Case Study

Building a strong foundation of inclusion and a diverse workforce during a high-growth phase

Why have you joined the TechTown Diversity Pledge now?

We are in a high-growth phase, which is the optimal time to build a strong foundation of inclusion and build a diverse workforce early on. We have the resources in place to make this a concerted and long-term effort, which we want to capitalize on.

Why is this important to your company?

We have  an obligation to do better, be better, and work towards changing the systems that create barriers to entry. We want to allow for creativity and innovation, and know that diversity and the ability to bring your whole self to work help create space for that. We will be stronger as an organization and have better business outcomes if we make D&I a priority and not an afterthought.

How is your company expecting to benefit from joining the TechTown Pledge Community?

We are excited to keep learning from people who have already developed policies that work and applying them to the needs of our business. It also helps us think systemically & keep up on the best practices, as well as stay connected to the greater community, especially underrepresented populations.

Would you say to another Portland tech company considering joining the pledge?

The tech industry has historically been challenged in attracting diverse populations. It is our collective responsibility to commit to changing the way we operate. Joining the pledge allows organizations to connect to others who are already doing great work in the space, and provides the needed support to commit to D&I efforts.
