The Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Committee is a group of volunteers within Miovision working to build an inclusive culture that attracts and supports diversity. Making Miovision welcoming to a diverse employee base isn't just the right thing to do, it's also good for business. According to McKinsey & Company, "companies in the top quartile for gender or racial and ethnic diversity are more likely to have financial returns above their national industry medians." Attracting and welcoming people from diverse backgrounds, with different experiences and points-of-view makes for a better performing company.
The Committee aims to support Miovision's D&I efforts by:
Building awareness and understanding: help everyone at Miovision understand the importance of D&I and, more importantly, empowering them to create positive change.
Creating psychological safety in the workplace: we want Miovision to be a place where everyone feels valued and where all can share their different perspectives openly.
Attracting more diverse talent: finding ways to showcase the workplace we're creating to attract divers perspectives and talent to Miovision.
Women at Miovision: building a community of women at Miovision to foster a supportive and motivating work environment.
The committee is focusing on activities this year around three key themes:
Diversio Implementation - Benchmark engagement and inclusion with data driven analytics and targets through quarterly surveys to the company
Training & Education - Launch unconscious Bias training company wide / maintain consistency and promotion of D&I resource Library
Mental Health - The 2021 focus for Miovision's charitable giving charter will be on Mental Health
In Miovision’s Employee D&I Resource Library you will find a variety of different resources, primarily pertaining to current social issues or topics of Diversity and Inclusion (listed below), submitted for Miovision employees, by Miovision employees.
