A Message from Olivia Breen, EDI Ambassador for the STR Group
“ I am delighted to be an ambassador for the STR Group’s EDI initiatives and I thoroughly enjoy working with them on our shared ethos of Creating Opportunity Together, it is something that is really important to me. As you can imagine, I love being part of a team as being an athlete means that I work alone most of the time, combine that with being a part of a team that is working towards the greater good and who is passionate about creating a culture of openness, equality, diversity, inclusion and equity in the workplace…it’s a perfect fit.”
What is EDI?
Ensuring everybody has an equal opportunity and that no one is treated differently or discriminated against because of their characteristics.
The unique attributes that individuals bring to the workplace are those most visible or commonly discussed; such as gender, race, age, and ethnicity, as well as those less visible or discussed such as class/status, work-life issues, sexual orientation or disability.
The capacity to include difference. The action or state of including or being included within a group or structure.
