Social impact

Our Action for Equity Collective is committed to creating an inclusive culture that promotes and values diversity and treats everyone equitably, whomever they are wherever they are. At NOVUS, we recognize that it is the responsibility of all the members of our company, to educate themselves, become allies with, and take concrete steps together with all members of the company to ensure we progress towards a more diverse and inclusive organization.  The Collective focuses on making positive incremental steps forward, not just dialogues but tangible action towards greater diversity, inclusivity and equity through our four workstreams:  Policy, Education, Communication, Engagement.
