Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement

The World Commerce & Contracting membership represents a pillar for better business and a better society for all. We advocate on behalf of our members to promote changes that benefit society and contribute to our collective vision of a world where all trading relationships deliver both social and economic benefit.

Our organizational priorities do not stop there.

As an Association we are resolute in our advocacy and celebration of diversity, equity, and inclusion. This is demonstrated through the diverse nature of our membership, whether it be functional, geographic, industry, gender, or cultural diversity. At our very heart, we are an organisation that challenges boundaries, removes barriers, and connects people. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are therefore critical in the realisation of our vision and mission and, as such, we are unwavering in our dedication to embed these values across everything we do – they are the fundamental principles and practices that guide us.

Our expectations are high; positive, inclusive attitudes and working practices for all ethnicities, genders, ages, religions, identities, and backgrounds must be a reflex, not only an endeavour.

 As we work to achieve the impact we desire, WorldCC will hold fast on the following:

  • Actively listening to our members, partners, and communities, investing time and support to elevate their voices and ideas
  • Nurturing a culture that recognizes, celebrates, and values all backgrounds, experiences, voices, roles, and contributions
  • Establishing practices that build a globally diverse community of members that feels empowered and supported to perform at their highest potential
  • Placing responsibility on our leaders to develop diverse and inclusive teams, to make decisions equitably and transparently, and to model inclusive behaviours

The WorldCC community is unified in our shared commitment to excellence, innovation, and social responsibility, and our work is invariably imbued with a deep sense of pride, spirit, passion, and belonging as a result.
