Our DEI Journey
We are sharing Protiviti’s story to summarize our DEI efforts for our employees and all those who are excited to take this journey with us. We are committed to a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace. We acknowledge each of us has a critical role in fostering inclusion and creating a culture of belonging globally. On our ongoing quest for excellence, together, we will learn and grow with each step along the way, changing the experiences of our employees, clients, and communities. We acknowledge our progress and remain committed to the milestone work on the path ahead.
Our Inclusion Champion Network
Our global network of Inclusion Champions implement diversity programing at the local office level, organizing educational programs and events and facilitating local employee network groups that connect with our global diversity, equity and inclusion strategies.
Our Supplier Inclusion Program
Protiviti, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Robert Half, is aligned to the enterprise Supplier Inclusion Program. The program is designed to support the promotion, growth and development of small and/or diverse-, woman-, veteran-, service-disabled veteran-, LGBTQ+-owned businesses and business owners with apparent and non-apparent disabilities. We also strongly encourage our community alliances and suppliers to work with diverse suppliers themselves.
Our Racial Equity Strategy
We are fully committed to providing equity to those of all races and ethnicities within our firm and in our society. Equity asks us to acknowledge that everyone has different requirements and lived experiences while aiming to remove barriers that prevent the inclusion of our diverse colleagues and our community members.
Inclusion moves us forward together
We are on this DEI journey together, and we succeed through teamwork, diversity and respect for one another. We operate in a highly collaborative manner where all viewpoints are heard and valued. We recognize and promote flexibility as essential to supporting our people.
Standing Together Against Racial Injustice
The events related to the crisis of racial injustice have emanated throughout the U.S. and to other countries worldwide, so we believe it is appropriate to share with you our position, our actions, and how our values guide our actions. Racial injustice and violence have no place in our society or in our company. Together we stand with the Black community in condemning such hatred and seeking resolution, reform, and real change.
Our focus at Protiviti is a long-term commitment for enduring change, even when this progress requires us to be uncomfortable. Meaningful actions require the rich teamwork that is a hallmark of our firm, building on the inertia we are now seeing. The social and racial injustice that we are all witnessing will take time to resolve, but we stand committed to taking focused action to support this transformation.
Lowering Financial Barriers to Opportunity | Diverse Supplier Grant Initiative
Protiviti is proud to partner with JPMorgan Chase in the Diverse Supplier Grant Initiative. This program is aimed at providing diverse-owned businesses, with an emphasis on Black, Hispanic, and Latino-owned businesses, access to growth capital they need to more effectively compete and secure corporate contracts from companies like ours, JPMorgan Chase, and the Fortune 500.
Meeting minimum requirements for doing business with large corporations can often be cost-prohibitive for diverse-owned small businesses. This program is being funded by a combination of contributions from JPMorgan Chase, as well as other corporations like ours, with an interest in fostering the success of diverse suppliers.
Through this initiative we aim to lower common financial barriers diverse businesses experience when seeking opportunities with large corporations. Our collective goal is to deliver a multi-year grant program that is agile and scalable to meet the rising demand for emerging Black and Hispanic businesses in corporate supply chains. JPMorgan Chase, as the sponsor of this initiative, partnered with the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) and certified 501(c)(3), to administer the initiative end-to-end.
