Our People

We greatly value inclusion, diversity and encourage the mutual respect of others. We condemn all forms of racism, discrimination, hatred and inhumanity. These toxic forces undermine the values we hold dear and work exhaustively to cultivate in our company and our communities.

Dr.-Shirley-Knowles

At Progress, we define inclusion as a state of being valued, respected and supported. In practice, we focus on the needs of every individual and we work hard to create the right conditions for each person to excel. As a global company, our diversity comes naturally and that wonderous mix of humanity is one of our greatest strengths.
