We are committed to do MORE than provide a statement, but rather set a course of action with:
The M.O.R.E. Principle
Minority Occupational Recruitment & Education
It’s MORE than a diversity and inclusion initiative, it’s the catalyst for change and opportunity within our company, community and culture.
As a business located in the Greater Cleveland area, we see diversity in our surrounding neighborhoods and welcome a diverse workplace. We believe our company should reflect our community. We welcome anyone with a strong work ethic regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, age or disability. No matter how different we look on the outside, we all strive for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That’s what unites us: our ability to see beyond our differences and embrace our commonality.
Despite our unifications, we recognize the impact of cultural bias, whether unconscious or deliberate. We recognize the injustice of systemic racism. We recognize the inequity of sexism. We recognize discrimination against those of the LGBTQIA+ community. We believe equality is a human issue and not a political one, and we are here to simply say: all are welcome at 1st Choice Roofing Company.
M.O.R.E. Action Steps
To WORK with the Greater Cleveland community to strengthen minority career development in the roofing industry.
To PROVIDE a safe and inclusive workplace for all.
To PROMOTE education on cultural sensitivity and appreciation.
To CELEBRATE our differences and embrace individuality.
Why is inclusion important?
Because inclusion is belonging. And if you don’t have a sense of belonging in the workplace, then why are you there? It’s an invitation to bring ideas, backgrounds, and strengths to the business. It’s an opportunity for those often left out of the conversation to have a seat at the table. It’s the belief that underrepresented people deserve a chance to be heard. So, let’s open our minds, expand our horizons, share some space and learn from each other. Our approach may not be perfect, but it’s sincere.
We at 1st Choice Roofing want to know your story and your unique insight. There is only one YOU and we want YOUR input!
Because our community deserves MORE.
Because our team deserves MORE.
Because YOU deserve MORE.
