Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

puzzle D&I

Our Commitment

At CrossCountry we embrace and value our individual experiences, capabilities, talents, and perspectives by fostering and promoting a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Our people are our most valuable asset, and our individual differences are our greatest strength. This difference in background, experiences, knowledge, and opinions leads to better ideas, solutions, and results.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Action

Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives must be demonstrated through not only our words, but also our actions. In an effort to be more intentional and focused on creating and nurturing an environment where every employee feels respected, valued, and appreciated, we established a clear set of objectives to measure our progress and infuse it into the fabric of our company. These objectives guide our strategy and ability to achieve greater diversity through building communities, awareness, and training.

Network of Women

The NoW group inspires women with diverse backgrounds to support, foster new connections, lead with compassion, and empower and celebrate each other.


The LatinX group attracts, develops, and retains top Hispanic/ Latinx talent, and shares Hispanic/ Latinx culture with people of all backgrounds to promote cultural diversity and awareness.


The LGBTQIA+ group exists to promote awareness and education, foster understanding, support the broader LGBTQIA+ community, and help shape our firm’s culture of inclusivity and advancement for all.


The Network of Asian Professionals and Allies group recruits, retains, and reinvests in the Asian and Pacific Islander staff across the company.


The Military and Veteran Support group aids veterans and military families across the firm and the community while sharing lessons learned from their military experience.

Our People & Stories

“It was important for me to find a company that welcomed my authenticity and my multifaceted perspective. At CrossCountry, I can express my whole self not only as the Chair of the DE&I Committee but also as part of my

client teams and projects.”

“Starting with my interview process, CrossCountry's 'people first' approach made me feel welcome because everyone I talked to was genuinely interested in understanding me as an individual and not just another resource. As the firm has grown, we haven’t lost sight of what makes our culture so valuable: our people. Establishing and being a part of the DE&I Committee is an important part of making sure everyone is able to feel 'at home' in the same way I did.”

Lisbeth Immel, Partner DE&I COMMITTEE
