Our Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion


 

We are committed to demonstrating mutual respect and appreciation for our similarities and differences (for example, race, color, culture, gender, sexual orientation, religion, education, ethnicity, age, language, physical ability and thought) so that each employee can realize his or her potential and we exceed our customers’ expectations.

Andersen is a proud signatory of the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion initiative, the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion within the workplace. By signing the coalition’s pledge, Jay Lund, Andersen Chairman and CEO, joins more than 500 companies and organizations, spanning sectors, industries, geographies, and size, who agree to:

  • Cultivate workplaces that support open dialogue on complex, and sometimes difficult, conversations about diversity and inclusion
  • Implement and expand unconscious bias education
  • Share best known—and unsuccessful—actions.

We’re proud to stand with the Human Rights Campaign Business Coalition for the Equality Act. Andersen joins a growing coalition of 400-plus companies calling for the urgent passage of the Equality Act — federal legislation that would modernize our nation’s civil rights laws by including explicit protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) people, as well as improve protections for women, people of color and people of all faiths.
