DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION MISSION STATEMENT

The Powell Group of Companies encompasses a diverse collection of successful businesses, but our spirit isn’t found in the diversity of our portfolio, it’s found in the diversity of our people. At Powell, we believe that our greatest opportunity for continued success is fostered in the belief that every voice matters. Each one of us has a unique story and we promise to do our part to ensure that those stories are heard, seen, acknowledged, and supported.

Powell’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee was established in April 2021 with the intention of fostering a community based on collaboration, creativity, and belonging.  Committee members at all levels of the organization, and across various business units, meet once per month to discuss upcoming events and initiatives, review policies and current practices, and to share resources to improve diversity in the workplace.  All members are encouraged to contribute ideas in a judgement free space, to enhance and improve the experience and work environment of the organization.
