Diversity and Inclusion

Our Commitment

We believe having a culture that is accepting, supportive, diverse and inclusive makes us all better. In support of the culture we foster, our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion committee helps ensure we continue to make measurable improvements and hold ourselves accountable. This passionate committee of employees across the organization strives to support the group’s mission and act as ambassadors for related initiatives and events.

Our Mission

Together, we are better. We will embrace and celebrate the diversity among our employees and communities and create an inclusive environment wherein each employee and member feels accepted, appreciated, respected and valued. We will listen to diverse perspectives, continue to challenge ourselves to get better, and do what’s right for each other and our members. We will strive to move beyond diversity to equity, providing equal opportunities for all.
