Diversity, equity and inclusion is part of everything we do.

“Diversity makes our business better. It helps people feel valued, and it helps us understand and reach the wide array of customers we serve. We focus on diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) because it’s the right thing to do. It’s core to who we are, and it allows us to achieve our full potential as an organization.”

“I have never had greater clarity of my role. Our purpose as an organization is to power human potential. My job, quite simply, is to make sure that holds true for everybody,” he said.
