Echo's Perspective on Diversity and Inclusion At Echo, we value diversity and strive to have an inclusive culture, free from bias and prejudice. One of our core values is "Do What’s Right." For us that means listening, educating ourselves, paying attention to these important issues, and supporting our employees. We remain committed to continuously growing by expanding our understanding of the diverse perspectives of our colleagues, clients, carrier partners, and the communities we serve. By doing so, we continue to work toward a future marked by empathy, equality, and inclusion. Employee Resource Groups At Echo, we're committed to creating a strong culture of community, where employees are encouraged to connect with each other over shared interests. That's why we maintain several employee resource groups that allow our team members to build camaraderie as they work together on various initiatives to make a positive impact in the workplace and in our communities. In addition, Echo hosts over 40 internal interest groups where employees can bond over shared passions, such as music, fitness, cooking, art, pets, and more.
