EMPOWERMENT: Take initiative. Own it. Make an impact.
EMPATHY: Listen. Care deeply. Choose compassion.
AUTHENTICITY: Be you. Keep it real. Find strength in our differences.
INNOVATION: Think big. Be curious. Challenge yourself. Disrupt.
TENACITY: Be persistent. Find a way. Never settle.
Innovation and positive change require a strong foundation of diversity, equity and inclusion. We commit to a workplace and culture where diversity is valued, where all associates have a voice that matters equally and have equal opportunities to succeed. ELOQUII is a brand that serves customers sizes 14 and above; inclusivity is central to our identity and requires the investment and commitment of every member of the ELOQUII team. We will champion these principles at all levels of leadership and decision making.
At ELOQUII, we champion an inclusive environment by committing to the following:
CULTURE: Our values of empowerment, empathy, authenticity, innovation, and tenacity in action. Through these, we ensure that ELOQUII is an inclusive and equitable space for every associate, customer and partner to inspire positive change through the transformative power fashion.
DIVERSITY: The unique identities, experiences, styles, abilities and perspectives of our workforce, reflecting communities we serve.
INCLUSION: The intentional action of understanding, supporting and championing individuals in all of their uniqueness (identities, experiences, styles, abilities and perspectives) - resulting in a culture where all associates feel welcome, safe and want to bring their whole self every day.
RACIAL EQUITY: When people of every race have what they need to thrive, and race is no longer a determining factor in shaping an individual’s life outcomes.
Formation of D&I Team that will create a safe space for everyone to bring their authentic self to work each and every day, will support leadership with company-wide D&I initiatives, and will support enhanced training efforts to educate and equip associates to inspire change and live the company’s Core Values.
Champion D&I best practice in hiring in partnership with Walmart Talent Acquisition team, by ensuring all job opportunities are posted internally first and ensuring external candidates for open positions have diverse candidate slates and hiring panels have diverse representation.
Develop a Training & Development initiative or associates that will offer a range of skill based learning, mentorship, career pathing and leadership development that will be rolled out in a phased approach beginning Fall 2020
Elevating, supporting and financially investing in Black creativity and talent
Continued and ongoing investments in the diverse communities we serve through philanthropic efforts in support of equity and inclusion. We will identify and engage with at least three organizations that support the movement for Black life. We will also deepen our connections with local communities by holding an annual day of service for associates to volunteer with an organization furthering diversity, inclusion and equity.
