Originally published in Maximus' 2023 diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) Report.

Our 2023 DE&I goals have focused on building and sustaining belonging. Two critical components of this goal have been launching three additional employee resource groups (ERGs): VETS (family and friends of Veterans), Prism (LGBTQIA+), and ¡MÁXIMO! (Hispanic, Latino, and Latinx), and expanding MentorU, our premier mentorship program. In the past year, we also leveraged our internal and external relationships to strengthen existing connections and forge new pathways for diverse talent. We launched a collaboration with local colleges and universities, including historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs), called the Greater Impact Experience. This effort supports increased access to and awareness of meaningful career experiences and pathways for local university and HBCU students and alumni.

During 2023, we further explored supplier diversity and committed to promoting an inclusive approach to procurement. After gathering feedback from stakeholders across the business and creating a framework for a supplier diversity program, we selected a vendor for a one-year data collection and analysis pilot phase. We maintain an ongoing partnership with our Global Ethics & Compliance team to ensure we follow best practices for building audits and education related to DE&I topics and needs. We have also helped facilitate meaningful education and engagement for supporting Individuals with Disabilities (IWDs) and Veterans, particularly through dedicated Community Conversations.
