“Our commitment to addressing diversity and inclusion is not just a competitive or reputational issue, but a societal issue where CEOs and corporate leaders can and should play a critical role in driving real change.”

Ketan Patel, VP Cortellis, Product Platform

Since launching our company’s values in 2018, ‘value every voice’ has become one of our core tenets.

It sounds like a simple concept but to live this value means we must look deep inside our company, our communities and ourselves and challenge the status quo. Are we doing enough to impact real, lasting change – so we can look back and feel proud of the actions we’re taking at this moment?

We’ve taken our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging to a whole new level especially after witnessing instances of civil unrest and outcries for real change. We believe that our colleagues are our most important asset and see people coming together from different cultures and backgrounds, with different life experiences, as a key driver of innovation. We know that colleagues who feel engaged and included will be the most proactive and productive.

Our goal is to weave these principles into the fabric of our culture to become a recognized global leader and employer of choice. Throughout our organization and across all our regions, we are accelerating innovation and action in support of a more diverse and inclusive workforce. As a company, we’re magnifying our voice, our platform and our resources to address injustice and inequity wherever it occurs.
