pepelwerk Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Pepelwerk (people work) is a technology and service company dedicated to creating an equitable working world.

At pepelwerk, we see people as a myriad of complex and awesome features that make each of us unique. More importantly, we work every day to do the work needed to see that vision come to life.

We are not interested in carrying forward historical wrongdoings; we are only interested in working towards an inclusive future.

We focus on reducing discrimination, racial targeting and unintentional bias in the working world. This includes access to jobs, career growth, education and economic opportunities to improve financial health.

We define equity as a social principle that assumes that life experiences are accessible to all, free from bias or favoritism.

We define diversity as a condition where there is not uniformity of thoughts, ideals, life experiences, cultural norms or ethnicity.

We define inclusion as the act or practice of including and reasonably accommodating people who have historically been excluded based on their race, gender, sexual orientation, nationality or class/income level.

We define social justice as a view that everyone should have access to economic opportunities, be governed or to participate in government and engage in the communities in which they live and work, free from bias or favoritism.

We define antiracism as acting against the systemic oppression of marginalized groups.

Blind-matching Commitment

The pepelwerk software experience and any use of ethical AI or psychometric tools are designed to first match people based on their capacity to meet the requirements of a job. It is not until a company matches with a candidate that they see personal information. It is not until after they are hired that a candidate can choose to share personal demographic information with the company.

We do this because sourcing, screening or targeting anyone based on external characteristics or self-reported race, mental capacity or other participation in distinct classifications of groups should not be a disqualifying factor in the screening process. It should be information used to identify systemic infrastructure issues that support inequitable access to economic success and/or the tools and resources required to achieve it.

Respect for Ourselves and Our Communities

We encourage our visitors, users, customers and partners to learn more about themselves and their communities.

These are resources that we believe can help us all become informed about what makes each of us unique but brings us together through understanding. Please note that some of these resources are global and some are specifically for the United States, review your local country’s resources for similar information.
