Hurricanes do not exist because of global warming, but there is a relationship between the behavior and patterns. In this article you will learn about how SPECTRAFORCE came together as a team during this trying time and hear a few testimonies from our Puerto Rico team.
At SPECTRAFORCE, the Sustainability Committee, ECOPHORIA™, seeks not only to educate others on environmental issues, but also to encourage them to live more sustainably. Sustainability is a balance between the environment, the economy, and society. On Juneteenth day we recognize our history and past, together, acknowledging the human rights of all people, and respect for diversity, equity, and inclusion, without discrimination based on “race, color, sex, language, religion, national or social origin, economic position, birth, among others.”
One of the initiatives our DE&I committee undertakes is – Discuss & Discover Group. The Discuss & Discover Group encourages employees to keep their minds healthy and spend free time in fruitful ways like discovering and learning about diversity, equity, and inclusion. This allows us to understand a new perspective and discuss findings. For May, the group chose “Man’s Search for Meaning” written by Viktor E. Frankl. This profound read led us through an amazing story of survival and revealed how powerful our minds are. This book has left a lasting impression. We invite you to read our learnings from May’s book club.
A company that considers diversity should do so authentically. For a company to implement a diverse workforce, there should be a time of evaluation to reflect on any bias, create educational resources for current employees and policies specific to diversity. At SPECTRAFORCE, we value diversity; Not only because we are a minority-owned business, but we see the importance of attracting a diverse pool of candidates to hire the best of the industry. Learn about the advantages and how to implement diversity in the workplace in our latest blog post.
The DE&I Committee recently created a Discuss & Discover Group and our group discussion was on the 2015 movie, The Intern, starring Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway. Despite the obvious ageism bias in the movie, the film focused on several other biases and stereotypes that resonated with each person in the group differently. Read about our learnings in this month’s DE&I blog post!
Following Martin Luther King (MLK) Day, the SPECTRAFORCE DE&I Committee organized a book club to read Martin Luther King Jr.’s Strength to Love.

In this article, we share what those learnings were.
