Recently, George signed the Hispanic Promise, a pledge to hire, promote, retain and celebrate Hispanic colleagues. He is on the Board of Directors of Pangea Legal Services, who work to provide legal resources to wrongfully detained immigrants, where he has helped to develop better non-profit oversight of budgeting and strategic decisions.
