TSG Joins More Than 1,000 CEOs in Unprecedented Commitment to Advance Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Workplace
November 17, 2020
The Select Group (TSG) joins the growing coalition pledging to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace. One of more than 1,000 CEOs that have come together for CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™, George Karakostantis is committing himself and TSG to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace.
By signing on to this commitment, The Select Group is pledging to take action to cultivate a workplace where diverse perspectives and experiences are welcomed and respected and where employees feel encouraged to discuss diversity, equity and inclusion. The collective of more than 1,000 signatories have already shared more than 1,000 best known actions, exchanging tangible learning opportunities and creating collaborative conversations via the initiative’s unified hub, CEOAction.com.
“Diversity, equity and inclusion are difficult issues to navigate, but if we avoid constructive conversation about our differences, communication deteriorates and productivity suffers,” said Karakostantis, CEO of The Select Group. “I am proud that TSG is committing to cultivating a work environment where employees can openly address challenges, present opportunities, and share perspectives.”
Organizations joining the pledge are taking a step towards effecting positive change. A diverse and inclusive workforce facilitates community, and it also drives innovation and creativity. A recent study found that 85 percent of those surveyed reported that diversity is a key component to fostering innovation.
CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™ is cultivating a new type of ecosystem centered around collaboration and sharing. The actions, available via CEOAction.com, showcase real-life examples of the open and transparent conversations to cultivate more diverse and inclusive workplace environments. The addition of new signatories expands the impact of this work beyond the office to communities and industries.
The Select Group represents one of 124 companies in the technology industry. By joining together to tackle this critical societal issue, we hope to cultivate more diverse, equitable and inclusive workplaces among other technical services companies.
