Diversity and inclusion are more than just words at Holtzman. Our people live these values every day.
Here at Holtzman, we are proud to celebrate our team’s varied experiences, cultures, and interests because our perspectives are broadened and our lives enriched with these differences. Through our Diversity & Inclusion Initiative, we are continuing to move forward in ensuring our employees are able to share their voices and feel that they belong.
In 2021, we enhanced our initiative to include financial commitments to HBCU’s and minority-owned businesses, future partnerships with NABA & ALPFA, and revised time-off policies to include allowances for activism, voting in all local, state, and federal elections, and celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day. These changes signify our commitment to promote actionable change that will have a lasting and meaningful impact. We stand united against racism, inequality, and discrimination.
We encourage you to explore our Diversity & Inclusion webpage to learn more about subcommittees, people, and culture.
