We evaluate our strategy and performance on a consistent basis as a measure of our success and to help guide our path forward.

Employee Networks  

Our employee networks connect employees with others who have a shared identity and life experiences. They provide forums for discussion, development and play an important role in our DE&I strategy. Open to all employees, these groups support a diverse workforce and inclusive environment. They also connect colleagues from across the company and provide opportunities for personal and professional development, networking and community involvement.

These groups focus on seven populations, including Asian, Black, Disability, Hispanic, LGBTQ+, Veterans and Women. They are led by employees with guidance and active involvement from executive leadership sponsors. All networks encourage ally membership.
