Unison Releases Inaugural Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Report

Reflecting the firm’s commitment to DEI through its standout growth in 2021 and 2022

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Unison, the leader in equity sharing agreements, released its 2022 Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) report, continuing the firm’s commitment to transparency and dedication to DEI as a core value to the business. In the report, it highlights Unison’s focus on ingraining DEI into its recruiting and work processes.

The report details: Unison’s core values, how they informed the development of its mission statement and the framework they’re leveraging to build a team as diverse as its customer base of US homeowners. The report also highlights how Unison has made a meaningful impact over the last year.

“It has always been my belief that diversity is crucial to meaningfully delivering our product and enhancing our company culture,” said Thomas Sponholtz, Unison Founder and CEO. “Homeowners represent the wide-ranging diversity of this country, and we could not serve them as well as we do if we did not mirror the same variety of backgrounds and perspectives.”

A key metric of the report is creating and amplifying a diverse leadership group throughout both the San Francisco and Omaha offices as well as remote employees. Since Q2 2022, women now fill 53% of leadership positions (defined as Director and above), in contrast to 37% in Q2 2021. This increase is demonstrated across the board. As of February 2022, 45% of employees identified as women and 57% as underrepresented groups among over 100 employees across 19 states.

“DEI is an important part of our core culture; it’s embedded in our daily work for our clients and our team,” said Holly Danko, Chief People Officer at Unison. “While there is still work to do, we are unbelievably proud of these metrics and the culture that we continue to build. We will always strive for inclusion that celebrates our unique backgrounds and skills, highlighting what everyone brings to the table.”
