Our RISE Committee is a staff-led initiative made up of 15 members located across the globe and from various teams within Com Laude. The Co-chairs of the RISE Committee are voted in by team members and make recommendations directly to the Board of Directors. Together, the Committee helps advise Com Laude on ways to be Responsible, Inclusive, Sustainable and Equal within the company and in everyday life.
RISE Committee mission statement:
“The RISE Committee want to create, nurture and sustain an inclusive culture whilst celebrating diversity. We will achieve our goals through education, by listening and respecting each other, and by co-operating on ideas for improvement to create a workplace with equal opportunities and an employer who gives something back to our communities.”
Recent RISE initiatives include:
In addition to the above, the RISE Committee continues to support our ECO group, to help promote environmentally friendly practices inside the company and in day-to-day life.
As we continue our inclusion and diversity journey, it is a shared goal of our employees, represented through our RISE Committee, and our senior leadership to improve our Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) posture. We aspire to a culture of authenticity, respect, and trust.
New D&I Initiatives under consideration or development include:
We constantly look for new opportunities, especially those relevant to our industry. For example, our Executive Chair serves on INTA’s new Brands for A Better Society Committee. We believe that a positive attitude and a committed team can make a tangible difference to inclusion and diversity.
