We’re at our best when everyone in our community is seen, respected, and welcomed.

Formative is committed to positively impacting our staff––promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within our organization. We uphold these standards in our working relationships with our clients and partners.

Our commitment to DEI is a continuous, sustained program that aligns with a longer-term roadmap. We incorporate practices around diversity, equity, and inclusion into our policies, programs, and services, including: fostering a safe, welcoming work environment that champions differences; cultivating a staff that’s representative of our community at all levels of our organization; and valuing leadership that goes beyond positions of power.

We continue to commit resources across our organization to ensure substantial progress against our DEI commitments, and use milestones in our DEI roadmap to track and measure our progress over time.
