Diversity brings different perspectives, increased creativity, higher innovation, and faster problem solving. By 2024, Cascade aims to fill all open positions at a rate of 60% from underrepresented groups, with half of those hires being BIPOC. With this goal, we will work towards reflecting the demographic communities in which we live and work; with diverse backgrounds and perspectives represented at the employee, manager, and board levels.
While our Human Resources and Recruiting teams are responsible for the bulk of this work, we all understand the individual responsibility for creating and supporting safe, welcoming, and inclusive workspaces that will support the retention and happiness of all new employees.
In addition to diverse hiring practices, we leverage our market power to work with diverse business enterprises (DBEs) and subcontractors, supporting traditionally marginalized groups in our business communities.
