We believe that we’re better together, that diversity, equity and inclusion are the backdrop for a great work environment. We strive to bring awareness of inclusion in all we do; the little actions, the processes, the daily decisions. We’re at our best when every Kotisian can come as they are and do their best work.

Employee Resource Groups

Our ERGs are a safe and open space for Kotisians to have a dialogue regarding their experiences as it pertains to being a member of a certain group. We allow each ERG to set their own goals and priorities, but support groups with ideas and bring leaders together regularly to share what’s working and what isn’t. Groups identify ways in which Kotis can better support members of each community and may lead events or trainings for the ERG or for all Kotisians to attend to become better allies.

“While it may feel comfortable to work with people that look and share similar beliefs as you, there’s so much to learn and gain from those who are different. Everyone has unique backgrounds, separate experiences and solve problems in different ways. At Kotis, we value everyone and will continue to work hard at building a diverse workforce where different backgrounds and ideas are celebrated.”

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee
Come as you are, Be as you are

Our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee is open to all Kotisians who want to contribute to companywide diversity initiatives and encompasses employees, managers, and members of leadership. Those who participate in initiative planning and implementation report they enjoy working with Kotisians they don’t typically interact with in their role, as well as value the opportunity to contribute to impactful, challenging projects.

In addition to specific initiatives, committee members are regularly contributing to our Kotis community by having conversations with co-workers regarding topics like:

  • Being aware of unconscious biases in the hiring process, during employee reviews, and internal promotions.
  • Identifying areas where Kotis can be more inclusive and applying changes to our processes, employee events and recognition, and training.
  • Asking for employee referrals that contribute different background and experiences to our organization, vs more of the same.

Our Mission
The Kotis Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee aims to create an unbiased, inclusive environment in order to better serve ourselves and our clients by initiating feedback, communication, awareness, and education.

Pay Equity at Kotis
We strive to provide consistent and fair compensation based on legitimate drivers of pay like relevant experience and performance, not race or gender. Our carefully developed Career Paths clearly identify skills and experience needed for each level within a role and the corresponding pay, making career progression opportunities transparent. We include pay ranges on all job posts because it is beneficial to our current employees, potential candidates and to the overall interview process. We feel transparency and consistency are necessary steps towards achieving pay equity in our workplace.

BIPOC & Women-Owned Suppliers

We value the importance of ethically sourcing products for our clients, and we believe working with BIPOC-owned and women-owned suppliers plays a huge role in this. We’re committed to building diversity in our supplier base and will continue to update this list as we grow these partnerships.
