We like it that way.
Our mission to cultivate Diversity & Inclusion at RAI is driven from the top by our President and CEO, Guy Meldrum.
“We always strive to make our organization a place where all our employees can thrive and feel accepted, appreciated and valued. Our steadfast commitment to living by our Ethos and diversity and inclusion principles, enables our business to innovate, succeed and drive better business results.”
Guy has signed the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™ pledge, joining over 750 CEOs who have committed the companies they lead to demonstrably advancing diversity and inclusion in the workplace through meaningful action.
We celebrate individuality. We celebrate diversity.
We celebrate you.
We’re committed to creating an environment where you feel empowered to be you. Together, we’re focusing on:
Our ambition is to reach gender parity and a minimum 20% increase in minority representation by 2025.
Encouraging employees to join our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) to empower and connect us all to one another.
Strengthening our culture of inclusion by providing employees with ”Strength from Diversity” training to create stronger connections, deeper understanding and true appreciation of differences.
No matter your gender, race, sexual
orientation, background or beliefs –
you are celebrated here.
ERGs are designed to create an inclusive community – they are open to all.
The aim of each ERG is to enhance our organizational culture, engage externally through community involvement and provide a network of support to foster growth and development. Throughout the year ERGs will host programs and activities that strive to:
Inform and develop
employee communication and events.
to engage on issues relevant to ERG members within local, national and global communities.
with employees who share similar interests by building and strengthening social networks.
Any employee can join any ERG.
‘Allies’ simply represents a formal path to membership for an employee that does not characteristically identify with a particular ERG. ERG ‘Allies’ are passionate in supporting and advancing the group’s mission and function as a regular members of our ERGs.
Hear what our employees have to say.
