As innovators, we’re always seeking out firsts, and I’m excited to introduce our 2020 Inclusion, Diversity, and Engagement report — the first of its kind for us. It marks an important step in creating a more transparent and accountable workplace for the years to come.
So why now? Well, of course, we’re proud of the amazing work that so many have done at Akamai. And we want to celebrate the meaningful strides we’ve taken toward becoming a more inclusive and diverse organization. But crucially, in a time where each employee deserves to be heard, recognized, and supported more than ever, we believe transparency is key in bringing about real-world change. We know that we have further to go, and we believe that we can continue to do better, together.
At Akamai, we see inclusion, diversity, and engagement as essential to our learning and our quality of professional life. In my short time here, I’ve already witnessed the commitment, compassion, and brilliance of our people. Our values guide everything we do, and nowhere is that more evident than in the sincere and consistent measures we take to support inclusion, diversity, and engagement. I look forward to many more reports, with many more successes.
