Southeastern Grocers Introduces ‘MOSAIC’ Resource Group

Southeastern Grocers MOSAIC

Southeastern Grocers Inc. is expanding its commitment to belonging, inclusion and diversity with its recently established associate resource group – Mobility, Support, Accessibility and Inclusion in the Community (MOSAIC).

The purpose of MOSAIC is to educate, advocate and celebrate SEG employees of all abilities by sharing experiences, providing educational training around disabilities and advocating for disability diversity, equality, inclusion and accessibility.

Southeastern Grocers has donated $5,000 to The Jericho School for Children with Autism, a private nonprofit school that provides student resources and education programs for North Florida children with autism and other developmental disabilities.

“Celebrating our diverse associates, customers and communities includes people of all abilities. It cultivates an environment that champions inclusion and belonging inside our stores and in the unique neighborhoods we serve,” said Raymond Rhee, chief people officer for Southeastern Grocers.

“That’s why our support of The Jericho School for Children with Autism, its students and staff is a natural launch of our MOSAIC associate resource group. We believe in fostering partnerships that not only empower our associates but also enrich the lives of those around us. We are building a mosaic of diversity, unity and opportunity for all – and that’s what winning together looks like.”

Southeastern Grocers announced the MOSAIC group at its annual WeSEG Conference, an interactive forum held virtually for employees to empower them with fresh perspectives and calls to action as inclusive leaders and allies.

MOSAIC is one of nine associate resource groups created to support and celebrate employees, customers and communities. The grocer’s other associate resource groups include: Women’s Development Network, Emerging Leaders, SEG Pride, Pa’lante, African Americans FOCUS, ASPIRE, Military Families and Working Parents Network.

Southeastern Grocers also recently accepted applications from nonprofits throughout the Southeast for its 2023 Romay Davis Belonging, Inclusion and Diversity Grant.

The grant, ranging from $5,000-$25,000, supports organizations that work to address racial disparities in education, health care and food insecurity. Recipient nonprofit organizations will be announced following the grant namesake’s 104th birthday celebration on Oct. 29.

Since its inception in 2020, SEG’s Romay Davis Belonging, Inclusion and Diversity Grant has provided more than $685,000 in funding to qualified nonprofits to elevate underserved communities throughout Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi.
