Orem, UT, December 18, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Thrivous, a human enhancement company, has joined the Tech Inclusion Pledge as announced by President Obama. At the Global Entrepreneurship Summit this past summer, President Obama announced a commitment by senior leadership from 33 companies of all sizes to fuel American innovation and economic growth by increasing the diversity of their technology workforce. 46 additional companies have now joined this pledge, committing to take concrete action to make the technology workforce at each of their companies representative of the American people as soon as possible.
Lincoln Cannon, CEO at Thrivous, said, "I believe diversity contributes to strength, both for communities and businesses. Participation in the Tech Inclusion Pledge is an expression of Thrivous' commitment to build an enduring business in a socially responsible way."
During National Entrepreneurship Month, 79 companies, including Thrivous, are making a bold commitment to fuel American innovation and economic growth by increasing the diversity of our technology workforce.
They resolve to take action to make the technology workforce at each of their companies fully representative of the American people, as soon as possible. They will treat this goal as a top management priority and business imperative, because tapping the full measure of talent from across the country is critical for the long-term success of both their individual companies and the nation as a whole.
Participating companies are committed to taking each of these three essential actions:
- implement and publish company-specific goals to recruit, retain, and advance diverse technology talent, and operationalize concrete measures to create and sustain an inclusive culture;
- annually publish data and progress metrics on the diversity of our technology workforce across functional areas and seniority levels;
- invest in partnerships to build a diverse pipeline of technology talent to increase our ability to recognize, develop and support talent from all backgrounds.
They encourage more companies to sign this Tech Inclusion Pledge at tech-inclusion.org.
