24 Sep DIVERSITY & SUSTAINABILITY CHART
At B1-AKT, we promote a holistic Diversity & Inclusion approach. We believe that a company culture focused on diversity and inclusion is the key driver of creativity and innovation. Our ability to deliver excellent results is fueled by and dependent on our ability to embed Diversity & Inclusion in our corporate culture and the way we do business.
We recognize that sustainable communication is a global mix of contributions of men and women of diverse backgrounds, beliefs and cultures. Respect and be open to a variety of viewpoints and diversity of thought. Work in an environment that encourages each of us to achieve our potential and values the contributions of all.
Why Diversity is Important to Us
