Our Commitment to DEI
Propeller Holds a Commitment to People
This commitment was one of the founding values of the firm, a cultural tenet that informs our business growth, and makes Propeller unique among consulting firms.
Our different backgrounds, beliefs, and perspectives make us stronger, more interesting, and better able to creatively solve problems, work with others, and deliver unique approaches.
The Diversity of Our Team
We know that a diverse workforce and inclusive culture delivers more creative and durable outcomes, for everyone. When we do this right, it makes it possible for every individual to feel heard, supported, and to realize their unique, inspired contribution to the team.
Data accurate as of July 2022
Expanded diversity within Propeller is a primary goal in 2022. We are focused on increasing representation of people who are BIPOC across our leadership and consultant teams, and within our applicant pool.
Equity & Inclusion Practices
We believe that strengthening diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging at Propeller is our responsibility to our employees, clients, and community.
We are committed to fostering a culture where employees can be their authentic selves and do their best work. We have instituted several programs and partnerships to support our continual work-in-progress equity and inclusion practices. We know when we do this right, it makes it possible for every individual to feel heard, supported, and to realize their unique, inspired contribution to the team.
