Learn more about how we're fostering diversity and cultivating an inclusive workplace for our team across the world.
At SWIDIA, diversity, equity, and inclusion are fundamental principles that shape our digital marketing agency. Since our inception, we have upheld the value of diversity, recognizing its profound impact on fostering creativity, innovation, and empathy. As a testament to our unwavering commitment, we are honored to hold the Minority-Owned Business certification from the city of Chicago and be recognized as a Diverse-Owned Business Partner by Meta.
We believe that true success lies in the ability to cultivate a work environment that empowers individuals from all walks of life. Our dedication to diversity extends beyond the hiring of minority employees; we strive to create an inclusive ecosystem that supports their growth, amplifies their voices, and embraces their unique perspectives. We are immensely proud that our workforce comprises 80% women and minority employees and owners, reflecting the rich tapestry of talents and experiences within our agency.
We recognize the importance of economic empowerment within marginalized communities. As part of our commitment to equity, we're making an effort to engage with diverse vendors and allocate a significant portion of our annual spend to support their businesses. By promoting economic opportunities and fostering mutually beneficial partnerships, we contribute to a more inclusive economy and a fairer society.
SWIDIA firmly believes in giving back to our local community. We dedicate a portion of our time, skills, and resources to pro bono work that uplifts and strengthens the underrepresented voices in our community. Whether it is through working with diverse founders, advising minority-owned ventures, organizing community events, or cultivating an inclusive company culture, we consistently strive to make a positive impact.
As we look to the future, we remain resolute in our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We recognize that our continued success hinges on embracing the full spectrum of human experiences and ensuring that everyone's voice is heard and valued. Through fostering an environment of belonging, respect, and equal opportunity, we will push the boundaries of creativity, challenge the status quo, and shape a more equitable digital marketing landscape.
At SWIDIA, diversity is not just a buzzword; it is the cornerstone of our agency, the driving force behind our achievements, and the heart of our workplace. Together, we celebrate diversity, advocate for equity, and champion inclusion, united in our vision to build a brighter future for all.
