Our mission is to spark a new level of innovative thinking and solutions for our business that will enable us to serve our employees and customers by enhancing and advancing inclusion within our culture and our organization’s DNA.

“It's so wonderful to be a part of PLUS(+) in general, just because everyone's so loving, and wonderful, and sweet, and just open-minded and caring,” said Qamar, data privacy engineer and PLUS(+) member. “For me, the value that PLUS(+) brings is awareness of the things that are happening in our communities, the awareness of the discrimination, and how people are dealing with it.”
“The compassion that I feel from our community, the sense of comradery and a true representation of family values is something I think is very important,” said Amanda, quality control verification specialist and PLUS(+) member. “It's very nurturing and healthy to have that.”
