Thanks to RDI’s community connections in the Greater Cincinnati area, many of our local employees and their families were offered free Cincinnati Reds tickets for a game against the Washington Nationals (booo!).
Take a peek at all the fun, laughter, smiles, and snacks—Cracker Jack, anyone?—that were had. With a final score of 2-3, this one did not belong to the Reds; however, the time we spent together was the real WIN.
Joi Turner, RDI’s very first Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Director, shares her RDI success story. It all began in April 2018 when Kelcie Best, Vice President of East Coast Operations, invited Joi to join RDI’s brand new Learning & Development team.
Joi jumped from strength to strength within Learning & Development and Operations until partnering with senior leadership on RDI’s corporate DEI strategy and RDI IDEAL, our internal diversity leadership council. Joi helped implement diversity and inclusion training into all internal development programs.
Like so many, Joi found RDI to be a fantastic place to seize opportunities and develop skills through the trust that leadership places in all our employees. RDI’s growth and development mindset led to Joi’s most recent career opportunity: Director of DEI strategy at another organization. Congratulations to Joi!
A long-time community partner of RDI, Meals on Wheels, reached out earlier this summer for assistance servicing the local area: delivering Birthday Boxes! These birthday boxes have everything you need for some birthday fun, including birthday hats, cards, and of course, CAKE! RDI employees and leadership stepped up to the challenge, as always!
Meals on Wheels’ Birthday Box program aims to connect seniors in local communities with others and celebrate them. This program also helps to fight senior isolation, loneliness, and food scarcity. These delivery drivers are sometimes the only person a senior will see in a week, so a very special thank you to every RDI leader who volunteered their time to make someone else’s week a bit brighter.
We say it time and time again: RDI’s strength is our people.
Join us in celebrating this week’s anniversaries, from year 1 all the way to 20+!
