The Belonging Initiative

Penn-Mar’s “Live Your Legacy” statement includes a promise to team members to strengthen our culture by providing education, growth opportunities, and renewed respect and appreciation across the organization.

Our “Belonging at Penn-Mar” initiative is an important component of this promise. When we feel respected and appreciated, we feel like we belong. Every team member at Penn-Mar should feel that sense of belonging. This initiative is an intentional exploration of Penn-Mar’s culture to become an even more inclusive organization from the inside out.

Our Leadership Team is deeply invested in the Belonging Initiative and their doors are always open.
