Dave Blaida Signs Diversity and Inclusion CEO Pledge
May 14, 2021
On April 21, 2021 Dave Blaida joined over 2,000 organizations in signing the CEO Action Pledge.
CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™ is the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion within the workplace. This commitment is driven by a realization that addressing diversity and inclusion is not a competitive issue, but a societal issue that CEOs can play a critical role in addressing. As a unique collaborative of nearly 2,000 CEOs of the world’s leading companies and organizations, we have agreed to take action to cultivate workplace environments where diverse experiences and perspectives are welcomed and where employees feel comfortable and empowered to discuss diversity and inclusion. All the signatories of this commitment are leaders of their companies who agree to implement the pledge within their respective workplaces and to support other companies in doing the same.
Each signatory has agreed to the following actions:
- Continue to cultivate workplaces that support open dialogue on complex, and sometimes difficult, conversations about diversity and inclusion.
- Implement and expand unconscious bias education.
- Share best known—and unsuccessful—actions.
- Create and share strategic inclusion and diversity plans with senior management and employees
