Our Commitment to Inclusion and Diversity
Galileo is built on a foundation of respect, integrity, trust and accountability. We are committed to advancing a culture of inclusion, diversity and equal opportunity for all, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, physical ability and perspective. This applies both internally and across the work we do. This matters to us because we believe that magic sparks at the intersections of different perspectives, experiences and identities. We embrace this in order to continually learn and grow, both as a company and as individuals.
We believe values are only as strong as the actions we take, every day. It is the responsibility of all our team members to listen, learn, and understand how to nurture a more inclusive community.
Within Galileo you’ll find a team that comes from all walks of life, varied backgrounds and cultures, and a myriad of experiences. We are committed to ensuring our workplace is one that actively promotes and reflects the diversity of the world around us, believing that this collective sum of differences is what makes us a better company, and a smarter and more effective team to support our clients. To this end, our hiring practices are continuously reviewed to ensure we’re staying true to these beliefs.
We seek to create a workplace culture where employees feel safe, valued and free to be who they are. We provide training and resources to educate our team about anti-discrimination and anti-racism, and the importance of recognizing and challenging our own implicit biases. Our goal is to ensure that these principles are actively applied to every aspect of our company and practice.
Within our market research we strive to ensure that all voices are heard. We work with our recruiting partners to rethink and update screening and recruiting practices so that our groups and interviews include individuals who truly represent the populations we are seeking to understand. We carefully craft our screener questions, discussion guides and research materials to be sensitive and inclusive and to avoid bias-based assumptions. In our interactions with participants, we create a safe space in which differing viewpoints are actively encouraged, respected and appreciated. In our reporting to our clients, we strive to honor our participants’ authentic voices and individual experiences as we share their stories.
