Partners in Diversity & Inclusion

Advancing bias-free workplaces.

The mission of the Partners in Diversity & Inclusion initiative is to help our member companies attract, develop and retain a diverse workforce and to create a culture within the Marketplaces Industry in which all people are valued.

Partners in Diversity & Inclusion (PIDI) is a forum for ICSC members to constructively discuss the state of diversity in the marketplaces industry and explore how to build more inclusive workplace cultures.

Diversity is the mix of human differences, such as race, gender, age, cultural background, physical abilities and disabilities, religion and sexual orientation.

Inclusion is cultivating a collaborative environment, in which all people feel, and are, valued, to help drive innovation and growth.

Vital to long-term success, diversity and inclusion must be embedded in all business processes.
