While it is true that a strong supplier diversity program is the right thing to do, investing in a commitment to source minority-owned suppliers is the most profitable thing to do.

Only an inclusive outlook
can drive a global business successfully.

Diversity matters because we live an increasingly globalized world that had become deeply interconnected. In fact, multiple studies suggest that a company’s business performance is directly proportional to the level of diversity in its ranks. Deegit, through its diverse leadership, can help you build a robust talent pipeline: attracting, developing, mentoring, sponsoring, and retaining the next generations of global leaders at all levels of your organization.

At Deegit, we perceive differences in culture, perspectives and outlook, as strengths. We believe people become extraordinary only when they celebrate and pursue that which makes them unique. Therefore we seek out diversity not only in the form of gender, culture, inclinations and ethnicity, but even in the form of thought. After all, diverse thinkers help guard against groupthink, bring fresh perspective, and gather deeper insights than what a homogenous team of workers would.

To achieve such high levels of diversity we are committed towards:

  • Identifying and addressing systemic barriers embedded within policies, practices, programs and services that unintentionally exclude individuals or whole communities.
  • Implementing strategies that will cultivate public and private partnerships in high demand industries and at-risk communities.
  • Exhorting our partners and donors to support us in our cause.

Gender diverse companies and ethnically diverse companies are likely to outperform national industry median by 15% and 35% respectively.

Why Diversity Matters

A single diversity program to cover all demographic groups: racial/ethnic, gender, LGBTQ, and disabilities, is insufficient. Programs must be evidenced based efforts that are relevant to the business and measures progress.
