Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace Policy

UnTapped Craft Supply is dedicated to fostering, promoting, and preserving a culture of equity, diversity, and inclusion within the workplace. We celebrate and welcome the diversity of all employees, directors, stakeholders, community partners, and any other persons in contact with the organization. Untapped fosters an environment that respects people's dignity, ideas, and beliefs thereby ensuring equity and diversity in employment. We demonstrate our commitment to this by providing a supportive work environment and a corporate culture that welcomes and encourages equal opportunities for all of our employees.

All practices with respect to our most important asset, our people, will be carried out with respect for diversity in mind. Such practices may include hiring, compensation practices, promotion, benefits, job assignments, transfers, lay-offs, return from lay-offs, company-sponsored programs or events, etc. will be taken without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sex, gender identity, gender expression, family status, age, language or national origin.

Cultural Competence

Demonstrating commitment and action toward a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive community requires reflection and active learning. As such, UnTapped is committed to the ongoing development of a work environment built on the premise of gender and diversity equity that encourages and enforces:

  • Respectful communication and cooperation between all employees and stakeholders.

  • Teamwork and employee participation, permitting the representation of all groups and employee perspectives.

  • Work/life balance through flexible work schedules to accommodate employees’ varying needs.

  • Employer and employee contributions to the communities we serve to promote a greater understanding and respect for diversity.

 

We do this by:

  • Embracing cultural views;

  • Encouraging positive attitudes towards cultural differences;

  • Obtaining knowledge of different cultural practices;

  • Inclusivity training;

  • Diversity awareness through orientation and policy.

We encourage employees who believe they have been subjected to any kind of discrimination that conflicts with UnTapped’s diversity policy and initiatives should seek assistance from a supervisor or owner.

Hiring Practices

UnTapped is dedicated to recruiting and retaining a qualified workforce. By valuing a diverse workforce, Untapped is committed to hiring practices that are fair and equitable and will hire the most qualified candidate for a position. We will ensure that the search and hiring process is fair and equitable so the appropriate qualifications of each candidate are the only criteria upon which a hiring or promotion decision is made.

Breach

Any employee found to have exhibited any inappropriate conduct or behavior against others may be subject to disciplinary action.
