Northstar’s DEIB Statement & Commitments

At Northstar Recycling, our company’s intention behind Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) is to create a more inclusive and equitable culture, business practices and methods of operation. As an organization, we are continuing the work that allows for unlearning, accountability, and acceptance. We are incorporating DEIB thinking in all our interactions including hiring, promotion, and retention efforts.

To hold ourselves accountable, Northstar utilizes a DEIB scorecard to measure the following performance metrics: Employee Education and Participation; Leadership Support and Investment; Data Practices; and Retention, Hiring, and Promotion. Each metric is evaluated on a quarterly basis and Northstar’s progress is reviewed annually with our leadership team to drive accountability organizationally.

Northstar takes many actions to promote DEIB practices, especially as they relate to recruitment, retention, and promotion. Some examples of our efforts include reviewing the descriptions and word choice on job posting to ensure our language is inclusive. Additionally, we have reviewed required skills and education with our hiring managers to ensure we are allowing for more diverse applicants to apply to the company, and we require all hiring managers to complete inclusive hiring training. In 2024, the company will participate in their first Diversity Career Fair, further encouraging a diverse pool of applicants to engage with the organization. Once employed, we support our employees through responding to DEIB-specific engagement surveys, providing educational resources through presentations and trainings, and developing Mentor Programs, Affinity Groups, and Employee Resource
Groups to support all Northstar Employee identities.
