CR’s Diversity Snapshot

As an organization we have a mission to advance a fair and just marketplace. Last June, amid the protests and marches in the wake of the murder of George Floyd, CR determined that we needed to look closer at the conditions of equity and racial equity within CR. 

Over the course of the year, we have been on a journey to examine the current state of diversity, equity and inclusion, as well as our own systems of white privilege where they exist in the day-to-day workings of CR. 

We have asked ourselves how we can evolve, acknowledge our faults, and build on our strengths, in order to achieve a more welcoming, respectful and rewarding environment for all, and particularly BIPOC staff.

We will not succeed in our mission unless everyone at CR can bring their full self to work, be respected, rewarded, recognized, and fulfilled.  

Understanding that this is a process and journey that many organizations are pursuing, we will be sharing our own learnings and renewed priorities in hopes that our journey may contribute to the broader effort to racial equity. 

We believe that transparency is key to holding ourselves accountable. We will continue to share CR’s enterprise-level diversity data and welcome input and questions about our DEI efforts. You may send them Diversity-Equity-Inclusion@CR.consumer.org.

As an organization with a membership of 6 million and growing, it is essential that we continue to share the data that conveys the impact of the various efforts we are undertaking to be more responsive and effective for all consumers—and to transform the marketplace to one rooted in trust and fairness.
