Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

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.

LatinX

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.

PRIDE

The PRIDE 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.

NAPA

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

MAVS

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.

BEN

Days of Giving

An annual event for all employees to participate in local community and volunteer efforts to support the communities in which we live and work.


Ongoing training for all employees to promote education and DEI awareness, specifically focused on unconscious bias.

Training tailored to the recruiting team and hiring managers developed to evaluate our current processes, highlight the importance of diversity, and uncover the potential for unconscious bias in the hiring process.

Voluntary employee discussions centered around various diversity, equity, and inclusion topics to promote education, conversation, awareness, and connection.

Implement strategic recruiting processes and efforts to intentionally increase our workforce diversity, specifically at the leadership level.

“At CrossCountry, we are committed to fostering a culture and environment of belonging. Now, more than ever, we understand that without thriving DE&I programs and an inclusive culture, we are unable to reach our full potential. Through a multifaceted approach to inclusion and equity, we strive to ensure that each member of the CrossCountry family is respected, valued, and empowered.
