MDK Vice Chairman Fernando Aguirre Affirms Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Pledges $500,000 through 2025 to community-based organizations - with an emphasis on those centering their work on racial equity and/or social justice
"MDK remains committed to diversity, equity and inclusion - for our people, for our customers, for our communities - and to being clear and intentional about that commitment. We believe that facing racial issues, taking concrete steps to address them and leaning forward as a company to do our part is a corporate and civic imperative,"
MDK' Commitments to Promote Racial Equity and Support Social Justice span five core areas - People, Customers, Communities, Advocacy and Leadership - with multiple, specific commitments for each. These include:
Our People - We will build long-lasting relationships with historically Black colleges and industry associations to provide better access to MDK jobs.
Our Clients - We will work to be the most inclusive advocacy firm in the country by offering products and solutions that help more Americans achieve financial freedom and build generational wealth.
Our Communities - We will build a new, ongoing scholarship grant that specifically benefits Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) students starting in 2021.
Our Advocacy - We will be a productive corporate voice on issues that disproportionately impact BIPOC communities, with a specific focus on housing and homelessness and federal level police reform and voter accessibility.
Our Leadership - We will steadily and intentionally grow racial diversity throughout our enterprise, including at our senior leadership levels.
