LP’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is central to our values as well as our long-term sustainability and success. Employees who can be their authentic selves at work are more engaged, happy, and productive. Ensuring a diverse workforce supported by an inclusive work environment is not only the right thing to do, but we believe it also offers a competitive advantage.
Our commitment to DEI is not about checking a box, nor is it an exercise in compliance or quotas. It is personal and it is real. It will take time and dedication, but we are committed to cultivating a safe and supportive workplace that bridges the racial and gender opportunity gaps and offers equal opportunity for all.
Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics requires us to treat each other, our suppliers and customers, our neighbors, and all members of the LP community with respect. LP does not tolerate any form of physical, verbal, sexual, racial, or any other form of discrimination, harassment, or abuse. Specifically, LP prohibits discrimination in employment and takes action to prevent discriminatory conduct based on race, color, sex, age, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, veteran status, or any other status protected by local, state, or federal laws. There is no place in our company for hatred and discrimination.
We are also committed to ensuring our employees feel safe and heard, and that LP operates within the ideals of fairness, mutual respect, and equal treatment for all. These principles are the foundation of our culture. The following pledge for action and action plans are a part of our commitment to DEI for all LP employees.
At LP, everyone has a role in addressing the hatred, bias, and marginalization of people. To achieve our vision and purpose, we will take meaningful actions to build a more inclusive workplace and support marginalized communities. We will be bold and intentional in bridging racial and gender opportunity gaps while working to embed diversity, equity, and inclusion in the culture of LP. Read the LP DEI Pledge for Action.
To cultivate an inclusive work environment that attracts and retains a diverse high-performing workforce to enable LP to best serve the needs of our rapidly diversifying markets and communities, the company has created an initial set of DEI action plans. Developed to address the elements of the LP Pledge for Action, these plans prioritize actions, include measurement frameworks, establish goals, and provide reasonable timeframes for execution.
LP’s commitment to DEI is rooted in organizational strategy and community outreach. Community outreach and programs are supported by LP and the LP Foundation and range from grants and sponsorships to volunteerism and partnerships.
