FanX is built upon mutual respect, and we are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive community by fostering a culture that embraces diversity in everything we do. Diversity includes important interrelated and intersectional dimensions of human identity such as race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, socio-economic status, nationality, citizenship, religion, sexual orientation, ability, and age.
Vision: Creating a diverse and inclusive convention so that fans and stakeholders from all walks of life are welcome
Our goal is to attract, develop and retain convention participants from all walks of life and backgrounds. This requires an organization to have a culture of inclusion where all individuals feel respected, are treated fairly, and feel like we have great things to offer them that meets their needs.
Mission: To build and create a diverse and inclusive convention by embracing and embodying these principles from the top.
This requires all employees, volunteers and stakeholders to do their part. Management must possess diversity and inclusion competencies to lead and manage an engaged workforce. Others must treat their colleagues with respect by listening to different viewpoints, opinions, thoughts and ideas and embracing a culture of inclusion.
Strategic Objectives: To support the realization of our vision and mission, we have established the following strategic objectives:
Diversity – Improve the representation of women and minorities at all levels of the organization and integrate people with disabilities and Veterans by driving talent acquisition and management practices to achieve results
Inclusion – Create an inclusive environment that fosters creativity and innovation and promotes fan engagement through awareness and inclusive leadership skills training, and promoting inclusive and diversity topics, guests, and communities.
Communications – Ensure that Diversity & Inclusion initiatives, actions, and results are transparent to all key stakeholders
External Relations – Engage various external stakeholder groups that support and serve FanX’s values and interests including our diversity suppliers
Accountability – Hold leadership accountable for Diversity & Inclusion goals and objectives.
