DEI statement

As a company, our purpose is to make things — useful things, beautiful things — that make the world a better place. Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) ensures we can fulfill this purpose by creating user-centric, people-first products that are inclusive of the diversity of human backgrounds and experiences, and that we do so in an environment where every team member is welcomed, supported and celebrated.

  • Diversity reflects the ways people are different from one another. This goes beyond race and gender to include culture, age, sexual orientation, gender expression, ethnicity, socio-economic background, religion, and disability.
  • Equity creates fair treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement for individuals by establishing systems and processes that prevent the formation of barriers.
  • Inclusion fosters an environment where individuals feel safe to engage and participate fully because they feel respected, free to express their ideas, and valued for their unique voice, perspective, and abilities.

By embedding DEI into the fabric of Edenspiekermann, we can better unlock business opportunities through design and technology that make a difference for our clients and their customers, and create a working environment with a true sense of belonging.
