Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Access
Echo Origin holds strong convictions that now more than ever is a time to take a stand for multicultural inclusion, social equity, and creating avenues for all individuals to succeed.
The Need for Action
Today’s social climate requires individuals and organizations to be anti-racist rather than embodying non-racist beliefs and policies. This stance requires the overt denouncing of language, actions, and policies that disenfranchise black, indigenous, and people of color within our global communities. To do this, Echo Origin champions the voices of anti-racist advocates and activists and the work they do to make the world a better place for all individuals. These same tenants apply to being overtly against all forms of ableism, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia, as we work in solidarity and support of differently-abled individuals rights, women’s rights and LGBTQ+ communities.
As a team seeking to make changes with impact, we stand behind movements for social justice both as an organization and as individuals within our communities. These beliefs translate into our commitments as an organization, and the actions we take to follow through on these commitments:
- We will create and embrace a diverse, inclusive, and supportive work environment where all have the opportunity to thrive.
- We will serve as a partner to clients in addressing and solving problems that exist and arise from systemic racism, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia.
- We will stand in solidarity with partners to fight against racism, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia across our systems.
- We will serve as a voice in the community as a force for solving the problems that exist and arise as a result of systemic racism, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia.
Echo Origin received the Full Accessibility and Inclusion: Moving Towards Equality (FAIME) award that recognizes businesses and organizations that create an inclusive work environment for people with disabilities. We focus on creating a culturally diverse and inclusive environment in who we work with when it comes to background and the differently abled.
