Putting People First – Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Houston First’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Business Resource Group

Since Houston First's inception in 2011, we've had a passion for putting people first.

This focus drives us to work toward fulfilling our Golden Rule – to respect all. Creating an inclusive and supportive workplace is the foundation for achieving that goal.

We are committed to providing our team members a work environment where they can be themselves and recognized for the unique perspectives they each bring forward. Diversity, equity, and inclusion aren’t just buzzwords–they’re woven into the way we run our business, and they’re reflected in our culture.
