Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
As an American manufacturer and a member of the design community, we must unequivocally state our support for, and ongoing commitment to DEI (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion). We are holding ourselves accountable for long-term internal change in the form of a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Committee.
We have identified the below areas (now subcommittees) where we will focus our attention on moving forward.
Internal Awareness & Training
Identify and implement content and curriculum to help raise our collective awareness and knowledge about all things DEI.
Recruiting & Retention
Identify and implement opportunities to evolve and improve our recruiting and retention structure (people, processes, tools) from a DEI perspective.
Brand Voice & Creative Content
Act as a liaison to the brand & marketing team to keep us accountable for awareness and improvement of all things DEI as we strive to better represent BIPOC voices and experiences in our content.
Suppliers, Vendors & Partners
Work with our supply chain team and leadership team to develop new systems and processes to raise our awareness and accountability for DEI beyond Schoolhouse within our broader team of suppliers, partners, and vendors.
Internal Pulse & Metrics
Work with HR to help us measure DEI progress internally and keep employee voices, concerns, and ideas top of mind through regular surveys and action items.
Our inspiration has always been the home and helping people create spaces that reflect their values. Our values start with equity for all. We plan to keep this page updated to hold ourselves accountable in our support for systemic change. As a brand and as individuals, we’re committed to all things DEI.
