Just like measuring our financial health or gauging operational efficiency, GRF believes it is also important to evaluate the progress of our diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts. With that in mind, we are happy to share our 2023 DEI Transparency Report. In an era of backlash against DEI initiatives, GRF is leaning in. We believe in our team and the power of an inclusive workplace.
