PRONOUNS MATTER
We encourage all employees to include pronouns in their email signatures. Pronouns are one of the best and simplest opportunities to help respect someone’s identity. We hope to create the space to enable individuals to identify themselves in the way in which they choose because we know that this promotes a culture of mutual respect and affirms our individual value.  To learn more about pronouns, visit https://www.mypronouns.org/

LOOKING OUTWARD

We're committed to doing good and great in our communities through ongoing global volunteer efforts and donations. We donate $500,000 annually to organizations that support racial and social justice, and we're excited to empower the next generation of Black talent through our UNCF HBCU Scholarship Program. Participation in The Valuable 500 and the Bloomberg Gender Equality Index are invaluable in helping us be transparent and accountable in our efforts to create a more inclusive, accessible and equitable workplace. Our brands are doing their part too and have each committed to represent 60% BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, abilities, and diversity of body types in their marketing campaigns.
