JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Aug. 1, 2019 – Black Knight Inc. (NYSE:BKI), a leading provider of software, data and analytics to the mortgage industry, announced that Anthony Jabbour, the company’s chief executive officer, has joined the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion. CEO Action is the largest CEO-driven business commitment for advancing diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
Black Knight, along with more than 750 organizations nationwide, has pledged to actively cultivate an environment where a multitude of experiences and perspectives are both welcomed and valued, and where employees feel comfortable and encouraged to discuss diversity and inclusion.
CEO Action was launched as a way to encourage businesses and business leaders to cultivate environments where diversity and inclusion are welcomed. CEO Action focuses on four main commitments: to help make workplaces trusting spaces to have complex, and sometimes difficult, discussions about diversity and inclusion; to implement and expand upon unconscious bias education; to share best practices on diversity and inclusion, as well as those which have proved unsuccessful; and to create and share strategic inclusion and diversity plans with CEO Action’s board of directors.
The organization also created the “I Act On” pledge, which individuals can make to demonstrate a conscious commitment to promote more diverse and inclusive behaviors in their everyday lives. All Black Knight employees have been invited to commit to the pledge.
“We live in a world of complex divisions and tensions that can have significant impact on our work environment,” said Jabbour. “By working together to achieve diversity and inclusion within our workplaces, industries and the broader business community, we can cultivate meaningful change in our society, while improving corporate performance and driving employee engagement.”
