CODE (Commitment to Opportunity, Diversity and Equity)

Clarkson College is proud to join the Greater Omaha Chamber as a member of the Employer Coalition for CODE. The initiative offers employees and students the opportunity to join in a commitment to help achieve sustainable growth in the areas of diversity, inclusivity, equity and opportunity.

We invite our community members to sign the pledge and commit to increasing diversity and creating an inclusive learning environment for students and employees through:

Creating and implementing a comprehensive diversity and inclusion strategy.
Strategies are encouraged to focus on inclusive talent processes including recruitment, hiring, retention, promotion, professional development, advancement and mentorship to engage underrepresented employees. 

Hiring diversity and inclusion leadership to develop and support efforts.
Large organizations are encouraged to hire or appoint a senior staff person responsible and accountable for diversity and inclusion efforts. Smaller organizations are encouraged to appoint a team of individuals. Regardless of size, leadership at an executive level is strongly encouraged to adopt inclusive language and practices in order to ensure the greatest success and impact. 

Measuring ongoing success by participating in the assessment created in partnership with UNO.
The goal of the assessment process is to provide organizations a tool or barometer to identify areas of focus and opportunity. All reporting and analysis are kept confidential.
