Gender, Sexual, and Romantic Minorities

The GSRM affinity group provides a safe, inclusive and productive workplace for GSRM employees by educating the company on GSRM issues, guiding the company on recruitment, outreach and retention strategies; and providing support and mentorship in career and personal growth.
GSRM allows me to bring my full self to work—I’m able to be more innovative, productive, and happy. We discuss LGBTQA+ issues in a safe space with GSRM individuals and allies and provide education to help inform our peers about these issues.

Neurodiversity

The Neurodiversity affinity group’s mission is to help Pendozers with ADHD, ASD, or other neurological differences be accepted, and thrive at Pendo. This group works to provide mentorship, guidance, and support for ND individuals and for parents, loved ones, and caregivers of ND family members.
The concept of neurodiversity is still new to many people, and many common business practices can be inadvertently exclusionary or restrictive to ND individuals. It is important to us that all of our ND voices are heard and that different neurotypes are understood so that we can all contribute, bring our whole selves to work, and share our unique perspectives.

Femmegineers

The Femmegineers affinity group provides a safe space of understanding for underrepresented genders in engineering roles, creating opportunities for collaboration, mentorship, personal development and career growth.
Joining the Femmegineers has really helped me feel welcomed and supported since day one. I love all of our open conversations and all of the praise we give a fellow femmegineer when they accomplish something. I’m proud to be part of a group that accepts and supports all genders working in tech.
