Inclusion, Diversity & Equity
How we’re building a space where everyone belongs, where Builders feel seen, heard, respected, and valued.
Diversity of thought, diversity of background, diversity of lived experience. We value the uniqueness of every individual, and actively encourage, respect, and celebrate different perspectives. It’s how we live our core value Celebrate Authenticity.
What we’re doing
Ours is a culture fueled by creativity, innovation, and teamwork. We believe that a team can only be effective when it has diversity of capabilities, experiences, ideas, and opinions. We strive to uphold this commitment every day.
Widen the circle
We offer employee and client trainings and groups that help us expand our minds, sharpen our perceptions, and make our circle of inclusion even wider.
ID&E Leadership Team
This team helps oversee our ID&E practices, set strategic direction, and prioritize our actions into workable initiatives and projects—including reporting and analytics, community partnerships, and enhancing our education program.
Recruit a better future
We’re significantly expanding the channels where we find Builders today in an effort to find candidates that represent the rich diversity of our communities, partners, and clients.
Build Dialogue Series
We all get better at this by communicating in a candid, direct manner in a space where Builders feel safe to speak honestly about their lived experiences. It’s a powerful, necessary experience.
Promotion readiness coaching
People show readiness differently, and it’s rarely an if/then process. We’ve developed rigor around identifying divergent strengths that can be cultivated to grow the Build leaders of tomorrow. Mentorship and sponsorship programs are just who we are and part of our culture.
Every Build location has a leader dedicated to ID&E. They’re responsible for ensuring our efforts seamlessly incorporate into day-to-day operations, facilitation of feedback and updating the center on progress in monthly Town Hall meetings.
Employee Resource Groups
Safe. Secure. Supported. Employee Resource Groups provide a warm, welcoming place to connect and share experiences and perspectives to help Builders live their truth.

I was interviewing someone last week who said “in my 30-year career, you are the first company who's ever explicitly mentioned ID&E in an interview, and I appreciate that. That sets you miles above.”

Action not promises
At Slalom, we're committed to justice, humanity, and equality. In June 2020, our CEO Brad Jackson outlined our stance against racism and introduced seven committed actions to drive profound and lasting change. Now we're tracking our progress.
