PIM DE&I – Areas of Accreditation

Printing Industry Midwest’s (PIM) Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) Areas of Accreditation information is for program participates to use as a guide to help achieve stars in this program. The goal of this program is not to write a DE&I program for you, but to provide you direction and a launching pad to create your own DE&I story.

How to Use This Information

Below you will see all four – CommitmentAimMomentum & Excellence – star levels. Each star has an objective, required steps, resources and the next steps you need to follow to achieve accreditation. After you finish all the requirements for each star, you must fill out a Reporting Document. The Reporting Document and additional supporting documents will be reviewed by PIM and the Diversity Coalition. Once PIM and the Diversity Coalition approves your Reporting Document, PIM will set up a meeting with you to review our findings, share our DE&I Publicity Kit and discuss next steps.



Objective: The organization commits itself to making DE&I a priority in their organization. The commitment will require time, talent, and leadership support.



Objective: Review processes and documentation within your organization that can have an effect on DE&I. Set measurable goals that will move your organization forward.



Objective: You should be seeing clear progress towards your goal of diversity, equity, and inclusion. The needle on diversity awareness in your organization is moving. 



Objective: Excellence is the gradual result of always striving to do better. Participants should re-evaluate their goals and develop new goals on an annual basis. The organizations commitment to DE&I should be part of the organization culture and visible to all current and future employees.
