ANN ARBOR, Mich., Aug. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Censys was recently recognized by The Startup Weekly as a Diverse & Inclusive Employer in 2021. The Startup Weekly presented the Diverse & Inclusive Employer award to companies that have demonstrated a commitment to creating and maintaining equitable workplaces.
Censys believes that building a diverse and inclusive workforce must start with leadership. In the Spring of 2020, the Censys team created a D&I committee to spearhead several initiatives including diversity hiring training, the creation of several employee resource groups, and an annual calendar to celebrate and learn about all walks of life, including events like Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage & Pride Month, National Parents Day, and Women’s Equality Day. The company also hosts regular town halls with leadership present to protect dialogue around current events and runs ongoing inclusion surveys to continuously understand current demographics and identify areas of opportunity through continued company growth.
This year’s awards attracted many applications across company stages in the United States. The winners were selected by a panel of judges composed of top executives, founders, investors, and industry experts. The companies were evaluated based on a combination of employee survey results, proprietary fact sheets, online and offline reviews, and industry recognition.
«While our work around diversity and inclusion will never be done, I am very proud of the countless initiatives and efforts that the executive team has supported to be able to foster a diverse workforce and inclusive workplace,» said Jasmine Burns, Vice President of People. «We truly enable an environment where employees can bring their authentic selves to work every day and are committed to increasing representation and equitable people practices over time, and that is the ultimate goal.»
«This year’s award recipients have demonstrated what it takes to truly embrace workplace diversity across all aspects of their businesses. All the award recipients have placed utmost emphasis on human capital. The judging panel commend all the awardees,» said Peter Justin, Managing Editor of The Startup Weekly.
