We Stand Against Racism
DentaQuest is proud to sign onto the YWCA’s national Stand Against Racism campaign.
This important campaign raises awareness about the negative impact of institutional and structural racism in the communities we live in and work.
Inclusion in the workplace is so important because by working collectively we can cultivate a trusting environment where all ideas are welcomed and employees feel comfortable and empowered to discuss diversity and inclusion.
DentaQuest does not discriminate. More importantly, we celebrate and appreciate the differences as they make us stronger. We need to do away with all labels but one, DentaQuest. At DentaQuest, we are one inclusive team working together to improve the oral health of all.
In support of this important campaign, we are designating the week of April 23 to Stand Against Racism. Employees are encouraged to post their own pledge on the internal blog and via social media by stating: I commit to helping eliminate racism in 2018 by ensuring (fill in the blank). #Stand2018campaign
I, Steve Pollock, commit to championing diversity and inclusion at DentaQuest to build a culture and environment where team members can fully engage to improve the oral health of all.
Pollock added, "Thank you to the DentaQuest African American Network employee resource group for bringing this important pledge to my attention. I am proud to stand with you and others in the community."
