XPO Black Employees and Allies
Equality as a Fundamental Human Right
XPO stands in solidarity with our Black employees. As a business, we will continue to stand up for equality as the most fundamental of human rights. There is still work to be done to reach this equality we’re striving for. Our commitment to Black employee inclusion includes:
- Recruitment, promotion and retention
- Inclusive workplace policies
- Professional development
- Equal benefits
- Diversity and Inclusion curriculum which includes programs on unconscious bias and allyship
"It’s a time of reflection, rejoicing and recommitting to reach the next generation. It’s not just about all the bad times we’ve been through. It’s about integrity, leadership and determination."
"It’s a time to reflect on the challenges African Americans have overcome and to commemorate our achievements. It’s because of the contributions of my ancestors that I am afforded the opportunities I have today. I’m proud to work for XPO where cultural diversity is both embraced and celebrated."
"It’s a time of celebration, equality and acknowledgement of all the accomplishments and contributions of African American people as a whole. This is also an opportunity to learn an integral part of our history and culture."
"It brings me pride. It’s a special time to reflect on the achievements and contributions of African Americans throughout American history. Remembering the accomplishments of not only notable African Americans but also ordinary Black Americans gives me deep pleasure, honor and dignity."
"It’s a celebration of knowledge. It represents the past, present and future of the African American culture and it’s a reminder of all the positive and innovative things that come from our culture and how it made a huge impact on future generations."
"It’s important because it helps us remember and celebrate the many events and achievements of African Americans. It’s empowering and it should continue to encourage all African Americans to make a difference and be a better version of themselves."

Willie Mazyck, Senior Vice President, Talent Development
It has always been critically important to me to lead inclusively with heightened introspection and authenticity. I’ve been fortunate to work with exponentially committed teams and that commitment was made possible because of a safe, open and inclusive environment, absent of bias. I believe that when we can work fully as ourselves, we win and the business wins. My job as executive sponsor of the black employees and allies ERG is to break down barriers for our employees and ensure that there is professional equity and fulfillment. I look forward to partnering with our ERG members to help our employees realize and unleash their greatest potential.
