As a WBENC-certified company, we are committed to walking our talk by creating an opportunity cycle in the places where we do business – in the U.S., India, and the Dominican Republic. Below are just a few of the ways that we are creating a workforce that reflects our clients and their customers, embracing multiple perspectives toward a unity of purpose, while also reaching beyond the corporate walls into our communities.
The global profile of poverty has been predominantly rural, young, and undereducated. More than 40 percent of the global poor live in economies affected by fragility, conflict, and violence, and that number is expected to rise to 67 percent in the next decade. Half of the poor are children. Women represent majority of the poor in most regions and among some age groups. About 70 percent of the global poor aged 15 and over have no schooling or only some basic education. Impact sourcing reaches into those populations with opportunities for enduring, meaningful careers that foster hope. If someone has the will, we will teach them the skills.
Four of every five individuals living below the international poverty line reside in rural areas, representing around 48% of the population.
Globally people of working age with disabilities face 80% to 90% unemployment in devloping counntries and between 50% and 70% in industrialized countries.
Children and youth (ages 15–24) together account for two-thirds of the global poor, much higher than the cumulative population share of the 0–24 age.
As an NMSDC-certified and WBENC-certified company, we have seen how supplier diversity can open doors. There is no guarantee of winning business, but there is the chance to compete, to put your name and business out there, and to build the relationships that are vital to the success of like-minded companies that genuinely care about the communities in which they do business. And it benefits both parties. Your next great partner may a business that you would have never found had diversity not been a consideration.
We have also worked to pay it forward, so to speak, with a program that solicits bids
from women- and minority-owned enterprises. For instance, when moving into our
new Louisville headquarters, we actively sought and contracted with companies that
were women- and minority-owned. These companies are qualified, they do good
work, and this type of program creates opportunity by giving businesses the chance
to compete while broadening the playing field.
Our people-first philosophy also equates to success with a positive impact
on the communities where we live, work, play, and serve.
Our trusted performance and execution are underpinned by a highly-educated, loyal workforce,
with innovative solutions crafted by award-winning leadership.
