ECA is committed to diversity in all areas of our business. We believe that our employees should be as diverse as the communities in which we serve.
A diverse workforce enables us to make the most effective decisions to operate our business in a manner that provides a superior student experience. With this in mind, we work diligently to integrate diversity in recruitment, hiring and retention. Training and development in the areas of diversity, inclusion, conflict management and sensitivity help us maintain diversity in our corporate culture.
In our business routines, we strive to be deliberate in our commitment to diversity and consider it to be a strategic imperative. We understand the competitive advantage that supplier diversity brings, and some of our initiatives are designed to encourage diversity in the supply chain process. Other initiatives involve sustainability practices which reduce cost and ultimately sustain the longevity of our business units.
We have a responsibility to the communities we serve. Initiatives that allow our company to broaden and deepen its commitment to diversity include support of (or partnership with) various philanthropic, political and/or community-based programs and organizations. Special emphasis is placed on social investment that provides opportunities to make a positive difference in the lives of those who need it most.
Enroll, Teach and Place
As an educational company, we broadly define our duties as enroll, teach and place. As we practice acceptance and inclusion in our daily operations, we are sending our students an important message: that treating all people with dignity is not only a priority, but something which prepares them for the kind of success that improves their entire community.
Similarly, by showing the marketplace our commitment to diversity, we hope to model a mindset that motivates other businesses and institutions to do likewise.
