Builders Newsletter - Making steps towards a DEI aware universe
By Michael van Lier • Issue #11 • View online
As our teams keep growing, we are making efforts to shape a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive future for our studio and ventures. We believe that as a studio, we have the responsibility to bring different perspectives together and create something remarkable. The only way to achieve this is by listening to our teams and finding the right way to shape the DEI culture together.
Are you curious about DEI and what it stands for at Builders? Read our DEI commitment and follow our progress towards a DEI aware universe in the upcoming editions of this newsletter.
