Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion at Veris Insights

At Veris Insights, DEI is a firm-wide mission. We study best practices, implement them internally, track results, and constantly push ourselves to improve. We still have a lot of room for growth, but we’re proud of the culture and team we’ve built thus far.

How we promote DEI internally

 

Bring your authentic self to work: Not everyone wants to bring their whole self to work, and that’s ok! We want you to bring in the self that makes your comfortable and empowers you to be at your best.

Actions follow words: Though necessary, it is not enough to just talk about DEI. We seek to back up intentions with policies, trainings, metrics, and actions.

Inclusion is not a natural consequence of diversity: Diversity and inclusion are different things. As Verna Myers, VP of Inclusion at Netflix, put it: “Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance.”

Transparent metrics drive accountability: We set internal goals related to DEI, measure them constantly, and share those results with the team. 

DEI is a constant journey, not a destination: Will we ever lift up and say we’ve made it? That there’s no more progress to be had? Likely not. It’s not in our nature to stop moving. There will also always be more we can do to understand and care for our people.

How we think about inclusion

We all need different things to feel included. And, creating an inclusive culture takes work! Here’s what inclusion means to some of our team members.

What Inclusion Means to Fernando

“One of the initiatives that has made me feel the most included here at Veris Insights is the Lunch & Learn series. I’ve found Lunch & Learns to be wonderful platforms to share my identity, culture, and personal experiences. But, perhaps more importantly, they have also given me the privilege of learning about those of others. Veris is a place where inclusion is practiced in every decision and interaction. It is a place where I feel appreciated for my own self and where I am encouraged to thrive both professionally and personally.”
Fernando Cervera
Marketing Senior Associate

What Inclusion Means to Eda

“During the first 6 months of tenure at Veris Insights, associates are paired with a mentor, usually someone from a different team. Before my first day, my mentor emailed me, saying how excited they were to get to know me and to work together on my professional development and career goals. Especially as this is my first job right after graduating, this email was extremely meaningful to me, and made me feel valued and included, even before my first day!"

What Inclusion Means to Chelsea

“At Veris Insights, we live by our values. During Pride Month, we released a multi-part report on authentically recruiting LGBTQ+ students. We not only hosted a seminar and a panel for our members, but we also devoted time during our regular Queer Collective (Veris Insights' LGBTQ+ Affinity Group) meeting to discuss how we experienced those insights. It's remarkable to be able to bring my full self to work while elevating the voices of students so often unheard.”
Chelsea Schein
Director of University Recruiting Research
