D&I at Populus Group
Diversity and inclusion has always been a part of Populus Group’s culture, weaved into the way we operate. As a minority and veteran owned business, it's more than an initiative to us; it's who we are and why we exist. While we’ve got a lot of work to do, we’ve made strides in evolving our diversity and inclusion, from recognizing Juneteenth as a paid company holiday to hosting Conversations That Matter on difficult topics to the creation of our Pride Alliance Employee Resource Group.
