Fostering and supporting a diverse and inclusive workforce has always been a priority for me throughout my career. Shortly after I took over at Ivanti as CEO, I pulled together a taskforce to look at our diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB) policy and make sure it truly represented who we are as Ivanti. Our company, because of our foundation through acquisition, was made up of a diverse set of companies, backgrounds and cultures. As an acquisitive company, by our very nature we know that our whole is greater than the sum of our parts, so we want the mindset of inclusion – and the Ivanti Everyone principles – to proliferate.

It has been proven that diversity enhances innovation and better decision making within an organization. Making sure that we have diversity of thought at Ivanti will help us reach new markets, increase performance, and will help us improve our business by being more innovative, creative, flexible and equitable. 

I’m proud of our new DEIB policy presented below, and to share a few ways that we are supporting this important program. Because actions speak louder than words. 

Ivanti Everyone in Action:

  • Ivanti is sponsoring the Utah Pride Festival for the first time ever.
    • We hope to see our customers and partners based in and around Salt Lake City at our booth at the festival.
  • In honor of Juneteenth, we are placing renewed emphasis on our partnership with Circa, a diversity recruitment service. This is an important partnership that enables us to hire a diverse workforce of the future. Our goal is to attract, develop and retain the best and brightest from all backgrounds.

I hope everyone will celebrate these days and events. 

At Ivanti, a core value is creating a diverse and inclusive environment where all perspectives are heard, respected and valued. We enable and secure the Everywhere Workplace by ensuring that everyone at Ivanti can bring a full range of views and talents to work with them every day. Through inclusive practices and diversity Ivanti will be increasingly capable of solving complex challenges, locking arms with one another, and providing unique insight and support to customers and partners. To meet increasingly global and complex challenges, Ivanti must attract, develop and retain a diverse workforce that will enhance organizational success.
