Walnut Creek, CA, September 24, 2020 – AEI Consultants joins the growing coalition pledging to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace. One of more than 1,000 CEOs that have come together for CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™, Holly Neber is committing herself and AEI to take action to cultivate a workplace where diverse perspectives and experiences are welcomed and respected and where employees feel encouraged to discuss diversity and inclusion.
The collective of more than 1,000 signatories share best practices and exchange tangible learning opportunities via the initiative’s unified hub, CEOAction.com.
“Research shows that diverse teams deliver better business results, and inclusive cultures invite greater staff engagement and innovation,” Holly Neber, CEO of AEI said. “My personal path to leadership is a case study in what is possible when individuals feel welcomed, supported, and challenged. We’re excited to leverage the resources shared by the other signatories to the Pledge, and in so doing, move AEI forward as a great place to work.”
