Our Focus and Commitments to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) at Acquis

We are focused on providing educational and training opportunities around DEI topics to empower our people and advance our inclusive culture. We have established a DEI Committee to develop long-term strategies aligned with our commitments and ensure accountability every step of the way.

Diversity and Equity:

We are focused on building a diverse workforce and equitable workplace through recruitment, retention, and advancement efforts. We will continue to examine and analyze our existing gaps and ensure we provide meaningful opportunities for our people to succeed and thrive.

Engagement and Community Impact:

We are focused on investing time and spend on skill-based volunteering, corporate contributions, and partnerships to make a positive impact on our communities. We partner with diverse suppliers and vendors from small-business enterprises (SBEs), minority-owned enterprises (MBEs), and woman-owned enterprises (WBEs) with the goal of building new and sustainable relationships.
