Rose International Launches Racial Justice Initiative to Advance Racial Equity

Rose pledges a $2 million commitment to help communities of color

ST. LOUIS--()--Rose International, a leading staffing agency, announced today that it launched RISE (Rose Impacting Social Equality), an initiative to advance racial equity across the U.S. to help communities of color overcome societal barriers. Rose International made a $2 million commitment to help initiate change nationwide.

Rose International assembled an internal committee comprised of executives, leaders and diversity and inclusion personnel to develop RISE. Through RISE, the company plans to bolster its existing partnerships and identify opportunities to support other organizations and institutions nationwide to bring needed help and support to communities of color.

At its core, RISE focuses on education, career development, workforce support and professional development for communities of color. Through its programs, RISE brings support, guidance and necessary resources to students, job seekers, entrepreneurs and small businesses across the country to help further diversity and inclusion nationwide.

“It’s clear to me that we have yet to achieve acceptance, humane and equal treatment for all,” said Sue Bhatia, founder and chairwoman of Rose International. “As a minority-owned business, we’ve always strived to be inclusive. Through RISE, we plan to make a difference from our standing in the minority community and bring more opportunities to communities of color.”

As a prominent minority-owned business with over two decades of diversity and inclusion experience, Rose International is a proud, active member of organizations who support minority-owned, small businesses, including the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC). Through RISE, the company pledges to further its existing efforts and help break down today’s societal barriers.
