Simon Sustainability Report 2020-2021
DIVERSITY& INCLUSION STRATEGIC FRAMEWORK
Simon is implementing a cyclical process of annual assessment, action, and evaluation. The Human Resources Department, led by Susan Massela, Senior Vice President, in collaboration with the D&I Council, will build out and execute an updated framework that will address key questions within six D&I categories:
Communication and Learning
Systems and Programs
SET UP GOVERNANCE
In 2020, we kicked off our D&I program by providing employees and managers throughout the organization with hundreds of D&I related educational resources, including a dedicated D&I online learning channel that supplied internal Workplace Diversity courses, books to read, and other content to share. In 2021 13 , over 200 employees have accessed and voluntarily viewed over 550 books, courses and other sources of content on D&I.
The new, employee-led D&I Council will continuously seek ways to leverage diversity and inclusion to achieve Simon's business objectives. The council will help foster a culture that promotes awareness, respect, and valuing diversity so that it can be naturally integrated into all aspects of employee work life, including learning and development, training, communications, hiring, advancement opportunities, retention, and the overall Simon employee experience.
In early 2021 we published our D&I statement and policy on our corporate website. The posting of Simon’s D&I statement helps to reinforce our commitment to valuing diversity as essential and key to our success.
