USANA’s Women in Leadership program, as well as its inclusive and equitable workplace culture, were recently honored by the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity, the Utah Women and Leadership Project at Utah State University and Utah Governor Spencer J. Cox, naming USANA one of the 100 Utah companies championing women.
This Utah recognition, called 100 Companies Championing Women, highlights 100 Utah companies that offer family-friendly policies and practices and engage women-specific initiatives that impact the recruitment, hiring, retaining and advancement of women as employees, managers and leaders.
“USANA strives to be an inclusive company and place for women to grow in their careers,” said Sheena Blauvelt, USANA Executive Director of Human Resources. “Through our Women in Leadership program, we have created a space for executives at USANA to share their expertise and help mentor and sponsor our next generation of leaders. We are proud of what we have accomplished and are excited about future initiatives that will ensure USANA continues to offer a diverse workplace and leadership team.”
USANA offers an inclusive benefit and retirement package and has a stated commitment to designing a workplace that not only enables a healthy work-life balance, but also places women in senior leadership roles.
“We know a more diverse workforce and leadership team isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s also linked to organizations having better financial performance, increased innovation, and better understanding of customers,” said Amy Haran, USANA Executive Vice President of Communications. “I’m excited to see USANA and so many other leading companies in our state foster women leaders and reap the business benefits that come with it. Thanks to the Governor’s office and Utah State for this important initiative and recognition.”
