On today’s edition of Up To Speed, host Jennifer Marin shared a full overview of our Parents and Caregivers Together (PACT) Employee Resource Group’s (ERG) month-long celebrations.
All August long PACT shined a spotlight on parents and caregivers with the theme: PACTfilled Adventure — Stronger together, better together, supporting & ImPACTing Verizon families.
Verizon PACT stands for “Parents and Caregivers Together”. This Employee Resource Group is committed to empowering parents and caregivers to succeed at work and in life through education and communal support.
