Introducing the DEI Pledge

Dear Portfolio Company Colleagues:

July presents an opportunity to set new goals for the remainder of the year, and I’d like for you to set your own goal of signing the JCP Inclusion 2023 DEI Pledge.

Signing this Pledge is making a commitment to furthering diversity, equity and inclusion within your organizations and with your communities by taking three achievable, concrete actions by December 31, 2023.  There are two lists of activities: one section is for company leadership, such as the C-suite, and the other is for anyone who wants to be a Change Agent, committed to furthering DEI on their teams no matter their seniority. 

Some examples of our Pledge actions for the year include hosting or attending a DEI conversation, educating yourself on DEI issues, organizing a company or team volunteer day in your community and engaging with DEI issues your customers or clients care about.

Making everyone feel valued and providing them with the opportunity to contribute to their highest ability contributes to better workplaces and drives better business outcomes, and we look forward to setting similar goals in 2024.
