Throughout the month of February, Stericycle is taking time to observe Black History Month and highlight the vital contributions and achievements of Black Americans in U.S. history. “We Embrace Diversity and Inclusion” is one of our core values, and honoring the achievements and efforts of Black Americans is just one way we put that value into action.
This year, Black History Month at Stericycle includes events organized by one of our employee resource groups, Blacks Unify for Inclusion, Leadership, and Diversity (BUILD). A Stericycle community of Black team members and allies, BUILD strives to create a positive and inclusive environment for Black team members by promoting training, leadership, and mentorship while upholding Stericycle’s core values.
“Black History Month is a time in which we celebrate the impact of the Black culture, which can often remind us of the hope and opportunity we hold for the future,” says Fabian Moore, BUILD Chair and President. “It also gives us a deeper understanding of American history and the relationship between past and current events in our country.”
BUILD-sponsored activities this Black History Month include a volunteer event at a Chicago food bank, presentations on building generational wealth through real estate and another on estate planning, as well as an employee assistance program event focusing on imposter syndrome, and an art lesson hosted by Stericycle’s own BUILD Chair and President, Fabian Moore.
Stericycle has also been recognized by 50/50 Women on Boards™ (50/50WOB) and Women’s Forum of New York, both for its commitment to advancing gender parity and diversity in the boardroom. The company has also developed strategic partnerships with diverse community stakeholders, including Equality Illinois, Ability Beyond Disability, and Hispanic Alliance for Career Advancement (HACE).
