Actions Must Be Interwoven Into The Fabric Of Our Culture & Values
We are committed to the inherent promise that all people should be able to bring their best selves to work and realize their full potential, regardless of what we look like, where we come from, or whom we love. Fostering a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion in our workplace delivers on this promise.
Our DEI Journey

CEO Action Pledge

The CEO pledge outlines a specific set of actions the signatory CEOs will take to cultivate a trusting environment where all ideas are welcomed, and employees feel comfortable and empowered to have discussions about diversity and inclusion.

We encourage business leaders to learn more here about the CEO Action Pledge and consider joining over 2,000 other businesses in pledging to act on supporting more inclusive workplaces.

DEI Learning & Development

In partnership with Diversity Perspective, an organization with a specialty in DEI training in the eye care space, we developed a robust multi-year learning and development curriculum for our people which has led to an in-depth exploratory look into implicit bias, allyship, courageous conversations, and inclusion in the workplace.

IDOC Board of Directors

We proudly announced the addition of three new board members, expanding representation from minority groups and women, as well as bringing in the OD perspective to our Board of Directors. We are grateful for the valuable expertise and perspectives these members add to our organization’s leadership team and commend all our Board Members for their active involvement and contributions to our DEI journey.

DEI Needs Assessment

We partnered with PVR Coaching & Consulting, an outside leadership and talent optimization firm, to conduct a DEI Needs Assessment for IDOC. This evaluated our internal practices in three key areas of the employee experience lifecycle: (1) Recruiting & Onboarding, (2) Company Culture & Engagement, and (3) Talent Management. The results of the Needs Assessment serves as a baseline from which to measure our progress, so we may continue our journey of growth and learning.
