A group of FASTSIGNS franchisees will make up the diversity and inclusion committee.
The signs, graphics and visual communication franchise has announced the creation of its diversity and inclusion committee, which will comprise of a diverse group of franchisees who are a part of the global FASTSIGNS network. The committee was created to underline FASTSIGNS’ commitment to diversity and inclusion within the brand as well as the wider industry.
“Every company should value diversity and inclusion because of the richness and strength it brings to their business. Over the years, the signage and franchising industries have become more diverse and inclusive, but there’s more we can do — and as the leader in our sector, FASTSIGNS is proud to lead the way,” said Catherine Monson, CEO of FASTSIGNS International, Inc., CEO of Propelled Brands, and chair of the International Franchise Association.
“Diversity and inclusion needs to extend beyond personalities, professional backgrounds, and other life experiences, and encompass all of an individual’s unique characteristics and experiences, including race, gender, ethnicity, age, religion, disability, national origin, and sexual orientation.
“Supporting and building diversity and inclusion is the right thing to do for our employees, our franchisees, our franchisees’ teams, our stakeholders, our customers, and our industry. We look forward to expanding this initiative across Propelled Brands.”
The eight-member committee will deal with issues such as: promoting open workplace dialogue, increasing the number of minority FASTSIGNS franchisees, workplace environments, training and education, all with the intention to promote inclusive initiatives.
The diversity and inclusion committee members include:
“Throughout my career, I’ve always sought opportunities to be a part of organizations that value diversity and inclusion — and that’s a big part of what attracted me to FASTSIGNS,” said Kevin Jones.
“I’m extremely proud to leverage my experience working for an LGBTQ-focused non-profit and serving on several boards to assist FASTSIGNS in furthering its diversity and inclusion initiatives to build a stronger brand and promote change in our industry.”
