Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
C1’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
We believe that diversity of thought, perspective, and background are key ingredients to personal fulfillment and business success. At C1, we are committed to building a workforce that represents the world in which we live, and understand that only then will we reach our highest level of achievement as an organization.
We recognize that we will achieve greater success by providing team members with an environment that respects the dignity of every individual, fosters trust, and allows every team member the ability to nurture their talent as individuals and as part of a collaborative team.
We believe in the power of connecting people with each other and their purpose. We are committed to creating an environment and opportunities that enable our team to develop their full potential, live their purpose, be themselves, and connect meaningfully with colleagues in the workplace.
We recognize the importance of doing what’s right and how a more diverse workforce creates a richer and more valuable experience for us as individuals and also for C1 as a whole. We want to be known as much for our industry success as for our leadership in building a diverse workforce and inclusive culture. One doesn’t happen without the other.

CEO Action Pledge
C1 is proud to be a signatory of CEO Action for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity, equity and inclusion within the workplace. It is comprised of 1,000+ companies and organizations across industries, geographies, size and scale.
As part of this commitment, we pledge to cultivate a workplace where diverse perspectives and experiences are welcomed and respected and where employees feel comfortable and encouraged to discuss diversity, equity and inclusion. Part of the ways we do this is through implementing four key actions:
- Continue to cultivate workplaces that support open dialogue on complex, and sometimes difficult, conversations about diversity, equity and inclusion
- Implement and expand unconscious bias education
- Share best-known—and unsuccessful—actions
- Create and share strategic inclusion and diversity plans with our board of directors
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Council
In 2019, C1 assembled a team of dedicated individuals to form its Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Council.

An Ongoing Effort + Impact
C1 recognizes the value of developing the tools necessary for individuals to use their voices to impact change and commit against racism, hate and injustice.
As a result, C1 provides Diversity, Equity & Inclusion training to help managers recognize and mitigate common forms of bias, maximize value of diverse perspectives and experiences, and use their team’s unique strengths to support organizational goals. C1 also offers Unconscious Bias and Managing Bias trainings to explore how judgments and behaviors toward others that employees may not be aware of can impact both their workplace and personal experiences.
