2019: A Year of Empowerment
Diversity and inclusion are part of the fabric of our culture at CoreLogic. We strive to provide an environment that not only reinforces our values, but makes every team member feel supported, respected and professionally encouraged.
As a part of our commitment to diversity and inclusion, CoreLogic has multiple Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), which are employee-led forums that foster inclusion and insight into diverse groups and cultures. These networks serve to build meaningful relationships that inspire personal and professional development and encourage innovation and empowerment.
Established in 2017, The Women’s Business Council (WBC), one of CoreLogic’s ERGs, helps develop, promote and support opportunities for the education, advancement and empowerment of women. The WBC is dedicated to advancing women into leadership roles by providing educational sessions, networking opportunities and a forum to discuss the issues women face in business today. The organization invites both men and women passionate about this cause to get involved and attend events. Currently, CoreLogic’s Dallas and Southern California chapters total over 300 members.
Empowering Women in the Workplace
WBC members are encouraged to participate in exciting networking and career-driven events throughout the year. Previous events centered on themes like building a LinkedIn profile, the gift of feedback and mentoring. The WBC also hosts a series of hot-topic panel discussions led by members of the CoreLogic leadership team as well as business leaders from surrounding communities. These discussions are a way to facilitate an open dialogue between panelists and audience members about a variety of helpful topics such as “How to Fail Up” and “Presence over Perfection.”
Recently, all three WBC chapters hosted events focused on the power of networking. At the Dallas chapter, the event was called “Building Your Tribe,” where Barry Sando, Managing Director of CoreLogic Underwriting and Workflow Solutions, delivered his inspiring keynote. In his address, he spoke about the importance of finding individuals who complement your skill set and support your opinions and ideas. Sando also explained the value of creating a tribe that encompasses the strengths you may be lacking. Each individual has something valuable and unique to bring to the table. Giving every person a seat at this table will help to spur creativity, innovation and the success of both you and your tribe.
The SoCal WBC including both Irvine and San Diego also focused on the networking theme at their respective Thanksgiving lunches. Tricia Murray, SoCal WBC President, spoke to the value of networking, “Networking is a powerful skill that drives empowerment. Women can leverage their network to negotiate projects, priorities and funding, seek advice, solve business problems, identify mentors and sponsors and drive career pathing. The WBC offers opportunities for women to learn how to build a professional network in a safe environment and ultimately build stronger networks with like-minded people.”
Initiatives designed to support women in business are critical to creating a genuinely inclusive culture. CoreLogic believes a diverse workforce made up of different life experiences, ideas and skills, enriches our organization and strengthens our ability to deliver high-quality solutions and value to customers.
As we kick off an exciting new year in 2020, CoreLogic remains passionate about fostering an environment in which women and men feel encouraged to bring ideas and ingenuity to our solutions, customers and organization as a whole.
