Innovation led by inclusion
By integrating diverse perspectives and experiences in our daily work, we can develop a more inclusive environment that sparks innovation and growth.
We believe our workforce should reflect the diversity of the communities we serve. Our partnership with HBCUs (historically black colleges and universities) helps recruit top talent for internships that lead to longer-term opportunities. Our Women’s Leadership Business Network field project offers insights into improving retention rates for field leaders and financial professionals. Differing perspectives and experiences must be elevated to create an authentic culture of inclusion.
Customer Care Professional
“When I started my job as a Customer Care Professional, I was scared and unsure if I could do my job well and communicate effectively with clients—since English is my second language. My manager, mentor and teammates saw more in me than I saw in myself and helped me gain confidence. They value my input, honesty and sensitivity. I am included in discussion, training groups and upskilling. I feel seen—not only because my team is welcoming and open-minded, but because I can bring my authentic self to work every day.”
“I love the values Thrivent stands for and the core of the organization. Mostly, I love the team I work with and the genuine care they have for me at work, as well as at home. When my father passed away, the people I work with showed me a level of personal support that I could have never expected. That’s what makes Thrivent a special place and why I hope to retire from here.”
