Our statement on equality and diversity.
LDR21 LLC is a United States-based company registered in the State of Pennsylvania.
In line with our values, LDR21 is committed to being an organization in which each person is valued and appreciated. We value diversity, including neurodiversity and diversity of background and viewpoints, and ensure equal opportunities for all people, regardless of any of the protected characteristics listed:
- Gender reassignment
- Marriage and civil partnership
- Pregnancy or maternity
- Religion or belief
- Sexual orientation
A safe space for all.
I believe in the importance of diversity, inclusion, equity, and belonging. And, not from a corporate virtual signaling standpoint, but rather genuinely as human beings.
I am committed to working with individuals from all faiths, religions, ethnicities, and backgrounds. I only have one rule – don’t be an a**hole.
I stand as an ally with the LGBTQIA+ community and pledge to create a safe and welcoming environment for all.
I value and celebrate the unique perspectives and experiences that each person brings to the table.
I believe that a culture of respect and understanding leads to better outcomes for everyone involved.
Having a VOICE
We seek to create a psychologically safe workplace for all by empowering conditions that support individuals having a VOICE:
- Valued – I feel valued and know that my contribution is recognized and appreciated.
- Ownership – I feel ownership of what I am working towards and, as far as possible, am enabled to work and communicate in ways that work best for me (as far as possible).
- Included – I am able to connect meaningfully with others and am included in decision-making that will impact me personally.
- Clear – I am clear about what is expected of me and where to find the resources I need.
- Explorative – I am given appropriate space to explore, fail, iterate and co-create ideas that contribute to the benefit of the whole.
Our organizational approach is based on our Mesh organizational method. Mesh is an open, regenerative culture formed around the tenets of connection, visibility and trust; employs the lenses of COG: Core, Operational and Global; and applies the conditions of ORBITALS:
- Information flow
We use skills-based hiring and develop skills-based discovery and deployment models.
What do we mean by skills?
We mean the range of skills an individual may have, including what may be called hard and soft skills, competencies, aptitudes, etc.
Why is skills-based hiring important?
We believe skills-based hiring is important because it prompts a focus on the skills rather than the individual (and the biases that can exist).
We also acknowledge that disadvantage can result in restricted opportunities, as well as a lack of formal awareness and recognition of skills. To address this, we have contributed to global skills-based initiatives that aimed to expand and improve pathways to learning and skills recognition, and it is an area we are constantly looking to improve.
Our ambition is to:
Ensure we fully understand equality and diversity, current local issues and our responsibility with regard to equality requirements
Empower all staff to respect differing viewpoints, balance sometimes differing needs and values, hold honest conversations and to identify reasonable adjustments in their own work areas
Promote cultural and behavioral actions that embed balance, equality and diversity within day-to-day business
Continually collect feedback from collaborators and staff on matters relating to equality, diversity and effective skills-based hiring
