While we've made strides in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging, there is always room for more. We are on a continuous journey with a number of goals. Among them are the following, which were set as the result of a company-wide Inclusion Assessment:


Create a DEIB executive vision:

We will expand and strengthen our DEIB committee, share regular assessment results, and develop a comprehensive plan supported by leadership.


Equalize experiences and encourage collaboration:

We will encourage cross-departmental collaboration and growth opportunities to expose talent to a range of backgrounds, business functions and leadership styles.


Create an inclusive leadership talent pipeline:

We will train and coach potential leaders from across the organization to build an inclusive pipeline of leadership that reflects the diversity of our talent.

DEIB Initiatives


Fairfield is on a journey to foster a culture of belonging where we interact with mutual respect and empathy. Using inclusive language and seeking judgment-free dialogue, associates are encouraged to make efforts to connect with the feelings and emotions of others while responding with kindness, curiosity, and grace. We use data to set benchmarks and use wide-reaching customer touch points to communicate clearly with all stakeholders throughout our journey to focus and deepen our DEIB efforts.

We are committed to sharing knowledge and resources on DEIB and ensuring a relevant and fresh perspective. Our Training & Development team continually offers on-demand, virtual and in-person training programs in support of DEIB topics. New initiatives undergo careful analysis for relevance and impact as we thoughtfully progress our DEIB efforts. We are always seeking ways to partner with outside expertise, historians, and cultural experts to offer educational opportunities to our associates. Additionally, our DEIB committee regularly provides direction to reading materials, seminars and more.
