Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) has been a foundation at Point B since 1995, and we’re continuing on our journey to bring more listening, more understanding and more structure to every part of DEI at our company. We’ve learned that, through action, we can become a place where every person finds opportunity, acceptance and, ultimately, a home to become their true selves.
Point B will not stand for systemic racism, inequity or injustice. Anywhere. We are committed to being and acting for others. We are committed to listening, learning, understanding and taking tangible action to create change.
Our DEI Statement
We exist for the benefit of ALL people.
At Point B, the values behind Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) are essential to lead human-centered transformations. They also enliven the future for our people, customers, and communities. We’re committed to attracting and retaining a diverse workforce—one that reflects the world outside our company. Our people’s varied experiences, skills and backgrounds help us drive innovation and enrich our communities.
Let’s be better every day.
From our Leadership Team to our Board of Directors to our next campus hire, Point B is constantly evolving to have our people see reflections of themselves in our teams and leadership by:
- Ensuring a selection process that seeks and values diversity
- Welcoming and implementing fresh perspectives
- Behaving inclusively, with open, honest reflection of ourselves and our systems
Point B thinks about DEI holistically, with a firm focus in the following areas:
We want our company to represent the places where we work. We have set goals towards increased Black and Hispanic/Latinx, women, disablility and veteran representation among Point B associates, while setting supporting strategies for LGBTQ+ diversity dimensions.
We’re taking tangible steps – including BRG-sponsored professional development opportunities and continuous efforts to make our hiring processes as equitable as possible to increase representation in Point B leadership roles across all diversity dimensions.
Through our CEO Action fellow’s work to further racial equity through public policy and our commitment to pro bono work with social justice organizations and minority-owned business, and board memberships, our teams aim to make a difference in the communities in which we live and work.
Taking a Stand – Inside and Out
In 2020, Point B’s Lauren Wilkins became one of 250, full-time CEO Action for Racial Equity fellows and will help advance racial equity in the communities in which we live and work through public policy and process.
And in 2021, Point B proudly joined over 400 companies to stand with the Human Rights Campaign and sign the Business Coalition for Equality Act in support of the Equality Act, a landmark federal legislation to guarantee non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people and to strengthen our civil rights laws for all Americans.
We are proud to be a participant in the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index, which helps validate the path we are on towards deeper LGBTQ+ education, supportive guidelines and practices within our firm.
The people of Point B have built eight Business Resource Groups to help us move forward on our DEI journey. These resource groups create communities of advocacy for associates and bring forth new ideas and opportunities for learning from and understanding each other. Our current Business Resource Groups include:
