Centro Founder & CEO Shawn Riegsecker shares three lessons he's learned so far in his Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) journey.
Magic happens when people of all identities and backgrounds come together to support a common goal. At Basis Technologies, we’re in constant pursuit of that magic—and we know we can’t achieve it without systems to ensure diversity, equity, and inclusion across our teams.
Grow a culture that welcomes, supports, and champions people with diverse identities.
Identify and remove explicit and implicit barriers to a diverse, inclusive, and equitable workplace.
Provide continuing education to ensure all our people are familiar with diverse perspectives.
Basis Employee Resource Groups are communities centered around shared identities, interests, life experiences, and/or backgrounds—providing their members with the time, space, and resources they need to come together in a safe space.
Each month, we host an employee-led conversation aimed at educating and fostering dialogue among our team members. Previous topics include the importance of LGBTQIA+ pride, what allyship looks like in practice, and panels of team members with shared identities.
Our internal philanthropic organization engages our team in giving back to under-resourced communities outside of Basis. The Giving Tree integrates service into our corporate DNA, ensuring our efforts to build a more equitable world extend outside of the workplace.
Basis Technologies provides our people with free admission to local, immersive cultural experiences that allow them to learn about non-dominant and/or marginalized cultures while building rapport with their fellow Beeps. Facilitating these experiences helps us further our goal of providing continuing education around a variety of identities and perspectives.
Our Reframe community group provides a safe space to rethink how we understand mental health conditions and discuss practices to manage them.
