Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)


Mission Statement:

BELIEF — Black Employees Leading in Inclusion, Excellence, and Financial Empowerment — creates and emphasizes awareness, ally building, and action around interests and issues specific to the African American and African ancestry community. Our mission is to empower and maximize diverse talent while also leading change in our communities. We stand firm in the belief that investing in diverse talent through professional development, cultural and community engagement, and allyship is the key to building sustainable employee, market, and community success.

Danae McGee, BELIEF Team Lead

“When USAble Life initially announced the formation of the Inclusion Council and Employee Resource Groups, I was really excited to have a chance to make a difference in the workplace. I have always believed that an inclusive and diverse work environment is an environment that people can thrive in. My goal as the lead of the BELIEF ERG is to be the voice of the Black employee and make sure their voices are heard.”

Danae McGee — BELIEF ERG Lead


Mission Statement:

ENABLED – Educate and Navigate Awareness Between Leaders and Employees about Disabilities — improves corporate awareness and removes stigmas about our customers and colleagues caring for or living with visible and invisible disabilities. We celebrate, empower, and inspire a diverse workforce through disability inclusion and understanding, equitable access, accommodations, and the creation of a safe culture.

Danae McGee, BELIEF Team Lead

“When we can remove the stigmas related to disabilities through education and awareness, we help people understand that having a disability is not a limitation, it’s an opportunity. Having a disability, regardless of whether the disability is visible or invisible, does not limit us; it provides a different perspective and frankly demonstrates resilience, determination, and courage. I find that those same characteristics are needed to face life’s challenges and succeed in business. I have always believed that we all can make a difference; I am committed to creating opportunities to support others in being change-makers and creating an inclusive space for all.”

Christina Trimble — ENABLED ERG Lead

USAble Life’s UniteABLE ERG strives to promote awareness and understanding of issues that affect the company’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) employees and the broader LGBTQ+ community. UniteABLE seeks to provide opportunities for professional development and mentorship, support cultural awareness, and offer networking opportunities for LGBTQ+ employees, friends, and allies.

Ashley Chism, UniteAble Lead

“When people are embraced for who they are, everyone benefits. In a workplace where people can be authentic, everyone wins (most importantly, our teammates and our customers). I am dedicated to making the spaces I participate in more inclusive, and am committed to using my privilege to make things more equitable for all. I am honored to serve our LGBTQ+ teammates and customers and to lead the UniteAble ERG in making a meaningful difference at USAble Life.”

Ashley Chism — UniteAble ERG Lead


Mission Statement:

The mission of the Women’s Initiative for Success and Equity (WISE) ERG is to cultivate an inclusive environment for the women of USAble Life. WISE provides a setting that promotes opportunities for women and their colleagues to enrich meaningful relationships, achieve personal development goals, and enhance skills through networking, mentorship, collaboration, and discussion.

Misty Philpott, WISE Team Co-lead

“As a WISE ERG lead, I want to empower women to get out of their comfort zone and work hard to be the best they can be. Mel Robbins said, ‘There will always be someone who can’t see your worth. Don’t let it be you.’ We must be our number one cheerleader in our lives and not give up.”
