A Better Work Environment For All
AMS is a business that places DE&I high on the list of our Core Values. DE&I is a convenient way of saying Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. It refers to the efforts a business is making to create meaningful, systemic change toward more equitable environment. AMS’ Chief Workforce Development Officer, Ken Wiseman, has defined the terms below.
What DE&I means to AMS
Diversity is when by design or good fortune, your mix of employees from underserved communities, in terms of their race, gender, sexual preference, judicial background, presence of disabilities, at least mirrors the community in which you do business or the community for which you serve.
Equity is when you take pride in perhaps having a low turnover rate, or a survey that tells you that you have exceptional employee engagement, but you don’t stop there, you take a stack of the termination exit interviews and the engagement surveys, and you read the comments. Who is falling through the cracks in our organization? Equity is not letting your success stories marginalize the quieter, struggling voices in your organization.
Inclusion is not ever having anyone be the last kid in the gym to be picked for a team. Instead, it is the feeling you get in the morning when you wake up and look forward to going to work because you know that your leadership and associates respect you, value your contributions, and they count on you to be a part of the team.

AMS Fulfillment Value Proposition
AMS Fulfillment knows that diverse organizations bring a wider range of ideas and experiences to problem solving, help companies connect with a broader range of audiences in a culturally competent way, and demonstrate a commitment to disrupting the structural inequities that have historically created barriers for women, people of color, people with disabilities, and individuals involved with the justice system in the workplace.
By creating opportunities for everyone we strengthen our company and our communities. By welcoming people from different backgrounds and with different abilities, we improve our performance and leverage the diversity in our organization.
We will continue to make diversity part of our DNA as a company so that internal and external stakeholders understand why our commitment matters and how it makes us successful.
