Inclusion and diversity
A diverse, inclusive culture is critical to our future success. At Slalom, we’re committed to embracing different thoughts, opinions, and people. It doesn’t just benefit our teams—it also translates into better outcomes for our clients.
Diversity the Slalom way
We want our people to bring their authentic selves to work.
Here, diversity is much more than numeric representation. It’s the daily inclusive dialogue, breadth of perspective, and participatory decision-making. From taking action and nurturing an open, collaborative work environment, to seeking more diverse representation in leadership, inclusion is embedded in the DNA of our culture and in the way we do business.
As we cultivate diversity at Slalom, we continually strive to understand and enhance what it means for our people, our clients, and the success of our company. We work hard to create environments where diversity is encouraged so each and every employee can truly love their future.
"Stephen Covey, author of 7 Habits for Highly Effective People, quotes “Strength lies in differences, not in similarities.” I love working for a company that encourages and embraces difference and seeks out opportunities to celebrate authenticity."

Attracting, retaining, supporting, and advancing the careers and lives of our LGBT and allied employees matters to us. Our GLASS (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender & Allied Employees Succeeding at Slalom) program supports this community throughout their careers at Slalom through professional development, networking, and community events.
Perfect score for equality
For the third year running, Slalom was honored to be named a best place to work for LGBT equality by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation. We received a perfect score on the 2018 Corporate Equality Index, a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBT workplace equality.Learn more
Slalom Veterans—an affinity group for Slalom employees who have served in the Armed Forces—was created to foster the diverse experience and backgrounds of our veteran community. Its mission is to ensure that veterans at Slalom are recognized and empowered by a program that helps engage, educate, recruit, and retain veterans within the company, and to extend that to our local markets by engaging with the veteran community in a meaningful way.Learn more
Women’s Leadership Network
Our Women's Leadership Network (WLN) embodies the values and focus we want to espouse as a company and within our organization. WLN’s mission—to engage, inspire, and encourage every Slalom woman to achieve her full and unique potential—provides the foundation for a strong focus on personal and professional growth.Learn more
Our local councils, which help oversee Slalom’s inclusion and diversity practices, support our leaders as they drive the diversity agenda, and play an active role in assessing inclusion and diversity issues, setting strategic direction, and prioritizing our actions, both locally and nationally. Representatives of the collective voice of all Slalom employees, members of each local council serve as business advisors who encourage behavior and decisions that foster a diverse, inclusive, and authentic workplace for all.
Widening the Circle: Inclusion @ Slalom
Slalom’s 2015 strategy set inclusion and diversity as a top priority organization-wide. As part of that effort, we’ve created a customized inclusion training workshop for all Slalom employees. It is important that we not only talk the talk, but walk the walk. We do so by giving our teams the information, tools, and resources needed to help make Slalom the best, and most inclusive, place to work.
