Working at Cooke

Cooke's Diversity and Equity Statement

Diversity Equity Inclusion and Belonging 

Cooke is committed to fostering a workplace community that embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). We are dedicated to creating an environment where all individuals, regardless of their backgrounds, identities, or experiences, can thrive and succeed.

We celebrate diversity through a wide range of perspectives, life experiences, cultures, backgrounds, and ideas, understanding that it enriches our organization, drives innovation, and enhances our ability to serve our students and their families.

Cooke  acknowledges that systemic inequalities exist, and we are dedicated to addressing them as we strive to provide equal opportunities, fair treatment, and access to resources for all individuals, removing barriers that may impede their progress and potential.

It is our goal to promote a sense of belonging for all and we will work tirelessly to foster an inclusive culture where every member of our organization feels valued, respected, and empowered to bring their authentic selves to work, by ensuring that everyone’s perspectives are heard and considered.

Our commitment to DEI extends beyond words as we hold ourselves accountable for progress through:

  • Educating and Training: Providing ongoing DEI education and training for all members of our organization to foster a deeper understanding of these principles and their application in our daily work.
  • Recruitment and Retention: Actively seeking diverse talent, eliminating bias from our recruitment processes, and creating an environment where all employees can thrive and grow in their careers.
  • Community Engagement: Engaging with and supporting initiatives, organizations, and causes that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion within our communities.

We acknowledge that the journey towards full diversity, equity, and inclusion is ongoing and that there will be challenges along the way. However, we are unwavering in our dedication to creating a more inclusive world within our organization and beyond.

Take the next step and join us at Cooke.
