American Solutions for Business Senior Leadership Members Earn Diversity & Inclusion Certification
American Solutions for Business’ senior leadership team members have completed their Diversity, Equity & Inclusion certification from Stanford University. Through a six-module course, members of American’s highest level of management have set the precedent for their employees by committing over 10 hours per week to create a better understanding of DEI in the workplace.
“The course was much more relevant to the workplace than others that we looked at,” explained Justin Zavadil, President of American. “Not only did we have the opportunity to understand what diversity meant to us individually, but we were also given the opportunity to analyze how it fit into the structure of our organization.”
In addition to interviewing others regarding how DEI has had an impact on their lives, the course also included assignments such as diversifying your workplace and reanalyzing the language of job applications in order to appeal to both masculine and feminine audiences.
“The DEI certification process through Stanford University is outstanding,” expressed Amy Spychalla, VP of Strategic Operations Support. “I’ve been able to take what I’ve learned and apply it to every aspect of my life – both personally and professionally. Our Senior Leadership Team is embracing what we’ve learned and putting it into action.”

In 1985, NASA Astrophysicist and Optical Engineer Dr. Mitch Ruda was working on a project for NASA when he had a simple idea: what if we used the coatings that protect satellites to shield our eyes from the sun? Dr. Ruda uses the NASA-developed protective coatings that protect satellite portholes from space radiation on a pair of sunglasses to protect the eye. With this revolutionary finding, Revo is born. From iconic brand ambassadors to distinguished partners, and innovative technology, Revo™ has become an internationally renowned sunglasses brand. Visit www.stregisgrp.com to browse the Revo™ sunglasses collection.
