Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
As we accelerate our client’s impact on the world it is imperative that we attract and retain talent from a variety of cultures, beliefs and backgrounds to make us more innovative and deliver the best solutions for our clients. To do that, we have to ensure our employees are comfortable and confident voicing their unique insights.
“We’re fully committed to building and nurturing diverse teams. Studies have demonstrated that teams with diverse backgrounds and perspectives outperform those that are homogenous and given to "group- think" approaches. We are creating a DE&I strategy that is intentional, authentic, sustainable, and embedded in the DNA of our organization. This deliberate investment is critical to delivering the best
solutions to help our clients achieve mission success.” – CEO, Peter LaMontagne
Communicating transparently is one of our core values which helps to build a trusting and inclusive environment. We regularly share updates on our DE&I activities, so employees fully understand our initiatives and have the opportunity to share their thoughts and ideas. We also continually collect data to help improve and evolve our program to support the needs of our workforce.
To foster an environment that cultivates belonging, we have four primary objectives in our phased DE&I journey:
- 1. Re-imagine SMX through continual transformation of our culture and workforce
- 2. Build on the foundation and structure for DE&I and drive accountability at all levels
- 3. Identify and evaluate structural gaps across SMX with a DE&I lens
- 4. Equip managers with the necessary resources to develop underrepresented talent pipeline
Wherever you are on your transformation journey, SMX can help you get there faster and more effectively.
