Kim Vu, Global Head of DEI, Remitly
Why is diversity, equity, and inclusion important for your organization?
Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are deeply rooted in our purpose and mission at Remitly. Our focus every day is to tirelessly deliver for our customers, many of whom may be underrepresented in the countries they’ve migrated to, and have historically been left out of traditional financial systems. To effectively serve millions of customers who send money home to their families in 100+ different countries, requires teams of committed individuals who demonstrate a deep level of empathy, genuine curiosity, value varied lived experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds, and appreciate the different ways we all think, process, present, and operate. The working environment and culture at Remitly, and the ways of working we employ, are designed to unlock the best thinking and inspire impact from our diverse teams.
