At Quicken Loans, we believe that a diverse and inclusive culture is essential to success. Not only is it the right thing to do, but it helps us come up with better ideas, build better products and ensure better experiences for our team members and our clients.
As part of our commitment to ensuring that every voice in our company is heard, we’ve worked hard to create forums and events where team members can share their perspectives and learn from one another.
In celebration of Women’s History Month, and to honor the many terrific women leaders within Quicken Loans and across our Family of Companies, Quicken Loans recently sponsored the 2018 Rock FOC Women’s Conference.
Titled “Changing the Game,” the conference featured panels on leadership, work-life balance, promoting your value in the workplace, innovation, emotional intelligence and much more. More than 1,100 team members from throughout the Rock Family of Companies attended the event, which included keynotes from Tonya Allen, CEO of the Skillman Foundation, as well as noted speaker Judi Holler.
In addition to this special summit, Quicken Loans also wanted to celebrate Women’s History Month in a more unique way. Because the event was taking place on March 21, which is World Poetry Day, the Quicken Loans Diversity and Inclusion team asked Detroit poet Natasha T. Miller to share an original poem.
