Diversity & Inclusion


A diverse workforce makes us strong; an inclusive one makes us stronger.

Diversity is about acknowledging and celebrating who we are as individuals. At Cook, we strive for full participation from all our employees, of every sex, gender identity, race, age, sexual orientation, pregnancy status, national origin, religious affiliation, veteran status, ability, political belief, and class. We know that a diverse workforce provides our teams with a wide range of experience, knowledge, and strengths. We value a diverse cross section of thoughts and opinions to ensure our company culture stays balanced and strong.

But we understand that just welcoming diversity isn’t enough; we must always be inclusive in everything that we do. We have to ensure that who you are, where you are from, and what path you took to get you here doesn’t impact your path moving forward and upward at Cook.

Proactive team focused on equity

To take our diversity and inclusion efforts a step further, we formed the Equity Task Force. Designed to focus effort on the present need for positive change, our global task force has a mission: to ensure the Cook environment is full of empathy and compassion and free of barriers due to differences. This effort is based on one of our company values—to treat everyone with respect—and aligned with our position on racism.

The task force is committed to the following goals:

  • Laying the foundation for increasing our awareness of equity issues and making the following proactive changes:
    • Modifying our policies
    • Training everyone on recognizing bias
    • Setting clear expectations for managers
    • Changing how we recruit and hire new employees
  • Removing barriers that might limit opportunities—we want all Cook team members to feel able to explore their full potential
  • Expanding our commitments beyond our walls to engage more with our communities in the important work of increasing opportunities for everyone
