The Important Work
As an organization, we support BLACK LIVES MATTER and all movements for social change regarding systemic racism and injustice. Words are not enough, we must be accountable for our actions towards change. We have important work to do internally to build an effective and inclusive culture where all employees feel welcome, respected, and heard. Our recently formed Employee Engagement Council (EEC) will help inform leadership decisions and actions leading to the changes that matter most. Over the next 60 days our goal is to achieve the following:
- Hire in-house Human Resource + Recruiting Manager with extensive experience in inclusion and diversity.
- Identify and begin meaningful community engagement efforts in our home base of New Orleans.
- Review benchmarking results of a 3rd party compensation audit.
- Complete sensitivity and diversity training with our Leadership team.
- Receive feedback from the EEC on employee and partner needs.
Beyond the next 60 days, we are also accountable to continue expanding our knowledge and cultural competencies through training and education. Additionally, we will be forming a Board of Directors to include a diversity of people and disciplines to help inform our future.
Currently in our community, KREWE Foundation continues to provide eye exams and free prescription glasses to students throughout New Orleans. We also want to provide our customers a choice to support change agents when you shop with us. Should you choose, we will continue to donate 20% of your purchase to the below charities that support the BLACK LIVES MATTER movement and other human rights efforts.
