Diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB)

We’re creating an inclusive culture where people from diverse backgrounds share bold ideas, feel valued for their contributions, and realize their full potential.

Our executives stand with our Cornerstars

At Cornerstone, we ACHIEVE TOGETHER. We intentionally drive our diversity equity and inclusion efforts beyond recruiting and work to ensure our practices, programs, and conversations create a place of belonging. We aim to reach beyond our company through continuous efforts to educate the world, while inspiring leaders to make lasting and impactful change that reaches into our communities, even if that is with just one employee or one client at a time.

See how Cornerstars become their best selves in and outside of work

We’re always learning and having conversations – especially on diversity topics – so we can grow into better people and coworkers. Come join the conversation!

Cornerstars learn from each other

Every quarter Cornerstone designates a full day for Cornerstars to develop themselves. We call it “Development Day.” The sessions are taught by Cornerstars, and the topics can be anything. We’ve done everything – from “how to make kombucha” to “understanding blockchain!”

Cornerstars give back

Cornerstars are encouraged to experiment and create new ways to give back to the community, blending passion and work. Some of the most innovative programs include Cornerstone Cares, Disasterready.org, Non-profitready.org, and Workforceready.org.

Cornerstars achieve together

Cornerstars achieve together

We enable any Cornerstar to create a Cornerstar Resource Group (CRG). CRGs help identify gaps in our DEIB practices, and partner with the business to create inclusive solutions. They receive an official budget and can affect real change as advocates for DEIB.

Our promise

While our diversity stats show we’ve made significant improvements over the years, and that we are ahead of many of our peers, we know it’s no reason to celebrate. We're not where we should be nor where we want to be. We know we can do better, and we will. True to our mission, we're always learning – and our promise to all Cornerstars is that we'll never stop.
