Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
We vow to establish programs and initiatives around diversity, equity, and inclusion that better our organization and our greater community. We acknowledge the systemic barriers that have existed in the security industry and recognize that removing those barriers will require a collaborative and conscious effort.
Our human capital is the most valuable asset we have. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, innovation, self-expression and unique capabilities have allowed us—and will continue to allow us—to achieve our mission of safety and security.
We manage risk everywhere to keep people safe.
We are striving to be better.
Concentric recognizes we have a long way to go in our DEI efforts, and we are committed to reviewing and expanding our goals on a bi-annual basis.
