OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION

We are committed to fostering a positive environment for all of our employee-owners, clients, partners and agency friends as we produce bold, award-winning work for our clients. As part of this commitment, Hirons prioritizes diversity, equity and inclusion efforts across the agency.

To best represent our diverse range of clients, and to support our team members and push our industry as a whole moving forward, we empower our team to bring their unique experiences, perspectives and cultural backgrounds to their work every day.

Our commitment to diversity includes but is not limited to respect for race, ethnicity, color, nationality, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, socioeconomic class, religion, disability status, age, military status, political ideology, economic status, geographic location and language/linguistic ability.

Hirons exemplifies our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion by:

  1. Making decisions – be it everyday choices or long-term strategies – that foster a culture of inclusivity.
  2. Prioritizing diversity, equity and inclusion as one of the elements in our agency’s strategic planning process.
  3. Learning from our team members’ unique experiences to help us grow as individuals and as professionals.
  4. Partnering with and supporting certified women-, disability-, minority- and veteran-owned enterprises.
  5. Working with other organizations that are committed to diversity, equity and inclusion.
  6. Partnering with community organizations and thought leaders to provide educational programming and professional development opportunities for our team members.
  7. Serving clients across a diverse range of sectors, organizational structures and missions.
  8. Evaluating our company’s performance on diversity and inclusion efforts, including in our relationships with partners, clients and staff, on a routine basis.
  9. Ensuring all recruiting, onboarding and retention processes are equitable and inclusive.
  10. Recruiting, mentoring and empowering diverse employee-owners to take on leadership roles within the agency.
  11. Prioritizing the mental and physical well-being of our team members.

While these actions represent overarching goals for the agency, this list is non-exhaustive. We understand dialogue surrounding diversity, equity and inclusion is ever evolving, and so are we.
