Following the social and racial unrest the United States experienced in the summer of 2020, CRA took stock of its organizational values and examined our impact on the community. This exercise resulted in adoption of a CRA Values Statement, which lays the groundwork for CRA’s advancement of diversity and inclusion, as well as addressing the environmental challenges the industry faces.
As we continue to build on these values, CRA President & CEO John Bode took the step of signing the CEO Action Pledge. By signing on to this commitment, CRA is pledging to take action to cultivate a workplace where diverse perspectives and experiences are welcomed and respected and where employees feel encouraged to discuss diversity and inclusion. The collective of nearly 2,000 signatories have already shared more than 1,400+ best known actions, exchanging tangible learning opportunities and creating collaborative conversations.
CRA’s Board of Directors fully supports the steps we are taking as an organization. In fact, we follow their example.
We would like to keep an open dialogue on ways we can advance diversity, equality and inclusion in agriculture. We look forward to working with you and our community on these important issues.
