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 realise their full potential.
“It’s time to be bold, challenge the status quo, and inspire change! As Cornerstone’s Chief Diversity Officer, I am committed to enhancing our inclusive culture, improving the diversity of our workforce at all levels of the organisation, building content that support our clients with their DEIB goals, and promoting change in society by investing in our communities.”
Duane La Bom
Chief Diversity Officer
We’re always learning and having conversations – especially on diversity topics – so we can grow into better people and coworkers. Come join the conversation!
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 are encouraged to experiment and create new ways to give back to the community, blending passion and work. Some of the most innovative programmes include Cornerstone Cares, Disasterready.org, Non-profitready.org and Workforceready.org.
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.
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.
