Equus champions social and economic opportunities for individuals and families and witness outcomes where these communities flourish. We recognize both internally and externally that diversity and inclusion is not only mission critical, but also:

  • Creates a sense of belonging and safety that promotes innovation
  • Ensures we not only meet, but exceed our business goals, and
  • Communicates a brand that reflects the people, businesses, and communities we celebrate and serve.

We’re committed to connecting employers with career seekers while uplifting equity by breaking down systemic barriers that have prevented many from participating in Registered Apprenticeship Programs.
