Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in Action

What is DEI?

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) serve as a framework for companies to establish supportive and inclusive workplaces that embrace employees’ unique identities and experiences. Additionally, DEI provides organizations with the structure to comprehend, support, and anticipate the needs of customers or clients from diverse backgrounds.


Creating inclusive workplaces where every individual feels comfortable, safe, and supported, regardless of their background, is crucial for fostering a positive work culture. At RGI, we are committed to upholding diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in our workplace through initiatives led by our dedicated DEI committee. We prioritize continuous learning and actively seek ways to implement DEI principles, believing it leads to increased understanding of one another and stronger, more effective teams that drive performance and innovation.

Below are free DEI courses to help foster a more inclusive workplace:
