FASTSIGNS Continues to Expand, Focused on Emphasizing Diversity and Inclusion

FASTSIGNS Continues to Expand, Focused on Emphasizing Diversity and Inclusion

FASTSIGNS, the leading sign, graphics, and visual communications franchise, continues to expand, with a continued focus on improving the diversity and inclusion of its organization.

To this end, FASTSIGNS has formed a Diversity and Inclusion Committee composed of a diverse group of FASTSIGNS franchisees selected from the brand’s global network. This committee was created to foster an environment that promotes and prioritizes diversity and inclusion within the FASTSIGNS system and the broader signage and franchising industries.

“Throughout my career, I’ve always sought opportunities to be a part of organizations that values diversity and inclusion — and that’s a big part of what attracted me to FASTSIGNS,” said Kevin Jones, franchisee at FASTSIGNS of Santa Rosa and Petaluma, California, and member of the Diversity Committee. “I’m extremely proud to leverage my experience working for an LGBTQ-focused non-profit and serving on several boards to assist FASTSIGNS in furthering its diversity and inclusion initiatives to build a stronger brand and promote change in our industry.”

The committee is comprised of eight members who will tackle subjects such as the number of minority franchisees within the FASTSIGNS system, promoting more open dialogue and collaboration, workplace environments, training protocols, education, and other topics with the goal of creating more inclusive initiatives. Additionally, the committee is constantly working to ensure diverse individuals can lead a rewarding career at FASTSIGNS International and FASTSIGNS locations.

“Every company should value diversity and inclusion because of the richness and strength it brings to their business,” said Catherine Monson, CEO of FASTSIGNS International, Inc., CEO of Propelled Brands, and chair of the International Franchise Association. “Diversity and inclusion need to extend beyond personalities, professional backgrounds, and other life experiences, and encompass all of an individual’s unique characteristics and experiences, including race, gender, ethnicity, age, religion, disability, national origin, and sexual orientation.”
