Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging

Advancing Our Culture of Inclusion

Broadleaf is committed to fostering diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging throughout our organization. We believe a broad range of perspectives and identities positively contribute to our individual and shared objectives. These beliefs drive our efforts to develop a culture that celebrates all individuals so they can be their authentic selves in the workplace. We strive to ensure fair treatment, access, and growth for every person in the organization and bring these values to the work we do in support of our clients daily. Through these efforts, we can leverage our diversity to make a positive impact on our broader community. To champion these initiatives and measure outcomes over time, Broadleaf has established an internal DEIB Committee.

Maintaining our position as a WBENC-certified WBE, our team intimately understands the value of diversity and inclusion.

At Broadleaf, we value differences and believe they make us stronger. We believe that the key to a truly diverse, equal, and included environment in our community requires a commitment to a long-term, meticulous, and systemic approach with a focus on three main areas:

  • Our Organization

    We are committed to attracting and retaining qualified talent from diverse backgrounds and creating a work environment that values every individual for their distinctive skills, experiences, and perspectives. Cultivating a workforce that reflects diversity is one of the most effective ways to meet the needs of our clients and employees. Diversity and innovation go hand in hand; you cannot have one without the other. Innovation requires a new way of looking at things, and there is no way to think outside the box if everyone thinks, sounds, and acts the same.

    Our Client

    At Broadleaf, we help our clients achieve their diversity goals through strategy development, targeting sourcing, and reporting of diversity data. A significant advantage of our solutions is that 100% of all spend routed through these programs can be earmarked as WBE expenditure. Each Broadleaf client has an established MWBE or disadvantaged business spend target. Across all MSP programs, we average nearly 30% of the indirect spend in this category, and our spend crosses all geographies and skills served.

    Our Supply Chain

    Broadleaf maintains relationships with over 300 diversity-certified staffing suppliers and seeks diverse partners through active involvement with development organizations such as The Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) and The National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC). The goal of our program is to channel high-value inclusive suppliers through our partnerships with diversity councils and NGOs, as well as through our diversity portal. 

Our Actions

Broadleaf’s DEIB Committee has established the following objectives, with the goal of attracting, retaining, and engaging a more diverse and inclusive workforce.

  • Create a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive organizational culture that empowers individuals to share their unique perspectives and experiences and fosters respectful communication and collaboration among all employees.

  • Provide professional development and learning opportunities around relevant topics to increase awareness of DEIB issues and opportunities and promote a greater understanding and respect for diversity.

  • Expand policies and practices to increase diversity in hiring and talent acquisition, both internally and in support of our clients and suppliers.
