In the U.S. where I’m located, February is Black History Month, and it’s set aside to inspire, honor and celebrate African-American achievement.
This month is also a time for me to reflect about the people who, through their courage, passion and dedication, have helped to create a corporate culture that allows me to thrive in my job.
I encourage you during this month to learn more about the people and the culture it is designed to honor – their traditions, values and perspectives.
Our organization is focused on diversity, or the mix; and inclusion, making the mix work; and engagement, bringing energy to the mix. Highly diverse groups are proven to produce more innovative ideas and make better decisions – and in our company, this diversity creates a place where we can and want to bring our best selves to work.
Inside of our company we are featuring three employees whose work reflects our heart and soul. I could not be prouder to call them my colleagues, and to acknowledge what their work means to our company, our communities, our customers and our world.
