Plymouth Armor Group’s Pledge to Diversity
It is our goal to create a tomorrow where people are able to punch above their weight. This means creating systems and environments that are inclusive, accessible, and motivating. We believe in putting people first. Our diversity efforts and hiring practices are rooted in this belief. As a company founded by people with diverse backgrounds, we feel it is our responsibility to take steps to ensure that our organization and industry continues to improve its diversity. Our work is central to this cause because we have the unique ability to bring people together by leveraging technology, working with people of different abilities and by continuously challenging our team to transform the way we see ourselves and the world around us.
Plymouth Armor Group has developed a diversity plan that is a crucial part of our business plan. The purpose is to uphold the company’s and state of Massachusetts’s important commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion within the cannabis industry. This plan has become part of our training process for all employees and is deeply ingrained into our core values as an essential business in the cannabis industry. Some highlights from the plan include: maintaining a company employment ratio with a minimum of 25% women, 25% BIPOC, 25% veterans and at least 5% LGBTQ+ community members. PAG has also vowed to target areas in Massachusetts that have been disproportionately impacted by the war on drugs, pre-legalization. We make it clear in our job listings that we are actively seeking people from these demographics, as well as people who have a prior cannabis conviction or are the direct relative of someone who has. Plymouth Armor Group promises to always strive for diversity and to use our voice to promote and uplift those in our small cannabis community in a way that ensures equity for those who have been denied it too long.
