USLI announces the annual theme “Embrace Diversity, Equity and Inclusion” and the accompanying statement:
Embracing diversity, equity and inclusion is our shared responsibility. Our goal is to come together and strengthen our community and culture by representing all races, genders, religions and sexual orientations. Our journey must be constant and continuous. It is imperative that we take the initiative to educate and immerse ourselves in others' realities. Biases do exist and we must face, identify and address them head on. Continue to challenge yourself to look beyond your individual worldview. Acknowledge your personal biases and be receptive to others' differences. Within your team and our community, move forward conversations of any barriers to diversity, equity or inclusion. Together, we can make impactful decisions to ensure every community member has a sense of belonging, a voice and a seat at the table.
USLI focuses on diversity recruiting — expanding our network and increasing access points to diverse candidates.
