USLI ended 2021 with a fireside chat with CEO, Tom Nerney and VP, General Counsel, Shelby Chapman, co-chair of USLI’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion team, for a discussion about diversity, equity and inclusion.
2022 began with the formation of USLI’s DEI Taskforce which is comprised of a representative from each team across the company. Members lead discussions on monthly company-wide chosen themes within their own teams. The DEI team created a newsletter with resources to assist Taskforce members to spark engaging conversation.
An all-new online DEI resource library was released on the company intranet in April of 2022 and continues to grow every month with the support of USLI community members’ recommendations. Resource categories range from videos, articles, websites, books, podcasts, museums and more.
In 2022, USLI also centralized all DEI messaging by joining monthly company-wide chosen themes with FirstFriday events to create more consistent education, rally as one and inspire the community.
The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion team is now featured in both the community newsletter and the customer newsletter. This past year was the first full year the entire community participated in two educational courses presented by Traliant: “Diversity, Inclusion, Sensitivity & Racism” and “Cultural Competency & Humility”
Additionally, some leadership team members and the CEO participated in a pilot training session with the external company Diverse Force.
