FanX® is built upon mutual respect, and we are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive community. This means 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.
To create a diverse and inclusive convention so that fans and stakeholders from all walks of life feel welcome.
Our goal is to attract, develop and retain convention participants from all walks of life and backgrounds. This means we strive to create and maintain a culture of inclusion where all individuals feel respected, fairly treated, and like we have great things to offer.
To build and create a diverse and inclusive convention by embracing and embodying these principles throughout our organization.
This requires all employees, volunteers, and stakeholders to do their part. Management must understand and value diversity and inclusion to lead and manage an engaged workforce. Everyone must treat their colleagues with respect by listening to different viewpoints, opinions, thoughts, and ideas and by embracing a culture of inclusion.
To achieve our vision and mission, we have established the following strategic objectives:
Diversity – Improve the representation of women and minorities at all levels of our organization and integrate both Veterans and people with disabilities by driving talent acquisition and management practices to achieve these results.
Inclusion – Create an inclusive environment that promotes creativity, innovation, and 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.
