Thank you so much to the employees who joined us for the Veteran’s Day Panel Discussion. This panel has been our most attended virtual program yet. Transitioning military persons have unique perspectives and needs, and our panelists shared their personal perspectives and experiences as leaders in LST and the military. Through our DE&I initiatives we aim to share the unique perspectives of our employees, both to make people aware and to make sure everyone feels seen and considered in our organization.
