FRANKLINCOVEY’S FOCUS ON DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION
FranklinCovey is a company built on culture. We know that the strongest and most innovative cultures intentionally build diverse teams and cultivate a sense of belonging across those teams.
In order to accomplish our mission — to enable greatness in people and organisations everywhere — FranklinCovey is committed to increasing diversity across all dimensions in our ranks, ensuring an inclusive culture, and investing in equity across our organisation. With more than 2,000 associates globally and content delivered in more than 150 countries, it is critical that FranklinCovey reflect the population we serve in order to best connect to their needs in support of our mission.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are in strong alignment with FranklinCovey’s core mission and values. As our CEO, Bob Whitman, states:
Our stated mission is to unleash greatness in people and organisations everywhere. As I often share, there are two truths inherent to this mission. First, that there is greatness in everyone. And second, that it can be systematically unleashed through the proper application of paradigms, principles, and practices.
One of those principles is that no matter how we look, where we come from, or what we believe, we are given equal opportunity to be great! The principles we espouse and embrace include equality, fairness, potential, love, and human dignity. Some of the practices we teach are building our own self-awareness so we can recognise our biases and get better, cultivating connections through empathy and curiosity and being courageous during difficult times. Our content is focused on removing the barriers that diminish people’s potential, and bringing down the walls that separate people. [In order to read the CEO’s full letter, please follow this link.]
FranklinCovey works with clients every day to steward diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives bolstered by our learning programs. And we know that creating a diverse workforce and championing diversity within our own walls at FranklinCovey is crucial to our success.
