Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DE&I)

Quartz is committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace where the unique insights, perspectives, and backgrounds of all employees are valued.

DE&I Statement

We respect the differences and perspectives of our employees, members, and our community. We desire to:

  • Create an inclusive workplace environment
  • Team up with community collaborators to improve diversity awareness
  • Educate, build, coach, and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Be accountable and measure the impact, influence, and path of our efforts

We encourage all of our employees to keep this statement in mind:

We develop an inclusive culture, value all perspectives, educate others, show respect for all, serve our community, and evaluate our progress.

DE&I Initiatives

  • Growing Employer Resource Groups (ERGs)

    Employer Resource Groups, also known as Engagement Resource Groups, and most commonly referred to as ERGs, are voluntary, employee-led groups that focus on the experiences and perspectives of people of a particular race, ethnic or cultural background, gender, gender identity, religion, age cohort, sexual orientation, history of disabilities, military service, or other affinities. They foster a diverse, inclusive workplace aligned with the organizational mission, values, goals, business practices, and objectives. Quartz currently offers five ERGs:

      • African American/Black
      • LGBTQ+
      • Latinx
      • Military Service Member
      • Women United
  • Accessing the advancement of health equity

    We are committed to advancing health equity, and administering the CLAS Standards Assessment toward that end, as well as improving quality and helping eliminate health care disparities. CLAS is a tool used to provide a blueprint for individuals and health care organizations to implement culturally and linguistically appropriate services.

  • Implementing the Race, Language, Ethnicity, and Other Accessibility Project

    This is a multi-phased project to evaluate our current materials and services in order to obtain more accurate data about our membership and the communities we serve to better meet their needs.

  • Presenting employee lunch-and-learns

    As an opportunity for colleagues to become more aware and educated about topics related to diversity, equity, and inclusion, we offer employee lunch-and-learns on various DE&I topics.

  • Continuing to evaluate the effectiveness of DE&I programs

    We administer an internal assessment to understand the most critical work that needs to be addressed within our organization.

  • Partnering with the Latino Academy of Workforce Development

    Quartz is an employer partner with the academy, developing bilingual customer service training for individuals seeking to re-skill and change career paths.

  • Committing to CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion

    Quartz is committed to CEO Action for Diversity and InclusionTM. We agree to cultivate environments where diverse experiences and perspectives are welcomed and where employees feel comfortable and encouraged to discuss diversity and inclusion.
