Xena Women In Tech Awards: D&I Tech Employer of The Year
Which companies go above and beyond to make diversity and inclusion a reality?
As tech companies take a stance on D&I and hiring women or underrepresented minorities becomes a modus operandi rather than a temporary act – we live in times where diversity is slowly starting to feel tangible. Quite exciting if you ask us!
Even though D&I is a shared responsibility between us all, we can’t deny that companies play a crucial role in taking diversity and inclusion to the next level. Companies have the power to push the agenda forwards, set the tone, and simply show how it’s done through example. That’s precisely what this D&I Tech Employer of The Year Award is about. Dedicated to highlighting the work that is being done behind the scenes, from setting up internal D&I initiatives, ERG groups, to closing the pay gap and everything in between.
That’s why we’ve teamed up with Preply to celebrate those companies that build inclusive environments for their employees, empower the minorities within their organisation, and are committed to making an impact in the tech industry. That’s why caught up with Sophie Ingham and Deepti Sahi from Preply to deep dive on our collaboration but in the meantime..
