BURLINGTON, Mass., September 10, 2020 – Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management (CEM), announced today its ongoing commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion with support for the Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council (“MassTLC”) Tech Compact for Social Justice. As one of over 75 Massachusetts technology company signatories, Everbridge commits to make continued change towards equality and belonging in its organization.
The Tech Compact for Social Justice was established under the leadership of the Executive Diversity and Inclusion Steering Committee of the MassTLC Board of Trustees to effect meaningful change in making Massachusetts’ tech industry more diverse, inclusive, and socially just. To participate in the Tech Compact, technology companies commit to diversity, inclusion, and social justice initiatives such as: expanding educational programs/opportunities to create a judgement-free culture, creating greater racial diversity in hiring and leadership development, and strengthening diverse talent pipeline development programs (supporting K-12 education programs and internships, etc.).
“Everbridge is a mission-based company providing technology that helps to keep people safe and organizations running,” said Cara Antonacci, Head of People & Culture at Everbridge. “Perhaps most foundational to our culture, we believe that every one of our Bridgers across the globe deserves to be included, respected, and valued. Joining MassTLC’s Tech Compact for Social Justice represents an important step in making continued progress in our company, industry, and community.”
MassTLC’s Tech Compact for Social Justice commits to making the Massachusetts tech industry more welcoming and inclusive and to demonstrating leadership in diversity, inclusion and social justice. “This is how change happens, and that is why we launched the Tech Compact for Social Justice,” stated Tom Hopcroft, CEO of MassTLC.
Everbridge demonstrates commitment to diversity, inclusion and belonging by focusing on several key initiatives such as aligning the company’s hiring and recruiting practices based on attracting a diverse and talented workforce; creating employee resource groups (ERGs) dedicated to celebrating and empowering communities within the company including women, employees of color, LGBTQ, and members of the military and first responders; holding open forums for company-wide discussion and dialogue on civil unrest and equal justice; and supporting a growing ecosystem of minority-owned and led suppliers and partners.
