Diversity & Inclusion

Promoting Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access

Trademark’s IDEA Committee

Trademark is passionate about creating an inclusive workplace that promotes and values diversity. We strive to create workplaces that reflect the communities we serve and where everyone feels empowered to bring their full, authentic selves to work. Companies that are diverse in age, gender, race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, ability and perspective are proven to be more successful. More importantly, diversity fuels innovation. We are building a culture at Trademark, where differences are valued.

IDEA stands for Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access.

Subcommittees & Interests


It is a goal of the Communications Committee to provide strategies to support and promote committee activities internally and to the rest of Trademark.  We hope to ensure that effective and timely modes of communication are utilized and ultimately engaging for all employees. We hope to educate, curate and share thought provoking pieces using various types of media.


The goal of the Training & Education subcommittee is to create consistent internal learning opportunities that promote understanding of the value of IDEA principles. We will educate Trademark and the IDEA team and inspire a distribution of knowledge by creating safe spaces for sharing. We will connect the company with trustworthy external resources and experts, and create engaging ways to learn offered to all employees starting with the first few days of employment.


The subcommittee is focused on identifying and addressing barriers within the hiring process and pipeline that inhibit a diverse workforce. The goal is to achieve greater diversity by hiring qualified candidates free from biases for or against any individual or group of candidates.
