DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION

We have our ways

And we call them the Madison Ways. They’re the fabric of how we approach our day and how we treat people.

Madison Ways: 

Listen

• In client and team meetings, we actively listen and seek to understand before we react

• We are empathetic and try to see the problem from others’ points of view

• We respect the clients’ and team members’ opinions and needs; everyone has a role in the 

company’s and project’s success.

Stretch

• We are curious about our client’s business challenges and landscape through researching their trade journals, competitors, etc.

• We have omni-channel intelligence, so we can recommend the best solutions for the business problem

• We bring unique and appropriate ideas to creatively solve the business problem

Excel

• We check our concepts to make sure they are delivering on the strategy set out in project brief, both design and message. 

• We pride ourselves on accuracy. We check our work for errors and mistakes, and make sure our production files are clean.

• We meet deadlines and stay within budget for the client’s sake and the health of Madison.

Appreciate

• We are grateful for our team and the unique skills that everyone brings to the table.

• We respect our clients and treat them as a guest in our home. Without clients, we wouldn’t have a business. 

• We welcome feedback, especially negative, because we know that is how we grow and improve.

New way: 

Why did we add Include as a 5th Madison Way? 

We realized we have some work to do to create a more diverse team, celebrate differences, and create equity in our workplace. Because this work is so important, we want to create a new “way.” Not only is having a diverse team the right thing to do, it is a competitive advantage. Only through diverse perspectives, reflective of the world we create communications for, can we truly innovate.

Include:

• We will strive for representation from people of different races, ages, cultures, religions, cognitive abilities and sexual orientations in our vendors, advisors, partners and employees.

• We know as communicators it is critical to be empathic to those of diverse demographics. We take care in considering the audience and their representation, from defining voice to selecting imagery. 

• We seek to create a safe environment in which people can have curious conversations and show up as their authentic selves. 

• We strive to make necessary accommodations so that everyone feels valued and a part of the team. (ADA compliant?)

• We’ll hold each other accountable and correct ourselves as we are on our journey to create the culture we all want and deserve.
