We Stand Together to Make a Positive Impact

Every day, we're working to enhance our workplace and communities through diversity, inclusion and social impact

Our Values

Respect for everyone is a standard, not an objective. We support each other so we can use our time to do the things that matter inside and outside of work. We genuinely care about the well‐being of others and make a difference by giving our time and resources. We achieve more collectively than we ever could individually.

Our United Initiative

In 2013, Veterans United launched the United Initiative, our diversity and inclusion program. It isn't a "check the box," and the impact extends beyond our walls into the community.
