Learnings from 2018
In 2018, CauseLabs joined an inclusive economy challenge to improve our team's understanding and actions towards diversity and inclusion. All CauseLabbers certified in anti-harassment training and CauseLabs started the quarterly “hour of power” to discuss inclusion challenges in the workplace. Our D&I policy will be included in future proposals so that we are creating a culture of inclusion not only as an internal team, but also amongst our partnerships.
It’s because of these initiatives, alongside our benefits and radical respect that CauseLabs was awarded Best for the World: Workers and Top Companies for Women.
