Diversity & Inclusion

At Cinnaire, our human capital is our most valuable asset. We are committed to fostering and preserving a culture of diversity, inclusion, and fairness. We strive to provide an environment that empowers the authentic expression of diverse voices and celebrates a workforce that reflects the communities we serve.

In the work we do, in the communities we serve, Cinnaire has a keen awareness of the need for respect, inclusion, diversity and fairness. It’s front and center in our Why

Our eyes are wide open to our internal commitment to these values as well. Our people are our most valuable asset. We believe our workforce should reflect the communities we serve.

We embrace diversity and strive to create an environment where differences are celebrated and all voices are heard. We could list all the differences and similarities that we embrace and protect, but it would be a very long list. Instead, to put it simply…

No matter who or what we are because of birth, choice or experience, no matter how we identify or what our affinities may be, we are accepted, accommodated, and validated by each other and by Cinnaire as an organization.

To say that we are stronger because of our differences is not an idle platitude. It is an inextricable part of our culture and we work hard to make sure we live up to it.

Actively Supporting Diversity

A culture that values diversity and inclusion doesn’t happen by accident, nor is it static. Our Cinnaire Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Committee works to ensure a safe, welcoming environment for all of our staff and partners.
