Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) transform our colleagues, our company, our clients and our communities and propel us forward. By recognizing, valuing and maintaining diversity of all types—gender, gender expression, race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, religion, disability status, socio-economic background and more—we create an environment where individual authenticity can power collective ambition.
At Edelman, we are in relentless pursuit of an equitable and inspiring workplace, where empathy is progress and curiosity is momentum. A workplace that is respectful to all, reflects and represents the world in which we live and fosters trust and true collaboration.
Each day and on each project, we are working to ensure that our colleagues truly feel a sense of belonging and can bring the best of who they are to their work— taking action and shaping impactful moments and movements at Edelman, with our clients and for our communities.
The world is changing rapidly, and our DEI actions must evolve and accelerate to meet our employees' and clients' needs. Edelman's strategy is divided into four pillars to ensure DEI is woven into our culture, behaviors and processes.
As part of our ongoing commitment to champion DE&I within the PR, marketing, advertising, and communications industries, Edelman has made it a priority to partner with diverse industry and professional groups to provide leadership and growth opportunities for individuals around our network. Additionally, we work with community organizations and non-profit partners to positively impact and influence society.
Edelman’s Global Week of Belonging (WOB) is an opportunity for colleagues across our global network to be educated, engaged and empowered in and around our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) journey. While this work is ongoing, this week provides the opportunity, and the space, for colleagues to be actively informed and involved in various aspects of understanding, inclusion and belonging at Edelman.
Our third annual WOB is scheduled for Monday, May 22 - Friday, May 26, 2023. This year’s theme is: "Cultivating Community Through Connection.”.
