E-REP Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Action

DEI Action

Business leaders taking collective action on diversity, equity and inclusion
matters more than ever.

We know there is no single formula for improving Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) that is applicable to every business, industry, sector or environment.
Nor is any DEI journey the same.  The Evansville Regional Economic Partnership (E-REP) is committed to enabling your path by providing resources and best practices.
We welcome you to join E-REP and other organizations in our shared commitment by signing the DEI Action.

We believe that openly sharing a common DEI action among community leaders enables our shared vision to be a nationally recognized place for business and talent to call home.
By working together toward DEI within our workplaces, industries, and broader business community, we can cultivate a trusting environment where all ideas are welcomed, and employees feel comfortable and empowered to have discussions about equitable opportunities for all. We will use our power, influence, and position to amplify unheard voices,
endorse policies and implement practices that lead to equitable opportunities for all.
