At Billy Reid, we believe in community. All of our employees are a part of and are integral to that community_ We understand that diverse perspectives and progressive mindsets promote professional and personal growth as well as help us deliver the highest quality product. Thus, we encourage conversations that challenge our understanding of our community and our world. Standing for equality and promoting diversity and inclusion within our business and society at large are a core value of Billy Reid.
We fundamentally believe that no human being is superior to or inferior to another because of their race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, age, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender identity, or other factor by which we define ourselves or each other. We will not tolerate discrimination or harassment against any employee or applicant for employment because of the individual's race, color, religion, sex, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, age, physical or mental disability, genetic information, marital/civil union/domestic partnership status, military or veteran status, taking statutorily-protected leaves, or any other characteristic or activity protected by federal, state, or local law.

Education & Training

diversity and inclusion initiatives, to recommend programs and practices, and to support our values and pillars.
