Where APCO Stands Today (North America)
It is long past time to take meaningful action to root out systemic racism and injustice in America. In 2020, APCO Worldwide’s global and North America leadership reaffirmed its commitment to help to create a more equitable society, where—together—we challenge the confines of history and shatter the societal norms that have fueled a system that works hard for some, but was designed to fail for far too many.
APCO has a deep heritage of diversity, equity, inclusivity and bringing people together for change. We at APCO are proud of our core values we put forth and live through our work and daily lives—boldness, inclusivity, curiosity and empathy.
More than 30 percent of APCO’s North America leadership are people of color. Additionally, approximately 21 percent of senior-level, 30 percent of mid-level and 46 percent of junior-level APCO employees in North America are people of color. A detailed breakdown of the overall composition of APCO staff in the region by race is available in the following graphics.
While pleased with the progress we have made, we know there is so much more to do to create true systemic change. We are committed to doing more.
