At Infotech, we don’t have one culture, we have many. We celebrate diversity, creativity and individuality. Authenticity matters, and people’s differences – experiences, thoughts, abilities, identity, perspective – are what keep us moving forward.
Equity is an organizational commitment, and our promise to ensure equal opportunity begins with the first step of the hiring process. Comfort and connection are an important part of loving a new job, so we ensure our interview panels are as diverse as the talent we search for, we place a strong emphasis on ensuring pronouns are clearly known, and our dress code is a philosophy, designed so that our people can wear what makes them feel confident.
We believe that work is a part of life, not its opposite, which is why we are always looking for ways to improve our culture so our people can find success here. Success looks different for each individual, and we are committed to finding the right path for everyone.
A few of our people-first initiatives are:
We meet people where they are, whether that means opportunities for celebration of what they believe, offering support for caregivers, tuition and professional development assistance, or investing in compassionate communication. Drawing on insight from our teams and our community, we know we can always do more, because the most important step to take is the next one.
(Dis)Ability: A culture of inclusivity should allow the flexibility to work how and where you are most able. We believe in meeting the needs of our people and always finding more ways to increase accessibility so everyone can succeed.
Family: We’re family founded and family is one of our highest priorities. We want to make sure work is just one part of life, so we follow the words of our founder, Dr. Jim McClave: Family comes first. Always.
Gender and Gender Diverse: The future is equal. With 43% of the leadership team identifying as female, we aim to set the standard for an equal workforce. Our focus is on equity and inclusion in regards to reward and career potential, where character and skill are the deciding factors and individuals are seen for who they are.
LGBTQ+: To help our people be proud of who they are, we have multiple avenues of support for individuals all across the LGBTQ+ spectrum and comprehensive education opportunities for all employees to learn about the LQBTQ+ community.
Race + Ethnicity: Taking responsibility and taking action are vital in the fight for racial justice. When it comes to our community of color, we are always pursuing ways to be the better we hope to see: to provide better access, better opportunities and better support to everyone who has been overlooked in favor of a monochrome world.
Veterans: Our people each have incredible life stories and for many that includes time serving our country in the military. We are proud to show our gratitude and to provide a strong community of recognition for our veterans.
There is no one size fits all, off-the-shelf program for diversity and inclusion. It’s a living thing, constantly evolving. But we cannot afford to let fear of what’s next halt our progress, we must keep going.
Infotech’s Committee for Diversity and Inclusion [CDI] promotes diversity, equity, justice and inclusion for all Infotech employees by supporting an environment founded on Infotech’s commitment to treat people right. Or as we call it, TPR. Comprised of a diverse group of Infotechers from across departments, leadership levels and background, the CDI has four objectives:
We never want to miss an opportunity to learn about, engage with or celebrate the experiences that make us individual, and our CDI was founded through our intentions to accelerate a culture where everyone belongs.
Data tells a story, and we want our data to tell a story of inclusion, of diversity, of belonging. And yet, each of us is more than a point on a chart or a number in a tally. We recognize the importance of both, celebrating our differences as we ensure a fair and equitable future for all.
