Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity & Inclusion

 

UAC’s strength lies in its diversity among a broad range of people that represent the organization. UAC respects, values, and celebrates the individual differences (such as: age, education, ethnicity, gender, disability, family status, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, veteran status, and political and religious beliefs) that make each person who they are.  

UAC is committed to attracting and sustaining a talented workforce that reflects the diversity of the community where we live and work. It is vital to the success of the organization that employees are as diverse as the customers and communities that we serve.

Through UAC’s Diversity and Inclusion initiatives, we will continue to foster a work environment and culture where differences are valued and expressed freely and all employees have the support they need to take risks, learn, and collaborate.

UAC’s diversity initiatives are based on its practices and policies on recruitment and selection; compensation, benefits, and professional development and training.  The ongoing development of a diverse work environment and culture is built on the premise of gender and diversity equity that encourages and enforces:

  • Respectful communication and cooperation between all employees;
  • Teamwork and participation, representing all groups and perspectives.
