Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

We are strengthened by our differences, united by making a difference

Diversity, equity and inclusion is core to Spectra’s recruitment, culture, operations and growth. Our team members and clients represent a diverse cross-section of communities, and we want Spectra to reflect the values, and recognize the challenges, of each community.

In short, we want to be a company our team members are proud to work for.

We strive to harness diversity to create an inclusive culture and equitable workplace where all employees feel valued and can bring their whole selves to work. Not only is it the right thing to do, but we know that diverse, equitable and inclusive teams invite deeper collaboration and understanding, spark greater innovation, and achieve higher employee satisfaction.

Taking Responsibility

Spectra’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Council and its Champions across North America and the world guide our efforts to identify and implement real change to support employees of diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, gender identities and orientations, and abilities.

The DEI Council promotes programs, initiatives, and employee resource groups; increases the impact of DEI initiatives; encourages discussion and collaboration; and holds leaders accountable for true progress. We operate under three founding pillars.

 

Workforce
  • Hire, retain and develop a workforce that reflects the clients and communities we serve

 Workplace
  • Maintain a workplace culture that values and leverages differences and similarities, and drives innovation through inclusion

 Marketplace
  • Create client and customer value by partnering with diverse suppliers, engaging with the community, and delivering culturally relevant products and services

Employee Resource Groups

Spectra’s strength is in our diversity and ability to create an inclusive workplace. We want all team members to feel heard and understood, respected and appreciated. Our employee resource groups create communities for members and allies in the workplace based on shared characteristics or life experiences. Our ERGs focus on building community, providing support, and contributing to personal and professional development.
