    Culture that Cares

    We’re proud to have built a culture that some of the brightest and kindest people want to be a part of. A culture built on transparency, trust and doing the right thing even when no one is looking. A culture that wants everyone to bring their full selves to work.

    Focused on

    Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

    To make sure Sir Kensington's remains a workplace for everyone, we are working hard on building a more diverse and inclusive office community. Our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Council provides a space for team members across identities to support one another and promote new ideas to make our culture even stronger. We also have DEI Council Subteams for team members who identify as women, people of color, young professionals and allies. These will evolve and grow as the makeup of our team does.


    DEI Goals

    The goals of our DEI Council are also the goals of our company. Since 2020, all Sir Kensington's team members are expected to set individual performance goals that support our overall diversity, equity and inclusion commitments. These include:

    • Improving the diversity of our team and making sure our hiring is equitable.
    • Working toward more genuine inclusion through other equitable systems.
    • Making sure our DEI work has the right oversight.
    • Setting up the right communications structures so we can continue to improve.

    Continued Education

    To reach these goals, we know there’s a lot we all have to learn. So we’re doing our homework. As a team, we are inviting workshops, trainings and “Lunch and Learns” on topics like race and gender inequality, implicit bias and more. By learning and growing together, we hope to build the systems needed for these values to remain a true part of our culture, decision-making and impact.

    Where Impact Is Everyone’s Job

    We recently announced a commitment to link performance incentives for 100% of team members to sustainability and DEI goals by the end of 2020. We believe that aligning incentives is a key to real change, since we all consider environmental and social responsibility as part of our jobs. As of 2020, our annual bonuses will be awarded based on the company’s impact performance as well as its sales performance, and we’ll also factor impact contributions into individual performance reviews.
