CEO and a voice for the employees in all diversity & inclusion related scenarios.
business resource groups
BlueGrace Business Resource Groups (or BRG’s) serve as a source of growth, development, and solace for our employees. Each group has their own leadership structure and contributes to the inclusive and diverse culture we strive to build at BlueGrace.
This emblem represents the holder’s efforts to understand the importance of diversity and inclusion not only in the workplace but in their own lives. Discussing topics such as unconscious bias and building an inclusive culture, our employees who are certified took the time to learn and complete an assessment to acquire this certification. Each NewGracer also receives this training and acquires this certification in their first few months of employment.
what do our employees think?
After our first LinkedIn training for Juneteenth, we rolled out a custom built, in-depth DIBS company wide training for all employees.
