Together we make it happen

Inclusion from our leadership
In 2022, we worked with our ERGs and internal DE&I Business Unit Councils to create anti-bias leadership training focusing on deliberate advocacy, intersectionality, and team inclusion. In 2023, we will continue to build capabilities with the rollout of our second anti-bias training.
“I loved the opportunity to connect with other leaders and to self-reflect. I learned new ways to connect with my team.”

“One of the best insights I got from the training was the evolution of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We need to have much deeper and broader conversations. We have an opportunity to get everyone around the table and create richer experiences.”
Senior Vice President, Marketing Technology, DNA
Diverse talent in our future
We don’t just look for those who fit our culture, we want candidates who will add to our culture. We’re expanding our search for talent in places we haven’t looked before, partnering with organizations to find diverse candidates locally, nationally, and globally.
This year, we recruited new talent at events hosted by these organizations:
Recruiting military members
In 2022, we hired 153 customer service agents from military families, 91% of which are military spouses.
Recruiting people who are neurodiverse
In 2022, we launched Neurodivergent Connections. We are actively recruiting neurodivergent talent to join our teams and will continue to expand this program’s reach.
Diversity training for recruiters
We conduct ongoing recruiter training and implement guidance for diverse candidate slates and interview panels.
