Diversity & Inclusion Chat with Kari Patterson

Diversity and Inclusion, Our People, Shippers

Last year, we launched a Diversity & Inclusion Council to help create open dialogue among team members and shape the policies guiding these important initiatives. In a regular series, we’re sitting down with the Council members to learn more about their personal stories and goals for involvement.
