Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Cultivating Inclusivity by
Celebrating Our Differences

    When we all contribute to a more inclusive workplace, our community and organization thrives.

Respecting and cultivating diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) is central to building an effective, high-performing organization. At Aston Carter, each person — by virtue of identity and cultural attributes, as well as individual experiences — brings new perspective to our company. We welcome and value these differences, which contribute to and uplift our whole community.


Our Commitment to
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Aston Carter is committed to creating access and opportunity for historically underrepresented groups.

Our DE&I council is trained to advocate for and increase representation of individuals at all levels of our organization. The council is committed to creating and implementing enterprise-wide initiatives that support Aston Carter’s inclusion efforts.

"DE&I is a founding and strategic priority for Aston Carter. We believe it’s essential to building an effective, high-performing organization that propels lives and communities. It’s our differences and commitment to authenticity that allows us to evolve and be true partners to our employees and customers."

The foundation of our DE&I program is rooted in three core pillars.

We strive to create an inclusive work environment where every employee is valued and respected for their unique differences. We promote inclusive hiring, and our focus on inclusive leadership is integrated into all levels of employee training. Aston Carter leaders amplify the diverse strengths and motivations of their teams by forming and honoring relationships built on trust and respect.

Purpose-Driven Connections

At Aston Carter, we seek opportunities to authentically connect with our people by supporting inclusive conversations and events that empower and uplift our communities.

Purpose driven connections through the power of listening.

The Power of Listening

We regularly host internal events that encourage employees to engage in meaningful conversations centered on DE&I. As a community, we aim to keep an open dialogue around issues, achievements and topics our people are motivated by. Through candid conversations, we hope to continuously strengthen our ability to empathize with others — especially when their experience differs from our own.

We understand the importance of showing up for our communities, so we prioritize participating in various events, parades, conferences and festivals that align with our values. Through our volunteer efforts, we strive to build a stronger community and increase awareness for causes and organizations that support underrepresented communities and foster change.
