Making DEI Part of Our DNA
“At Iron Mountain, it is important that we create a culture where diversity, equity, and inclusion is in our DNA, where the words we say are matched by a universal sense of belonging, where every person feels their contributions are valued, their voices are heard, and all employees have the opportunity to achieve their goals and meet the needs of our customers,”
says Charlene Jackson, Iron Mountain’s Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer, in a recent interview with REIT Magazine.
“Our leaders’ willingness to embark upon this difficult and courageous culture transformation journey is what makes Iron Mountain’s approach to DEI unique,” Jackson says. “They understand we must audit our systems, processes, practices, and policies and make the changes necessary to ensure they are inclusive; to assess our demographics, attitudes, and behaviors and hold everyone accountable. Because, after all, this cultural transformation will benefit all of our stakeholders–employees, customers, investors and board members.”
