Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

At our core, we believe that diversity of backgrounds, thoughts, and experience brings out the best in all of us. In October 2018, we announced a diversity impact goal to “meaningfully increase representation of underrepresented groups and ensure equity at Absolute Pilates.” To advance our goal, we are focused on recruiting, retention, training, and building an inclusive culture.

Creating recruiting/advertising practices that help ensure equal opportunities. We have put processes in place to help ensure that teacher training applicants are all evaluated for the same skills keyed to a particular role. For example, in 2019, we implemented scholarship programs to recruit clients to the studio of diverse backgrounds. We created this program to expose minority clients and possibly teacher trainers to Pilates. 

Communicating the inclusive culture at Absolute Pilates. We are proud of the diversity in our minority owned status. We have brought 1/3 of our staff from minority populations.  

 
 

We hosted a Take Back the Night fundraiser. We have worked as a staff to include trauma informed practice to help create an experience in the studio that welcoming to people that suffered mental or physical trauma.
