Diversity in The Workplace
As a minority-owned company, United Data Technologies’ workforce represents a true snapshot of the communities in which we work and live.
At UDT we are proud of our diverse cultural mix and we recruit, employ and promote people of all genders, ages, races, religions, sexual orientations, physical abilities, cultures and nationalities.
We respect and encourage each employee’s desire to grow and learn, rewarding them commensurate with experience and tenure with regard to pay, advancement, benefits, training and education. Our company is committed to fostering an environment where diversity is appreciated as a source of strength and vitality.
As a minority company ourselves, we understand the importance and the critical nature of inclusion and diversity at every level of our organization. We strive to be an effective and useful vendor to all of our partners seeking to fulfill their supplier diversity opportunities. United Data Technologies is a proud minority-certified member of the following agencies:
- South Florida Minority Development Council
- The State of Florida
- Broward Health
- Miami-Dade County Commission
- National Minority Council
- Via Federal Government
- Via Federal Parent of SFMDC
At UDT we are committed to building an environment of inclusion and acceptance that values diversity across all areas of our business. To that end, UDT is committed to a diverse supply base that reflects the demographics and values of our Company, customers, and the communities in which we operate.
We’ve found that by embracing our uniqueness and differences, our whole is greater than the sum of our parts. This is supported by our efforts to create a winning culture that defines the attitudes and behaviors required to make our vision a reality.
UDT gives to the community in small and big ways, from a few hours volunteered by a team member to local initiatives that promote literacy, the arts, sportsmanship, and community building. To make an even bigger impact, we’ve partnered with the following organizations:
- Urban League of Broward County
- Miami-Dade School Board
- Miami-Dade College Foundation
- U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
- 12th Man Football and Cheer Camp
- Junior Achievement
- Dade Christian School
Diversity puts us in touch with our customers and with the many communities where we conduct business every day. It is much more than an individual's ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or age. It is our commitment to creating a work environment free of all types of discrimination, and one that makes UDT a valuable minority partner to all of our customers. Diversity makes us a smarter, more responsive company and, provides us an edge in our efforts to improve the quality of life of all those whom we serve.
The Schools and Libraries Program of the Universal Service Fund, commonly known as “E-rate,” is administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) under the direction of the FCC. This program provides discounts on products and services essential for classrooms and libraries to obtain voice, data and video capabilities. The discounts depend upon the level of economic need of the school, among other things. UDT has provided our clients with assistance in obtaining services in many economically disadvantaged schools and can guide clients through the benefits and requirements of this program.
