- We’ve formed a global inclusion council and affinity groups for Asian & Pacific Islander, Black, Latinx, LGBTQ, women, and millennial employees.
- We’ve joined several other Michigan-based businesses and local organizations in supporting a LGBTQ civil rights initiative, aimed at amending the state’s anti-discrimination law.
