“Our people should always be able to bring their ‘whole selves’ to work without fear of rejection, stigma or ridicule. It’s not risky to be yourself at D&Z, and our people know that and live it. Not only do I want employees to be themselves, but I also encourage everyone to share what truly makes them unique. Being able to effectively collaborate and provoke meaningful dialogue in an inclusive environment has set a foundation at our company for greater things”

Advancing Diversity and Inclusion

Learn how America’s largest employers – including D&Z (a parent company to DZConneX)—are making diversity and inclusion a top priority. More than 120 CEOs of top U.S. companies shared stories and successful business practices that are expanding job and growth opportunities for people of all backgrounds, both within their organizations as well as through their supply chains and the communities they work in.

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION IN ACTION

Diversity & Inclusion Action Plan

Each D&Z business unit develops specific action plans to meet our strategic D&I objectives. These plans are reported on quarterly to our Leadership Council.

Talent Recruitment and Retention

D&Z analyzes recruiting and retention efforts quarterly in order to ensure D&Z is leveraging best practices and resources on recruiting, retaining and developing diverse talent.

Mentorship

D&Z has an incredibly talented workforce willing to share its knowledge by mentoring. Our Women’s Resource Group also offers informal, virtual mentoring programs via D&Z Circles.

Diversity & Inclusion Performance

As part of our annual performance reviews, employees are appraised on their ability to bring our core value of diversity to action.

Diversity Training

We have several programs that provide diversity and inclusion training throughout an employee’s career. D&Z/DZConneX strives to ensure that all employees understand its policies and the leadership behaviors that foster an inclusive culture.
