Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
We are committed to fostering a workplace of belonging.
One Patra is for everyone, and we are committed to fostering a workplace of belonging. We believe it is the diverse representation of our workforce that inspires a culture of innovation and creativity at Patra. We strive to be an organization that not only speaks to the value of diversity, equity & inclusion, but acts on it. Our DE&I commitment includes, but is not limited to the following beliefs and practices:
- Provide comprehensive DE&I onboarding & employee training
- Active DE&I council made up of internal stakeholders dedicated to DE&I advocacy & initiatives; as well as ongoing assessment of effectiveness
- Hiring and recruitment practices committed to seeking candidates in underrepresented communities
- Create space and transparency for our employees to provide ongoing feedback and addressing priorities within our DE&I functions
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion work is never finished. We are a work in progress and continue to evaluate the DE&I processes, programs and policies in place to ensure they bring real, meaningful organizational change and growth within our company and industry.
Message from our CEO
As a global company, we must advocate and promote human rights through a diversified lens. While discrimination, equity, and bias are universal – they can be experienced differently globally.
To effectively promote Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, a “one size fits all” DE&I model is not for Patra. Instead, we’ve implemented a DE&I model to evolve, progress, drive awareness and social change, and hold ourselves accountable through transparency. It’s structured to continuously engage in a deep understanding of the culture and context of all the regions we work in to ensure we are driving the most meaningful, inclusive, and diverse employee experiences across our global workforce and the communities our employees reside.
Patra employees are the heart of this organization, and I am committed to ensuring employees feel respected, safe, and valued.
We are One Patra.
John Simpson, CEO
