Few companies on the planet can claim the success of being an iconic company for more than 125 years. Even fewer can authentically show their purpose day in and day out of making moments of goodness for consumers. At the core of the achievements throughout our history is the talent, energy and commitment of our diverse workforce. We are encouraged by the highest levels of leadership to bring our whole selves to work each day and to share our unique perspectives. This enables us to remain a relevant part of big and small moments for people around the world.
We’re all navigating this fast-changing environment, doing our best to adjust to the rapid shift to remote working and online learning. This can feel even more uncertain for our military and veteran community as they transition to civilian careers. This transition is daunting in any circumstance, but a fragile economy and shifting work dynamics creates even greater barriers for those who are separating from military service. Cisco continues to be committed to helping service members chart a clear path to meaningful employment, especially during these unsettling times.
ON Semiconductor is proud to announce the launch of their newest Affinity Network Group (ANG) for Veteran and Military Employees (VME). The VME’s mission is to recruit, develop and retain military veterans and military family members of all nationalities while providing transitional assistance and increasing community outreach. ON Semiconductor hopes this newest ANG will aid in improvement of current recruiting techniques and create a strong pipeline of individuals with military experience and knowledge.

Military spouses (92% of whom are female) face unemployment rates of 24%—six times higher than the current rate for all adult women. And female spouses of active duty service members on average generate 37% less income than civilian spouses.
Why do military spouses incur such a financial penalty? And what can be done to change this situation for the better?

UPS views diversity and inclusion as a top business priority.
Multimedia with summary
UPS is a global company—and is becoming even more so as much of the world’s economic and population growth continues to occur in emerging markets. We must ensure that the demographics and experiences of our workforce and supply base reflect the wide range of customers we serve. These are among the reasons that UPS views diversity and inclusion as a top business priority. We have the potential to do more and be more by integrating often disparate efforts into a well-coordinated strategy that leverages people and resources across a complex global organization.
