DE&I Structure

Organizing DE&I for Success

We believe in a DE&I structure that is ground up, grassroots, and seeks active engagement from our employees.

In 2020, we launched a national DE&I Council and Regional Advisory Committees to lay the foundation for how we define and all benefit from an active focus on DE&I. These groups provide an opportunity to set direction and priorities, connect across our geographic footprint, and come together to explore how our own unique experiences can be shared to create a stronger and more united company. More than 50 employees across the Risk Strategies family are actively involved.

DE&I Council

The company-level DE&I Council, consists of a DE&I Council Chair, rotating executive sponsors, charitable foundation Chair and appointed regional Champions. This Council underscores the importance of DE&I to our culture and business strategy.

Regional Advisory Committees

Based on a grassroots approach that bridges our local and company-level efforts, Regional Advisory Committees ensure that our employees’ diverse backgrounds, interests, and priorities drive our efforts. Employees rotate onto the committee to give more people, and voices, a chance to be heard.

We appreciate the significant contributions of our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Council and Regional Advisory Committee members. Their efforts are instrumental in guiding Diversity, Equity & Inclusion forward at Risk Strategies.
