Diversity & Inclusion
At CIM, we maintain a focus on nurturing, expanding and promoting diversity and inclusion in all aspects of our working lives. We firmly believe that our diverse backgrounds and points of view enable us to function collaboratively and make a positive difference in communities.
Diversity & Inclusion Council
Comprised of employees representing various departments, seniorities, backgrounds and experiences, our Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Council focuses on employee education, engagement and reporting. The D&I Council plays a crucial role in CIM’s effort to create and maintain an inclusive culture and encourages employees to honor and celebrate diversity in relationships with each other and all those we serve.
Increasing Workplace Diversity and Inclusiveness
We strive to eliminate any unfair bias in hiring, compensation and performance evaluation practices. For example, hiring managers are trained to acknowledge and reduce pre-existing biases from hiring processes. Additionally, we routinely review and update our policies and guidance for fair pay and performance review methodologies.
CIM Women’s Alliance
We recognize and value the contributions of women at CIM. Through intentional initiatives like CIM Women’s Alliance, we work to cultivate an environment that empowers women to share their insights and make an impact. CIM Women’s Alliance is an inclusive and supportive employee network that seeks to recruit, retain and advance women at CIM through education, mentorship and collaboration.
We support employees with tools and education to maintain a working environment of positivity, awareness and inclusiveness. Using an online learning platform and on-demand resources, CIM provides focused training on topics such as unconscious bias awareness, counteracting racism and supporting gender equality in the workplace. To create a safe and comfortable work environment, free from harassment and discrimination, mandatory courses are assigned to employees on a recurring basis. To foster continuous education, CIM’s D&I Council distributes a monthly newsletter that highlights various cultures, global holidays, and important dates in history.
