PIE is committed to Justice, Diversity, Equity & Belonging
Our JDEB (Justice, Diversity, Equity, and Belonging) Leadership Team drives towards creating a more equitable, more inclusive, more diverse, and more just PIE. We strive to create a feeling of belonging – a place where employees feel safe, welcome, and celebrated.
In support of PIE’s values and commitment to our strategic pillars, we strive to be the most exceptional and sought-after workplace, and a lever for good in the Gallatin Valley. JDEB initiatives and activities are spearheaded by PIE’s JDEB Leadership Team, which functions within our ESG organizational department to support PIE’s values and strategic plan through events and activities that keep our Packmates connected, engaged, and continually learning while increasing stakeholder value and impact.
Justice is the decentering actions we take, investing our time, money, and energy into facing discomfort, learning about communities and peoples different than each of us, to cultivate a tolerant, unbiased, and empathetic workplace and community.
Diversity is the fundamental human attributes and experiences that make us each distinct and different among a group of people.
Equity is a commitment to justness; ensuring everyone is supported and has access to resources needed for success, recognizing each person’s experience and history might make those needs unique.
Belonging is the feeling of affinity, ownership, and safety in community, place, and conversation when we proactively create space for every person to express their most authentic self. Belonging happens when we cultivate an introspective and open-door environment, where we celebrate our humanity and welcome our differences.
Profitable Ideas Exchange acknowledges the historical context of the land we occupy. We live, work, and recreate on the unceded, traditional, ancestral land of more than five indigenous tribes—a widely known meeting and gathering place for Native people. We recognize the violence this land and its peoples endured and continue to endure. We celebrate that this land is still held in reverence. We acknowledge that this statement is a small part of the larger, ongoing work of fostering a true reconciliation in disrupting of the legacies of colonialism across Montana and the United States.

Our Action behind it
Each monthly company meeting, Packmates nominate one person to read our Land Acknowledgement as well as discuss actions around what they’ve done to learn more about Native communities in Montana and beyond.
