“Our business is diversity. We thrive on it. We celebrate it. And we encourage all of our employees to embrace and share their ethnic and cultural differences with one another.”
We want our employees to feel that CQ fluency is a place where they can come to work and be themselves. Because, it is their diversity that is our main strength. From a company standpoint we are members of many diversity-focused organizations dedicated to the benefit of individuals, small business, women-owned business, and supplier sourcing. We benefit from them and we buy from them.
It’s our company’s policy to always include certified minority and diversity businesses when buying products and services. We support companies that support diversity. We are a group of diverse individuals who realize what can be achieved when you are part of a strong team. And at CQ fluency, our diversity policy includes a commitment to making a positive impact everywhere we go around the world.”
