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."

— Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

DE&I Program Pillars

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

DE&I are catalysts for achieving our business objectives. Through strategic alliances with diverse professional associations and community organizations, we consistently deliver high-quality, market-specific business solutions for our clients in the communities we live, work and serve.

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.

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.

Internal Events

  • Courageous conversations
  • Fireside chats
  • Town halls
  • Holiday and observance awareness

Community Events to Strengthen Bonds

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.

Uplifting Voices Through
Employee Resource Groups

Aston Carter’s Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are voluntary, employee-led groups that serve as a resource for members and the organization by fostering a diverse, inclusive work group aligned with our vision, mission and values.

ERGs provide a safe space for people who share common bonds and aids them in supporting one another while solving real business challenges relevant to the ERG members. Beyond this, they also strengthen our culture and increase our employees’ sense of belonging by empowering our people to join and start ERGs that align with their unique interests and needs.
