DIVERSITY, EQUITY, INCLUSION, and BELONGING (DEIB)

We Celebrate the Unique Perspectives That Make You, You.

3Q/DEPT’s DEIB roadmap seeks to advance our culture, evolve our talent practices, and serve as a change agent in our industry.

What DEIB Means at 3Q/DEPT.

To us, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) is more than a single initiative – it’s a cornerstone principle and core commitment. That’s why we’ve built a culture and environment where employees across all levels, locations, and backgrounds can bring their whole selves to work each day and truly feel like they belong.

Our differences help us push the limits of innovation, forge stronger relationships – both internally and externally – and positively impact our teams, clients, and communities. We’ve developed a multi-year DEIB roadmap to ensure we live up to our “Be Inclusive” core value in all aspects of our business operations.

DEIB is a Journey and We’re Just Getting Started.

DEIB is a journey and a lifelong commitment that requires constant focus, accountability, and support from employees at all levels of the organization. To bring this to life, we’ve pledged ourselves to the following ongoing initiatives.

  • We’ve implemented Employee Resource Groups based on common interests, shared characteristics, and life experiences.
  • We’ve created a learning environment for team members to engage in open and honest discussions across the many dimensions of diversity.
  • We continuously audit and adjust agency policies and procedures to promote inclusion.
  • We’ve increased our investment in DEIB to include training, charitable donations, and technology to reduce bias in recruiting.

  • We require all hiring managers to complete Inclusive Hiring Training.
  • We provide unconscious bias, anti-racism, mentorship, and inclusive leadership training for all employees.

Internal Committees Across All Dimensions of Diversity.

3Q/DEPT’s ERGs are a hub for employees to amplify their individual voices and help shape the culture with educational policies that improve inclusion and belonging. And to encourage understanding and employees supporting each other, every ERG invites allies within the company to join in the work that they do.

We currently support four ERGs and plan to launch more in the near future.
