OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION
FranklinCovey’s Focus on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
FranklinCovey is a company built on culture. We know that the strongest and most innovative cultures intentionally build diverse teams and cultivate a sense of belonging across those teams.
In order to accomplish our mission — to enable greatness in people and organizations everywhere — FranklinCovey is committed to increasing diversity across all dimensions in our ranks, ensuring an inclusive culture, and investing in equity across our organization. With more than 2,000 associates globally and content delivered in more than 150 countries, it is critical that FranklinCovey reflect the population we serve in order to best connect to their needs in support of our mission.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are in strong alignment with FranklinCovey’s core mission and values. As our CEO, Bob Whitman, states:
Our stated mission is to unleash greatness in people and organizations everywhere. As I often share, there are two truths inherent to this mission. First, that there is greatness in everyone. And second, that it can be systematically unleashed through the proper application of paradigms, principles, and practices.
One of those principles is that no matter how we look, where we come from, or what we believe, we are given equal opportunity to be great! The principles we espouse and embrace include equality, fairness, potential, love, and human dignity. Some of the practices we teach are building our own self-awareness so we can recognize our biases and get better, cultivating connections through empathy and curiosity and being courageous during difficult times. Our content is focused on removing the barriers that diminish people’s potential, and bringing down the walls that separate people. [In order to read the CEO’s full letter, please follow this link.]
FranklinCovey works with clients every day to steward diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives bolstered by our learning programs. And we know that creating a diverse workforce and championing diversity within our own walls at FranklinCovey is crucial to our success.

We actively seek a wide range of people to join FranklinCovey because we know that diverse perspectives lead to stronger teams, stronger culture, and a stronger ability to serve our diverse client base. The diversity we seek includes gender, race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, nationality, veteran status, ability, religion, and cultural backgrounds as well as different experiences, interests, and ways of thinking. And we are committed to recruiting and advancing diverse top talent and cultivating a gender-balanced and racially and ethnically diverse leadership team.
We believe that people are inherently capable and aspire to greatness. We foster a culture of transparency where our associates can thrive and have opportunities to develop and advance their careers through initiatives such as regular contribution conversations and internal mentorship programs. We look for ways to actively eliminate barriers that prevent them from achieving greatness through best practices such as regularly audited compensation plans to ensure pay equity, bonding leave for new mothers and fathers, and reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities.
We are committed to every FranklinCovey associate feeling respected, included, and truly valued. We treat each person with whom we work as a true partner and seek to understand their unique individual thoughts and needs. We foster a culture of inclusion and connection through leader training, employee resource groups, and unlimited employee access to all our content, including leadership and unconscious bias training.
At FranklinCovey, we recognize the moral imperative, the strategic alignment, and the tangible business benefits of our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion efforts. While we are making great progress, we remain dedicated to our ongoing learning and improvement so that FranklinCovey will continue to be the workplace of choice for achievers with heart.
