OUR MISSION 

Our mission is to create more diverse and inclusive workplaces, with a greater sense of belonging.

VALUES

  • Everyone is welcome! We welcome all employees, no matter their gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability, interests etc. We strive to treat our team members, partners, customers, and investors with care, kindness and respect.
  • Data-Driven. We believe data facilitates better decisions. We embrace testing and learning from what we have done. As Nelson Mandela says, we never "fail". We just win or learn.
  • Get Things Done. We have a bias for action and like to try things out. We believe in the 80/20 rule, and focus on the 20% that matters the most.
  • Scout Mindset. We believe in learning and have an open mind about the world. We are on the lookout for new data to confirm or disprove our hypotheses. We are loyal seekers of truth. 
  • Have Fun! We celebrate each other's successes, let loose, share jokes, and support each other. As a team, we like to enjoy each other's company and enjoy our days together :) 

DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION  

Uniqueness is powerful. 

We are committed to inclusion across race, gender, age, religion, identity, ability, and experience. As an inclusive workplace we aim to make our employees, contractors, advisors, and mentors feel comfortable bringing their authentic whole selves to work every day. 

We will intentionally create a diverse and inclusive team as we grow. 

  • Seek to have a diverse candidate pool for all open roles 
  • Create diverse hiring committees to make hiring decisions 
  • Mitigate bias by conducting unconscious bias training and continuing our own education about cultures and histories around the world.
  • Conduct self-reflection and assess our internal DEI readiness. Our last self-assessment was completed June 17, 2022 and is accessible here.

Equal Time is committed to creating a diverse environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status. Equal Time is also committed to compliance with all fair employment practices regarding citizenship and immigration status.
