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.
