At NAVA, diversity is embedded in our culture "We respect and encourage our employees' ideas, diversity and cultures." The diversity of our staff brings new ideas and perspectives to the forefront which contributes to NAVA's industry leadership. Incorporating the tenets of diversity and inclusion into every aspect of our business is central to driving innovation and expanding as well as enhancing the overall NAVA experience for our employees, clients and stakeholders. With employees worldwide, we recognize that our commitment to sustaining a diverse and inclusive environment is paramount to our continued success.

Our goal is to recruit, engage and develop outstanding people from a wide range of backgrounds and skills. This mosaic, in turn, makes NAVA an adaptable business partner that is understanding of, and responsive to, the needs of the clients and communities that we serve.

Diversity expresses itself in many different ways — age, gender, race, nationality, language, culture, marital status, sexual orientation, religion, belief or creed, education or disability, among others..  We strive to maximize the potential of our employees by harnessing these differences and creating a productive, inclusive environment in which everyone feels respected and valued, where their talents are fully utilized, and in which company goals are achieved. NAVA promotes an environment free from discrimination and harassment and is committed to ensuring equal opportunities in all areas of employment, including recruitment, hiring, training, and promotion. NAVA strives to ensure all employment practices are objective and free from bias, are based upon work criteria and individual merit, and meet the broader goals and objectives of the enterprise.

In order to leverage diversity as a competitive advantage, it is NAVA's policy to:
< Ensure that everyone receives equal treatment in all aspects of employment policies and working practices.
< Foster an open working environment free from discrimination and harassment.
< Employ a workforce that reflects the diverse communities in which we operate.
< Raise employee awareness by designing and delivering sustainable diversity initiatives.
< Act as an employer of choice as well as influence our industry peers and business partners to adopt similar diversity standards and goals.
