What employees say

Being an active member of Collaborative's Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) efforts has really challenged my mindset - my thinking has broadened and become more inclusive. Planning and executing events with a D&I focus has made me appreciate that there is rarely a one-size-fits-all approach, and this continues to help my creative side flourish. Being a part of D&I has also meant I have been able to grow the size of my network. All these factors have positively contributed to building my career here at Collaborative thus far, and as I look forward to the years ahead, I feel prepared for any new set of challenges.

Word from the top

At Collaborative, we believe that our differences should be valued and embraced. Diversity – in background, experience, and perspectives – makes us stronger: not only as a company but also as a contributor to our community. Through diversity, we have the benefit of looking at our business through various lenses.

Inclusion is equally important. It means that we offer a sense of belonging to our employees. As an inclusive workplace, we are able to innovate and foster an even more engaging experience for our people. When our employees know they are all crucial to our mission, we thrive as an organisation. For that reason, we are committed to continuously improving diversity and inclusivity here at Collaborative.

The more we progress our diverse and inclusive culture, the more meaningful our work will be, the better we’ll meet our customers’ needs, and the stronger our organisation will be at its core.
