Diversity, Equity & Inclusivity Statement
It takes Diversity of Thought, Culture and Perspective to Truly Shape Thought. Philosophy’s vision is Great Work, Great Lives. For that vision to be fully expressed, our work and business lives must celebrate everyone — and we mean everyone.
At Philosophy, we believe everyone has a gift, and it is the sum of those gifts that allows our company to succeed. As a company, we feel it is our employees’ responsibility to bring their gifts to the work we do and for Philosophy to provide an inclusive environment where everyone’s gifts can shine. We celebrate the gifts our employees bring to the company by proudly displaying those gifts visually within our office.
By fostering a culture of tolerance and compassion, we encourage all team members to speak up without hesitation or fear. We actively seek different perspectives because we believe everyone’s voice has a place at Philosophy. We work to create an environment where people can safely disagree if they are feeling offended or misunderstood. We use statements like “that is inappropriate” when something makes us feel uncomfortable and express how we feel in the moment so we all gain ease and comfort around each other and share our feelings at the first sign of discomfort.
We assume positive intent of our coworkers: we trust from the outset that they are doing their best with the resources and information they have at hand. From there, we rely on our core value of courage to become curious and ask questions when we have differences of opinion, because we know that creativity comes from diversity of thought. We know that when all employees are encouraged to speak up they will create the type of company they want to work for. We use Emergentics as a tool to foster cognitive diversity and work to create whole brain groups when working with each other. We look for people whose unique thinking styles can blend with others to create bigger ideas together than each could alone.
To us, diversity, equity & inclusion (DEI) is not a business strategy. It is our culture. We see our employees as leaders in our community and believe we are role models who live by our examples and actions – not by our words. We embody our core value of integrity by representing an inner sense of wholeness and consistency of character, regardless of the circumstance.
We believe that a company that builds great leaders attracts great people with diverse backgrounds, talents, skills, and abilities, so we’ve developed a custom Path to Leadership program that helps shape our employees into leaders within our community. We’ve created an internal Philosophy Experience that provides a framework for our team to become students of our business through continuous improvement and leadership. When adding to our team, we seek people with diverse backgrounds, cultures, perspectives, and experiences to further our leadership in innovation and creativity.
When it comes to Philosophy Communication and DEI, we embrace each person’s gifts, respect all voices, actively seek out differences, and lead by example.
