We welcome teammates of all backgrounds and identities, as they represent the rich diversity of the communities we serve across the country. Because of this, we can and must do more to create an organization that fosters a sense of belonging and inclusion for all.
Diversity includes all the ways in which people differ, encompassing the different characteristics that make one individual or group different from another.
Equity is the fair treatment, access, opportunity and advancement for all people, while at the same time striving to identify and eliminate barriers that have prevented the full participation of some groups.
Inclusion is the act of creating environments in which any individual or group can be and feel welcomed, respected, supported and valued to fully participate.

At Envision we are focused on four primary areas to build and advance a more diverse, equitable and inclusive environment. Each area is led by a team of committed employees. The focus areas are:
Advancing these principles requires accountability and leadership across our entire organization. Envision’s DEI efforts are led by members of our executive team, guided by a diverse advisory council from across the organization, all managed by a dedicated DEI Program Director.
