Kaiser Consulting honored as a 2022 Best Place to Work in Central Ohio! We graciously accept this prestigious award for the 7th time.
Being deeply moved and motivated by the pervasive racial unrest recently witnessed in communities throughout the United States and within our local community, Kaiser Consulting announces our firm’s Advocacy + Inclusion Initiative.
As we contemplate and confront issues that will move us towards a more just future, we strive to eliminate inequities tied to diversity within society and transform the status quo for underrepresented individuals into meaningful action and sustainable change.
We are steadfastly committed to implementing immediate, near-term, and long-term steps to achieve a strong diversity, advocacy and inclusion program within our firm and lasting change in the communities we serve. We believe taking consistent and actionable steps in the right direction will help us achieve our goals.
Our journey began in mid-2020 when we joined local Columbus (Ohio) business leaders to publicly raise awareness about racial injustice by acknowledging that persistent and systemic racism exists and committing to promote solutions to eradicate inequities.
Simultaneously, we formed an internal five-person committee comprised of shareholders and employees volunteering their time and talent to focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion issues.
Meeting weekly, the committee began defining initiatives in support of our firm’s commitment, steering tasks to be performed, and communicating progress to our team members. The committee evolved into the Advocacy + Inclusion Committee with a mission of focusing on three core areas to strengthen Kaiser Consulting’s social responsibility of eradicating racial inequities:
Our firm's initial focus would be on the structural racism experienced by Black Americans in the United States. In the Fall of 2020, the A+I Committee held three educational sessions for all team members to learn more about the structural racism Black Americans have historically faced and still encounter today.
While Kaiser Consulting's initial focus is on raising awareness and eliminating racial injustice for Black Americans, we support racial justice for all. As such, our A+I Committee has recently undertaken the following internal and external activities to encourage our team members, as well as community members, to lead lives of reflection, kindness, and enlightened action:
At Kaiser Consulting, we are committed to strengthening our culture of diversity, advocacy and inclusion through education, recruiting, and service opportunities. We encourage and value the diversity of thought, courageous communication, and honest dialogue as we move towards achieving a more just future for all.
