D&I, and Being Greater than the Sum of Our Parts
We are super pleased to share our big little D&I Deck; an unashamedly long repository of things we do and offer for diversity and inclusion here at Impala. (And a repository which we will continue to add to!)
We place a huge emphasis on diversity and inclusion at Impala because we honestly believe that, as a company, we can legitimately help change systemic and endemic societal problems.
We’re greater than the sum of our parts, and we need to leverage that. We want to share our D&I Deck so that companies can be prompted to advocate and address the topic.
This is a huge challenge. One which cannot be overcome overnight.
But we understand and embrace the fact that it has to start somewhere and that as a company we’re greater than the sum of our parts. Therefore, as a company, we are in a position to take the grassroots step.
Basically, we’re in this for the long haul.
In that same vein, we reject a traditional ‘business’ mindset to addressing D&I.
We don’t assign it to typical business tropes such as ‘ROI’ or ‘Sustainability’, ‘Project’ or ‘KPI’.
This is about real human experience, which is worth much, MUCH more than all that.
