Internal and External Communications

Our internal newsletter, News About U, keeps employees informed about news and events throughout the Company. It includes spotlights on a wide range of employee stories and experiences. United also communicates externally to our stakeholders through various channels, including diverse spotlights through social media.


Serving Diverse Customers

We continuously focus on expanding our customer base to reach broader demographics, particularly those who are historically underserved. Each year, we develop a fair lending plan, outlining community outreach activities and developing marketing plans for reaching our diverse customer segments.

 

Our employees partner with numerous nonprofit organizations that serve culturally diverse clients. Many of these partnerships go beyond volunteering, such as our investment partnerships with community development finance institutions that support minority-owned small businesses.

 

Through our community development lending line of business, we provide commercial loans that create and retain affordable housing. While expanding access to quality, affordable rental homes is important to solving the housing affordability crisis across the nation, we also understand that expanding homeownership for diverse communities is essential to closing the racial wealth gap. Our United team members participate in many mortgage-related outreach activities, such as first-time homebuyer workshops in diverse communities.
