BOARD SERVICE IS A STRATEGIC INITIATIVE THAT MULTIPLIES BENEFITS AT UPS

The mission of the UPS Latino BRG, Crecer, is to empower individuals through leadership and development, accelerating growth for UPS, our customers and our communities in a multicultural world. To get the most of every hour we invest, we seek ways to combine our communitydriven culture with leadership development to create winwin outcomes. One example of engaging strategically with other organizations to multiply our impact is board service. Our Crecer members are joining boards to advance their individual professional development, open more career opportunities, and improve the communities where they live and work. As a testament to the high value our members place on these goals, in 2016 we are proud to have more than a dozen Crecer members hold board seats. The organizations they serve are diverse but have one thing in common- the desire to unite business and community as ambassadors for growth and opportunity. Boards include ALPFA, Hispanic Council of Atlanta, Hispanic Organization Promoting Education, Women Mentor Atlanta, and the Georgia and US Hispanic Chambers of Commerce. Both employees and UPS win when our valued, engaged people are embedded in the community as servant leaders. Organizations who are seeking capable leaders for board service should consider tapping into Latino Employee Resource Groups to acquire both skills and diversity.
