What we’re all about

VSA is made up of thinkers, designers, disruptors and storytellers. But at our core, we are problem-solvers who believe there’s always a better way. Pair your own calling with VSA’s culture, and you’ve got an unbeatable combination, wherever your career may lead.

Our beliefs

Here’s what you can expect:

  • To do our best work, we need to foster an environment where people can bring their whole selves—and be their best selves.
  • There’s always a better, smarter or more creative way. And by leaning into—and learning from—our differences, we can find it.
  • We’re in this together. True partnership, with our clients and each other, is essential to our success.
  • You often need to go deep—below the surface and beyond the brief—to find and solve the real problem at hand.
  • Work should be both personally and professionally rewarding, with great people, interesting, meaningful projects, and room to grow.

Prioritizing diversity and equity

VSA is committed to creating and fostering a workforce diverse not only in gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability status, veteran status, religion and age, but also in thought process, backgrounds and life experiences. That commitment is driven by both our values system and our business goals. Our client base is diverse, as are their employees, customers and shareholders. Only a diverse VSA workforce can effectively empathize with and serve their needs.

VSA commits to these actions in our pursuit of a more diverse and equitable workforce:

  • Fostering an environment in which employees feel comfortable having complex and perhaps uncomfortable conversations about diversity and inclusion.
  • Casting a wider net in selection and promotion decisions for every open role and requiring a diverse selection committee.
  • Committing both time and resources that help our employees understand and overcome their unconscious biases.
  • Providing access to and opportunities for participating in programs that can broaden our appreciation of one another’s backgrounds, world views and strength.

At VSA, we understand that we are accountable to one another for creating an environment in which all individuals can achieve their highest and best purpose.
