We are committed to a diverse work environment. Our goal is to hire the best people; foster a work environment that allows them to achieve their full potential; support them through training and job flexibility; and treat everyone with dignity and respect. Together we are building an environment that expands our thinking; challenges for all to reach new levels; and values our ideas, creativity and individuality
A number of networks/associations are available to employees to provide them with a forum to interact with colleagues, discuss issues and learn from others within the organization. These organizations include:
Women Unlimited - Our company has been an active sponsor of Women Unlimited, an external national program that supports the development of high-potential women leaders. Each year, women across the organization participate in monthly learning sessions and in mentorship relations with external business people.
Women Unlimited Alumnae Network - This organization was started by Women Unlimited "graduates" to give back to the broader female population. Begun as a grassroots organization, it now includes officers and executive sponsorship. A steering committee of senior leadership works closely with the network to support its goals of building leadership skills to a broader female population. The network hosts several events a year to promote business growth and leadership development.
Diversity Mentoring Program - Our company has a formal process focused on developing women and minority employees' leadership abilities and business knowledge. Through a structured group mentoring experience and a series of development workshops over a nine-month period, participants gain exposure to senior leaders while further developing their leadership skills.
