Diversity and inclusion

Many Origins. One Destination.

Working together

Our mission

United is committed to supporting the rich diversity of ideas, experiences and cultures that reflect our co-workers, customers and business partners. By working together with dignity and respect, United strives to create an inclusive work environment where all co-workers are equally empowered to contribute to our success.

Our customers

We serve a diverse customer base across the globe with unique traits including, age, gender, ethnicity, language, religion and physical ability. Our goal is to ensure that our commitment to diversity is integrated into our operation because it is good for our customers, good for our business, and the right thing to do for our team.
