Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

As an organization, ISTAT aims to celebrate, support and educate member companies and individuals that work to strengthen their DEI initiatives. As members of ISTAT, we pledge to actively promote inclusivity and respect for all team members. To achieve this, we will:

  1. Provide leadership, support and mentorship to all members of the ISTAT community, especially those from underrepresented backgrounds.
  2. Be intentional about the questions I ask and the details I learn about someone to build a stronger connection and avoid assumptions.
  3. Include all members in group conversations and ensure everyone has the necessary context to participate.
  4. Share common interests and values when making introductions to help establish connections and relationships.
  5. Acknowledge, celebrate and respect cultural differences (including holidays) while making an effort to better understand them.
