We are excited to welcome Avery to our team as an Intern! Avery recently started with PhoenixTeam and has already made an impact with our team! Learn more about Avery in her own words below!

Why did you choose Phoenix:
I chose Phoenix because I watched my sister create a diversity and inclusion plan from scratch this summer and I thought, wow I want to be in a place where I can do that. Our parents have always taught us how important topics such as diversity, equity, and inclusion are, not only to us, but to everyone. I wanted to be a part of a company that also valued those things and really put their money where their mouth is, and Phoenix does that. 

What have you loved about your Phoenix internship:
I love the family feel I get from the whole company! Yes, my sister works for Phoenix, but truly the entire staff treats each other like family. Everything is focused on helping and supporting one another to be better. I get to learn in depth about so many topics, and there is always someone there to lend a guiding hand. I have also had the opportunity to pitch ideas and they are appreciated and heard, which is really special because I don’t think a lot of internships are like that. 

What is something exciting you’ve done so far/ are looking forward to doing:
I am looking forward to working on the weekly diversity, equity, and inclusion blogs on our confluence page. We had so many ideas for the blogs we already have them planned out through the end of the year! I also love making the graphics for the different heritage months on how to be a good ally to specific communities. I think it’s important that we all try to be the best we can be to and for each other!
