IO Releases First Annual EDI Report
Earlier this year, the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Office at IO released its first annual EDI Report. The Report is designed to reflect on the progress IO has made against our commitment to intentionally prioritize equity of access, experience, and outcomes for our IO employees and with our partners, to promote a sense of belonging that represents and reflects the needs of the communities we serve. The Report highlights the successes we celebrate, but also identifies opportunities for continued work and improvement. Please view the full report here.
Two years ago, IO accelerated its EDI journey through the construction and implementation of our first long-term EDI strategy. The strategy was crafted to inspire a sustained sense of belonging, redesign systems and drive accountability through our people, partners and the wider industry ecosystem. Our EDI strategy is grounded in eight areas of work, and we encourage you to read the full report to learn about the important work IO has undertaken in each area. Some highlights include:
We recognize that much of the progress we have made is through treating EDI as a business imperative across all our operations. And while we’re proud of the significant strides our organization has taken over the past two years, we know that our work is not done. We look forward to sharing updates on an annual basis, as we continue to deepen our commitment to progress for our colleagues, our partners and the communities we serve.
