We're making strides towards change in the Tech industry

As one of the nation’s leading Managed Service Providers, Dataprise is committed to maintaining what gives us our competitive edge: our fantastically diverse people and culture.

We are intentional in our creation of a multi-faceted DEI Strategy which focuses on a commitment to creating a workplace that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive.

 

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)

A diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace is one where ALL employees, whatever their gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, sexual orientation or identity, education or disability, feel valued and respected.

Diversity The presence of differences across an organization.

EquityEveryone has access to the same opportunities.

InclusionPeople with different identities feel valued, leveraged, and welcomed.

At Dataprise, we celebrate what makes us unique: our people. We believe in fostering a diverse and inclusive work environment that seeks and embraces thoughts and ideas from all different backgrounds. We welcome everyone and are committed to providing equal employment opportunity regardless of race, gender, religion, ethnicity, disability, national origin or sexual orientation.

We are Dataprise PROUD.

Dataprise CEO Steve Lewis

“No single individual is responsible for creating an inclusive culture - it takes a commitment from everyone - but it starts with me. I believe when we listen and celebrate what is both common and different across everyone on our team that we become wiser, stronger, and far better as an organization. It is important to me that every person at Dataprise feels heard and represented and they have room to thrive. I am encouraged by the diverse makeup of our company today, but we can – and must – do more. The goal of our DEI Program is to work towards creating more opportunity across all levels. Doing so will lead to a more dynamic and unified organization.”

- Steve Lewis, Dataprise CEO

Women at Dataprise

We are proud of the fantastic work our female employees contribute throughout the organization and feel the women of Dataprise play an integral role in the company’s success.

Our hope is that Dataprise continues to raise awareness to women about how gratifying working in the technology industry can be and keeps empowering more women to consider a career in technology for themselves. We’re happy to say that we've continued to hire more women every year, with 16% of our 2020 hiring being women. We are working hard to ensure this number only increases over time.

No matter where you are in your career, or what technology you want to focus on, Dataprise offers a broad range of support, programs, and resources to advance women in technology.

DEI Strategy 4 Key Aspects of our DEI Strategy

Leadership

Executive sponsorship is the #1 indicator of a business initiative's success and we are grateful that our DEI efforts have full support across our entire Executive Management team.

“Leadership means you understand the significance of inclusion regardless of race, color or creed. Leadership also means you recognize the individualism of each team member for their unique strengths and weaknesses with support, guidance and never-ending opportunity.”

Steve Roth, Chief Revenue Officer

Attract

We’ve made some recent key adjustments to our talent acquisition strategy, including creating more inclusive job descriptions and leveraging our Applicant Tracking System (ATS) analytics to identify under-represented groups and use that data to post jobs to a sites that may attract more diverse talent.

"Our collaborative and innovative environment would not be possible without the unique perspectives of our diverse team of employees. Highlighting our inclusive culture and attracting more diverse talent to the Dataprise team is imperative to our growth and success."

Kristina Mack, Senior Marketing Manager

Hire

The Talent Acquisition team at Dataprise prioritizes hiring from a diverse talent pool by posting jobs to a wide-range of job sites that attract candidates from all backgrounds, establishing relationships with colleges and universities that have a large minority population, and by partnering with organizations that empower minorities and under-represented communities.

“Our people represent our largest investment and our most valuable asset. We believe in attracting the best talent, empowering employees to reach their full potential, and fostering a positive, welcoming, and inclusive environment where they can thrive. We work hard to cultivate a culture where everyone can bring their full and authentic selves to work each day. Having a variety of experience and perspectives makes us stronger – as individuals and as an organization.”

Marissa Withers, Vice President of Human Resources

Retain

To retain diverse talent at Dataprise, we have formed a DEI committee to serve as diversity ambassadors who will ensure the DEI strategy is executed on. Regular data analysis is also being conducted to track how we’re doing.

“We want everyone in the organization to know they have an equal opportunity to grow and succeed no matter their race, religion or age. Our people are so important to us and it’s important every employee feels that they are treated equally and have a sense of belonging.”

Scott Gordon, President
