During the month of February, we’re recognizing Black History Month by honoring those that have exemplified Black Excellence.
At Republic Services, we maintain an unwavering commitment to the full inclusivity of all people and groups in our workplace and in our communities. We value being inclusive of our employees’ diverse backgrounds, experiences and cultures. More importantly, we acknowledge the systematic race issues that drive inequality and injustice for our Black communities and are committing to do our part to address these issues within our people and the in the communities we serve.
As we begin to think about the contributions and the impact that Blacks have made in our society and we celebrate them during the month of February, we encourage you to continue our MLK Day goal of “reflection and connection.” We recommend you to participate in the 21 Day Reflection and Connection Challenge which runs through February 8. Additionally, take some time to watch the video’s of this year’s MLK Reflection and Connection virtual event. We will also highlight a few of our key business partners and our charitable giving efforts in some of the communities we serve. These opportunities are an important way that we can all continue to learn and grow and help make Republic an even more welcoming and inclusive workplace.
We believe that our culture is a differentiating factor that contributes to our success and makes Republic Services unique. One key element of our culture is the commitment to create an inclusive environment where we invite and encourage diverse perspectives, ideas, people, and cultures. It is this inclusive approach that allows us to remain competitive and innovative—now and in the future.
