FORT WORTH, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Elevate Credit, Inc. (NYSE: ELVT), a leading tech-enabled provider of innovative and responsible online credit solutions for non-prime consumers, proudly announced today the company's next step in strengthening its commitment to diversity and inclusion by introducing Mosaic, an employee-led multicultural network. The new initiative, led by Director of Bank Products Dion Harrison, will help connect the Elevate community by promoting and celebrating the importance of diversity in the workplace.
Chosen for his passion for diversity and inclusion, Dion Harrison will lead the Mosaic network in its first year. Harrison is involved with Junior Achievement and homelessness programs in the local Dallas/Fort Worth communities and is poised to help Elevate enhance its internal diversity practices and increase community outreach.
"Dion is the perfect person to lead Mosaic in its inaugural year. He is not only a leader at Elevate, where he is at the helm of our bank relationship and product management teams, but he also commits his time to helping others in our community," said Jason Harvison, CEO of Elevate. "Dion is a dedicated advocate for these issues, and I am excited to see how Mosaic will help strengthen our diversity and inclusion efforts and bring our community closer together."
The network will focus on four key areas: promoting a diverse and inclusive workforce, celebrating cultural heritage, increasing shared perspectives, and promoting involvement in the local community.
"I am honored to lead Mosaic and help Elevate leverage and celebrate our differences," said Harrison. "We know that we are better able to serve our customers when we have a strong employee community, and I am dedicated to ensuring these efforts remain a top priority across our teams."
